The first proof that Nokia 's device manufacturing partner has already crafted at least one Android smartphone has just surfaced!
Last September 30, 2016, a mysterious Nokia D1C handset along with its internal specifications appeared on Geekbench Browser 's device list.
Based on what's written on the site ( source ), it's clear that the product runs Android 7.0 Nougat operating system with its 1.4 GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 420 MSM 8937 processor and has 3GB of RAM for multitasking.
The benchmark test was run on the device a total of five times and the scores above are the highest marks it got. Could this phone be the rumored new Nokia phone with 5.2 and 5.5-inch screen options and powerful 22.6 MegaPixel camera? That, we should know for sure within the coming months.
Last May 2016, the Finnish Giant confirmed its much-awaited return to the mobile devices game after years of being tied to a contract with Microsoft. However, unlike its business model during its heydays in the late 1990's to early 2000's, Nokia will no longer be crafting and assembling its own smartphones but will simply collect royalties from HMD after licensing its name and set patents to devices that it will help conceptualize and develop with FIH. Nonetheless, the company reassures consumers that new Nokia-branded mobile devices 'will exemplify what consumers have come to expect from all Nokia devices, including quality, design, and innovation'.
