Just yesterday we reported on a render that was allegedly of a Nokia device called theÂ Nokia C1 – while Nokia is bound by their agreement to Microsoft not to get back into smartphones until 2016, there aren’t many months left in 2015, and it wouldn’t be surprising to know that development has been going on behind closed doors. According to some leaked photos that surfaced today, that’s exactly what has been happening as an actual Nokia C1 has been pictured running Android Lollipop.
It’s not a horrible looking device, but it’s clear that the simplistic design of the Lumia devices they used to make have influenced the design of the Nokia C1. The Nokia C1 isn’t expected to be a flagship device per se – expected to have a 5-inch display, Intel Atom processor, 2GB RAM, 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, it would likely fit in somewhere in the mid-range market. Having said that, it’s definitely a step up from the last “Android” Nokia smartphone, the Nokia X. We’ll have to see if more information about the Nokia C1 drops over the next few months leading up to 2016.
