Nokia was one of the giants in the global mobile market before the industry went through a major change. The company folded a few years ago by selling its mobile business to Microsoft and even Redmond couldn’t find its feet in the competitive market. The Nokia brand still holds a lot of value today and it’s now being revived. The upcoming Nokia Android smartphone has been spotted on GeekBench where it has revealed some of its specifications.
HMD Global is the company that’s working on Nokia’s comeback. It has a 10 year license to produce smartphones and tablets under the Nokia brand which are going to be built by Foxconn in China. Rumor has it that HMD Global is going to launch two high-end devices as well which will feature premium metal bodies, large displays, fingerprint scanners, and more.
As per the GeekBench listing, the upcoming Nokia D1C Android handset is going to be a mid-range device as it will be powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB RAM. The GeekBench listing also suggests that this handset will be running Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.
From the looks of it, this isn’t going to be a high-end device that people are going to line up to buy, but it may very well be a respectable mid-range device that’s affordably priced. That’s a crucial distinction because an affordable device that carries the iconic Nokia brand might capture the attention of customers who are in the market for an affordable yet robust device.
