Nokia is set to make a comeback to the mobile device world with a couple of devices. Those devices will range from smartphones to tablets (the company hinted as much in a video back in January), and, we hope, wearable devices as well.
Since Nokia is yet to announce anything a few months since it announced its elaborate plans to bounce back after a long absence in a market it once dominated, we have been left at the mercy of tipsters and other leakers. That’s why when a mysterious new device, the Nokia D1C, surfaced on several benchmark sites, it was automatically assumed that it was a smartphone. Going by its listed specifications, a budget one at that.
It turns out that the Nokia D1C is a huge 13.8-inch tablet running Android with some pretty nifty specs to boot as well. A full HD display, 3GB RAM, 16 or 32GB onboard storage, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera sensor backed by a 15/16 megapixel equivalent at the back, a Snapdragon 430 chip, a SIM slot and Android Nougat.
An official announcement for this and any other hardware Nokia and its new partner HMD have been working on may not be far off at this point in time and we’ll be right here with the details when that time comes.
