More Upcoming Nokia Device Specs and Images Leaked – Two Variants Incoming at the Start of 2017


More images of upcoming Nokia handsets have emerged and turns out that we have a new but late entry and from the looks of it, it is probably going to end up being the mid-ranged offering from the Finnish smartphone company. Let us take a look at the leaked images and the rumored specs in detail.

One Variant Named Nokia E1 Could Be a Mid-Ranger While the Flagship One Is Codenamed D1C

The leaked images (via TheAndroidSoul) of Nokia E1 shows that the smartphone is going to sport capacitive buttons at the bottom. Normally, I’d like to see ‘on-screen’ buttons since they don’t get in the way when you’re playing games or listening to multimedia and at the same time, it improves the aesthetic grade of the smartphone thanks to the removal of these buttons, which in turn could potentially increase the screen-to-body ratio of the device. There is no fingerprint sensor shown at the rear side, which could mean that the device is targeted to the mid-ranged crowd and has been rumored to feature a Snapdragon 600 series SoC.

As for the flagship model, we’re expecting great things. Previously it was reported that the flagship variant would sport a Snapdragon 820 SoC followed by 2K display and the famous Zeiss certified camera. It is possible that the device could come touting the Xenon flash like the company’s previous offerings, but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to find out. Both of these smartphones are rumored to get announced during the CES 2017 trade show, and both of them are going to running Android Nougat as soon as you remove them from their packaging.

While a Snapdragon 820 doesn’t sound bad at all, we were leaning more towards the announcement of the smartphone that would come with a Snapdragon 835. With 2017 starting in just a few days, it would be beneficial for Nokia to take advantage of the upgraded chipset and better internals if it wants to compete with modern-day flagships.
