Seems like Finnish smartphone legend, Nokia, don’t want to quit just yet after rumors broke that it is coming back to the smartphone game again after it mobile division was purchased by Microsoft Corp.
Even though Microsoft later changed it’s branding to Lumia devices, Nokia’s name in smartphone ended resulting in no phones further. But now, we have some good news. The new phone supposedly is named D1C. We aren’t really sure behind the reasoning of the name.
Even though it’s a consumer-end low/mid-range device, it’s now pretty evident that Nokia have decided to come to the markets again. Let’s take a look.
GeekBench, a popular benchmarking tool for all platforms, had a register logged with Nokia’s brand that sparked a whole lot of enthusiasm among the Nokia loyalists. The single-core clocked in about 667 points while the multi-core score was somewhere around 3300ish.
What’s more enthusiastic is that Nokia decided to jump directly to Android’s latest operating system, Android Nougat 7.0, while the other competitors in smartphone segment are still trap with Marshmallow and Lollipop etc.
As per the phone listing, we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 clocked at 1.4ghz surprisingly an octa-core processor. However, we have about 2GB of RAM.
The devices might come in two variants, one in a 5.2-inch display and the other in a 5.5-inch display OLED panel. These are all part of the rumor mill and nothing can be made out of checking at the GeekBench scores for now.
However, we’re pretty excited that Nokia finally made a choice to bounce back and try their best to survive. It’s pretty obvious that Nokia made one of the best range of smartphones back in the pre-smartphone days. If it’s anything of the same quality, there’s no absolute doubt that Nokia will be short of credits and appreciations since they are well known for their quality phones.
It’s only time dependent as to when Nokia will make the big change to keep bringing in quality smartphones based on Android OS and this will give a hard time to other competitors concentrating on budget smartphones.
