Leaks regarding the Nokia C1 continue to emerge, and this time rumors about tech specs surfaced alongside hints of exterior design.
The latest intel about the aspect of the phone and its specs come from the same source who pointed out earlier that Nokia C1 will join the mobile market in two models. Each of them will sport a different OS, Android and Windows 10 Mobile, respectively.
In the newest image of the elusive handset, the Nokia C1 is running the Z Launcher from the Android OS. Three color options exist for the device: peach, white and gray, but it is unclear if the backside will be metal or plastic. The design line is consistent with previous leaks, although Nokia did not confirm their accuracy.
The anonymous tipster revealed the info to Nokia Power User, claiming that the smartphone will come in two sizes when it launches. Each model will reportedly feature a different camera.
According to the source, the smaller Nokia C1 variant will be equipped with a 5-inch full-HD screen able to provide a 1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution. Behind the chassis, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage will be packed, alongside a camera combo featuring an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front snapper.
A larger variant will display its graphics on a 5.5-inch full-HD display, with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of standard storage. The main camera, with 13 MP, is more powerful than the one on the tinier Nokia C1. The face-facing camera will be 5 MP, most likely identical to the one on the smaller variant.
Additional rumors hint that Nokia had the smartphone on the crafting bench for so long that it decided to abort the initial hardware configuration and update it almost entirely.
In one previous leak, the Nokia C1 showed that it ran on both Android-based Z Launcher and Windows 10 Mobile. It might not be a coincidence that the leaks of Nokia C1 promise two configurations and two operating systems, but only an official release can confirm it.
Until then, all leaks should be treated with a healthy dose of skepticism.
A quick reminder on Nokia’s presence in the mobile market: the company is unable to launch a model under its brand name until Q4 2016, due to the former deal with Microsoft, which purchased its devices and services a while ago.
Earlier in 2015, Nokia underlined that it plans to return to manufacturing phones as quickly as possible. The company further noted that it is interested in designing consumer wearable items and that it dabbles in the Digital Media business as well.
