Nokia has set its sights on getting back to creating a new smartphone judging from the leaked images of the Nokia C1 Prototype. Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri shared that the Finnish company will definitely make a return to the mobile market once their deal with Microsoft about not using the Nokia name on smartphones expire, according to the Verge.
If you don?t have any clue about the deal between Nokia and Microsoft, the Finnish company is reportedly not allowed to build or sell smartphones until 2016 because of the ?acquisition deal? looped with Microsoft, shared by the Verge. But apparently, the deal should still allow Nokia to put their name on mobile-based devices. ?Microsoft makes mobile phones. We would simply design them and then make the brand name available to license,? a statement from Nokia according to the Verge. And judging from recent reports, the new Nokia C1 is about to be introduced.
According to the Verge, the concept Nokia C1 will run on the new Android Marshmallow which then will be powered by an Intel Atom processor backed by 2GB of RAM configuration. It will supposedly sport a 5.7-inch display with 1080p resolution that will be good news for long-time Nokia fans. The Nokia C1 will also include an 8-megapixel rear camera along with the 5-megapixel front-faced camera for taking those selfies.
Similar to the Nokia N1 Tablet, the new phone is likely going to be manufactured and distributed by Foxconn, which licensed Nokia?s design and brand, shared by the Verge. Although there?s still no announcement on whether or not Foxconn will partner again with Nokia, there established relationship with one another will likely make Foxconn the most probable candidate, according to the Verge.
Unfortunately, the leaked images that were supposedly the new Nokia C1 were a construction of a fan?s imagination. The original post was from Kim Wayne, who also created earlier renditions of the alleged C1, posted by the Verge.
