Nokia's first true Android phone, the C1, leaks out in pretty renders
posted by Daniel P. / Sep 04, 2015, 9:27 AM
This is a concept render of a purported Nokia C1 Android phone, based on rumors and leaked schematics.
Nokia's smartphone probation, as per the contract with Microsoft, will soon be running out, and the company will soon be legally able to make an Android handset. It is not wasting time designing it, either, it seems. After the interesting N1 Android tablet, it might release a Nokia C1 - its first Android smartphone from Nokia's new era. We saw it leaked back in December in some crude concept schematics, and now these have been fleshed out in a concept render by graphics artist Kim Wayne from all sides.
First off, the Nokia C1 is shown as a rather thin machine, with what looks like a fine screen-to-body ratio. This usually indicates a unibody design, and that's what the sources claim the C1 will have indeed. To those looking for some major specs spill, the Nokia C1 isn't a flagship, but rather a good-looking entry level Android, with a 5.0-inch HD display, an Intel Atom chipset, paired with 2 GB of RAM, and an 8 MP camera, coupled with a 5 MP front camera.
Nothing really exciting, but the sheer Nokia nostalgia might make an alleged C1 a hit when it lands, if it is reasonably priced, no matter if it looks like the concept render here or not. As to when will it be announced and released, there's no info just yet, though we certainly hope it will be in time for Android's 6.0 Marshmallow release in the fall.

You've made yourself unclear about "those bezels"... Which in my opinion are GREAT... THIS IS THE PHONE AND OPERATING SYSTEM,,, Nokia should have used from the START! Instead of going the Micro$oft way. Hope you can make a GREAT COMEBACK NOKIA. O.o

I hope they will join Meizu and will not make phone on their own. Meizu is capable of delivering pretty damn specs in budget price. Nokia-Meizu will be a formidable force to reckon

I bet Martin Cooper won't say that. And if the so called "clueless company" is the one who designed this, then they must have pretty good designers. But I do believe that Nokia has also joined in designing this beautiful phone.

You do realise old nokia talents are now working at microsoft. Nokia name means s**t without the people who made those amazing phones. I am pretty sure the telecommunication part of nokia never designed a phone when nokia mobile was there. So ye

You do realise that old nokia talent has been fired by Microsoft. Nokia name may means nothing to you but Nokia name still means a lot to general population of world. Moreover only few people know that Microosft acquired Nokia handset division, so these Nokia Android phones will most probably be a success.

95% of the talent Microsoft acquired from Nokia are now on unemployment, so your comment is DOA. Nokia designed this and it will be built with partners in China with their supervision. NEWS FLASH...NO DIFFERENT THAN BEFORE! All companies do this...build everything in China. As a matter of fact, I hope Foxconn is in on this. The iPhone is good looking and we'll built. If it's Meizu, so be it then. No different than a Moto these days, Mr. Cooper...designed in Chicago, built in Beijing. The days of U.S. built Moto's and Euro built Nokia's have been long gone. Move on, Coop. You're a fossil...

the only difference is that nokia has no power over the distributing of this design,, however if they design it well it shouldn't matter hopefully and to martin_cooper majority of the nokia senior designers stayed at nokia and the rest were fired by Microsoft
