In April 2014, some part of Nokia was acquired by Redmond, Washington-based PC giant Microsoft in a $7.2 billion acquisition. These divisions include Nokia Devices & Services, the department responsible for producing Nokia phones.
The “real” Nokia — Nokia Oyj, Finland — which helped many of us to start our mobility journey by providing legendary devices like the 3310 and many others — have confirmed that they are working hard to pitch a tent in the mobile market once again post Nokia Devices & Services departure.
Hence, as a part of their new journey, Nokia confirmed in the 1st quarter of 2015 that they are going to launch a new smartphone with the help of Chinese OEM Foxconn. Based on the ever-popular Android platform, the handset is billed to arrive in 2016 under the name Nokia C1, .
Initial details of this device were released last week, but the pictures came on the interwebs yesterday. As per device specification is concerned, the C1 will be powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The device will have a 5 inch large touchscreen with the display resolution quality of 1080p.
With a very thin chassis, the upcoming Nokia smartphone will also offer an 8MP primary camera and LED flash. It will also have 32GB internal memory and 2GB RAM. It is expected that this device will hit the market in the beginning of next year as all the research, development and production is set to be carried out in China.
