The comeback of Nokia’s brand under HMD Global early next year has been highly anticipated and rumours surrounding the upcoming smartphones keep growing day by day. Up until now, it was rumoured that at least three Nokia-branded Android devices will be unveiled at MWC 2017 in February targeting the entry-level, midrange, and high-end categories. A fresh rumour however suggests that HMD Global will come out with four more models in Q2 and Q3 of 2017, which includes a variant of the Nokia D1C. It looks like HMD Global wants to bring back the Nokia brand swiftly with a total of at least five smartphones now rumoured for 2017. Digitimes cites supply chain sources to claim the four new models will have display sizes ranging from 5 inches to 5.7 inches, at QHD or full-HD resolutions. The sources further added that LG Display, Century Technology (CTC), and Innolux will be supplying the panels for the upcoming phones with FIH Mobile serving as production partner.

The first set of Nokia-branded smartphones is tipped to be unveiled by HMD Global in February at MWC 2017. The highly rumoured Nokia D1C is the most likely smartphone we will get to see at the MWC 2017. The Nokia D1C is rumoured to be a mid-ranged device that will be offered in two variants, depending on memory and display size. A more recent leak also suggests that there may be another mid-level device tipped as Nokia E1. Meanwhile, HMD Global is also expected to unveil its flagship Nokia-branded smartphone at MWC 2017 which is rumoured to pack a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and a 23-megapixel rear camera with Zeiss lens. We are still two months away from the MWC 2017, which means you can expect a few more leaks and rumours to pour in until then. With no official word from HMD Global or Nokia on any of the rumoured devices, we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see exactly what is in the works.

Nokia has been given a new lease in life, thanks to HMD Global. The company is now the rightful owner of the former top phone maker and it’s set to make new records in the mobile industry. It’s something Microsoft failed to do with the Nokia Windows Phone. Hopefully, the Nokia Android-powered devices will make it big since it’s what the Android community has been waiting for since news of Nokia being sold off was heard. Now we’ve got more good news about the brand. Four new Nokia phones will be released by HMD in 2017 beginning in the second quarter. The first one will be announced and shown off at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February. The Finnish company has been busy on design and production. It is also believed to have begun talks with suppliers like LG Display, Innolux, and Century Technology (CTC) to make four more phones that will be introduced the rest of the year.

Android Things, Google’s new operating system to power your toasters, routers, refrigerators and just about everything:

It is said that that the next decade will belong to Internet of Things and so most major tech companies are now focussing their might on it and Google is not far behind. Recently the search giant released the developer preview of a new Android-based Operating System which comes with different tools like Android SDK, Android Studio, Google Play Services packed into a single OS.

Android Things: Google Launches A New Operating System

The tech giant Google announced on Tuesday announced Android Things – its operating system for Internet of Things projects. Android Things OS will power various IoT products like security cameras, connected speakers, routers and everything that is connected to the Internet. With the launch of Android Things, Google takes another step to put Android everywhere, from smartphones earlier to refrigerators, toasters, routers, cameras etc. Read Also: Nokia D1C Price, Specifications, Android Phone Features: Everything We Already Know Google’s Android Things operating system is not new, in fact, it is built on Brillo, an operating system. Brillo operating system was announced in 2015 by Google and specifically designed for the Internet of things. It seems that Google has fused Brillo operating systems with Android tools and repackaged it as Android Things operating system. The new operating system will have pretty much the same tools that Android developers are already accustomed too, such as Android Studio, Android SDK, Google Play and other Google services. This should help Internet of Things manufacturers adopt the new operating system as well as get Android developers on board for developing Apps for IoT devices. Android Things – like project Brillo – is designed to be very small and take up low memory, about 32 Mb or 64 Mb of RAM. Google has said that it will partner with SoC (system on a chip) makers to build certified development boards containing development modules like RAM, Flash Storage, WiFi, Bluetooth and other components, and is currently recommending using Intel Edison, NXP Pico, Raspberry Pi 3 among other devices, as developer kits. Devices running Android Things will be able to communicate with other Android and iOS devices through Weave, the company’s communication platform for Internet of Things. In future, such Android Things powered devices will also allow voice commands with Google Assistant.

Android Things and IoT security

Google’s foray into IoT OS space is noteworthy because of the growing concerns over security of Internet of Things connected devices. Recently, a botnet attack powered by Mirai malware powered a DDoS attack on a DNS  provider in the United States bringing down the Internet for whole of Mid-West and East Coast of US for a full day. Android Things will hopefully cover the security aspects of IoT devices and provide timely security fixes so that the IoT will not be used for Dyn like attacks in future.

Out of rumoured Nokia phones, the Nokia D1C has been the one that has garnered most interest and has been part of several leaks. A recent leak claimed that it will launch in two variants and will be priced at $150 (roughly Rs. 10,000) for the 2GB of RAM model and at $200 (roughly Rs. 13,500) for the 3GB of RAM model. Based on preliminary leaks, the Nokia D1C is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with Adreno 505 GPU, and would come in 2GB and 3GB RAM variants. It is said to run on Android 7.0 Nougat and come in 5-inch and 5.5-inch full-HD display options. Both the variants are likely to come with 16GB inbuilt storage. On the camera front, the Nokia D1C variants are said to be available in 13-megapixel and 16-megapixel rear camera modules. Both the variants are expected to sport 8-megapixel camera at the front. The Nokia D1C in September was listed on Geekbench that revealed some under the hood innards. Apart from the Nokia D1C, the company is also rumoured to be working on an entry-level Nokia Android phone, named Pixel, which is said to run on Android 7.0.1 Nougat. According to a leaked Geekbench listing, it is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 SoC coupled with 1GB of RAM. The CPU is a dual-core variant at a clock speed of 1.19GHz. The entry-level Pixel Nokia phone is also said to support Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Under the tests run by Geekbench, the Nokia Pixel scored 404 on the single-core test while it resulted with 661 on the multi-core test. It is likely the name of this entry-level Nokia Android smartphone will change before being commercially launched. Apart from the rumoured Nokia D1C and Pixel, the Finland-based company is also expected to showcase a high-end Android smartphone at the MWC 2017. Based on preliminary leaks, the smartphone will feature a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch screen size and sport 2K (QHD) display. It is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. One of the highlight features of the upcoming high-end Nokia Android phone is said to be the Zeiss lens for the primary camera, something that has been seen on earlier Nokia devices. The Nokia Android phone is also rumoured to come with waterproof capability alongside sporting a metal unibody design. We can expect more details to be available as we come close to the MWC 2017 event that kicks off on February 27 in Barcelona.

Nokia is making a comeback in the fiercely competitive smartphone market. Nokia D1C is rumored to be the company’s first line of smartphones arriving early next year. Specifications of D1C have been leaked several times in the last few weeks. But a new report from Nokia Power User has revealed pricing details of Nokia D1C. If the report is to be believed, the first Nokia-branded Android smartphones will target the mid-range segment of the market.

Nokia D1C pricing: $150 and $200:

According to Nokia Power User, Nokia D1C will be available in two variants. One with 2GB RAM, 13MP main camera, and 5-inch display. The second model is said to feature 3GB RAM, 16MP main camera, and a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Sources familiar with the matter told the publication that the 5-inch model would be priced at $150 while its bigger sibling would cost $200. Nokia Power User added that the price leak does not come from their usual sources, so it should be taken with skepticism. The report added that both models will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and Adreno 505 GPU. Both D1C phones are said to come with Android 7.0 Nougat, 16GB of built-in storage, and 8MP front camera.

Foxconn to make Nokia-branded smartphones:

Nokia’s comeback will be spearheaded by HMD Global. HMD has signed a 10-year licensing deal to sell Nokia-branded smartphones and tablets. The iconic Finnish company’s feature phones still popular in several countries. HMD will take over Nokia’s feature phone business. Unlike other smartphone startups, HMD has many things going in its favor such as Nokia brand, an experienced management team, and Foxconn as a manufacturing partner. Though the Nokia D1C is a mid-range phone, HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela said in an interview with the Economic Times that the company will introduce devices at a “wide range of price points” and it won’t exclude any customer segment. Launching a mid-rage device means the company’s profit margins would be low in the beginning.

Nokia D1C likely to be unveiled at MWC:

HMD Global plans to convince the owners of Nokia feature phones to upgrade to its Android devices in markets like India, Russia, and Indonesia. India will be a key market for Nokia’s next phase of the journey, said Nummela. Nokia accounts for about 10% of all feature phones sold worldwide, though it has ceded some market share to Samsung, TCL, and other smaller players. Nokia D1C is expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The MWC will be held between February 27 and March 2, 2017. HMD Global has confirmed its presence at the MWC. Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri is also scheduled to speak at the MWC, which indicates that the Nokia-branded Android smartphone is just a few months away.

For all those who are eagerly waiting for Nokia’s Android smartphone foray, we have good news for you. The Nokia Android smartphones could arrive as early as November 2016, if the reports are to be believed. We had earlier reported about the new Nokia smartphone being benchmarked on GeekBench that suggested that an Android-powered device dubbed the Nokia D1C is in the works.

Now we can confirm that Nokia D1Crunning on Android 7.0 Nougat is indeed being tested and will probably be available to buyers as early as next month.

Nokia has been looking to make a comeback is well known as reported here about how Nokia is planning a comeback to the market with not one but two Android smartphones. Ever since we had reported on the leaked press renders of the new Nokia smartphones, we have been inundated by messages, both here and our social media for further news about Nokia’s forthcoming Android smartphones.

Now one of the upcoming devices seems to have been leaked, thanks to a benchmarking app, AnTuTu. Its model name is D1C, though you shouldn’t get too excited. Going by the phone’s specs this is no premium device, despite Nokia being rumored to launch two high-end handsets.

As reported earlier, the Nokia D1C seems to be a mid-range Android smartphonethat will be released with Nokia’s flagship smartphone.

Nokia D1C specs:

The benchmark suggests the phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz running on Adreno 505 GPU. It will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage with a microSD expansion slot. What catches the eye is awesomecamera specs on Nokia D1C. It will boast a superb 13-megapixel rear cameracoupled with an 8MP shooter on the frontfor selfies.  The Nokia D1C display is disappointing as it will come with 1920 x 1080 pixels.

All in all, this looks to be a mid-range device, running Android 7.0, with a 5.2-inch screen, going by previous hints.

With Android smartphone market in a bit of churn, Nokia seems to be timing its comeback to perfection. Samsung has been having issues with its Galaxy Note 7 while HTC and LG are nowhere to be seen and this seems to be the right time for Nokia to push the launch button.

We will keep you updated about the second Nokia Android smartphone which is supposed to be its flagship device and will purportedly feature awesome specs.
