Nokia under HMD Global is set to announce Android based smartphones in 2017. Some of the these devices are rumored to be announced in first quarter of 2017 itself with a focus on Budget or Mid range devices, yet rumors of a flagship Nokia device are still floating around. We have already seen leaks around Nokia D1C smartphone which gave us a sneak peek on what we can expect.
Adding credibility to these rumors, a new Nokia LTE smartphone has just popped up on Chinese certification agency 3C indicating the public launch of the device may happen soon. The 3C listing doesn’t reveal much except the model number of the device i.1. TA-1000 and the fact that it comes with standard 5V / 2A charging support which indicates no support for fast charging. Absence of fast charging clearly indicates that it is not a flagship device but only an entry-level smartphone. The listed device appears to be Nokia E1.
Rumors indicate that Nokia E1 sports a 5.5-inch display, powered by one of Qualcomm’s entry-level SOC chips of Snapdragon 200 series, and comes with just 1GB of RAM. It is rumored to run on Android 7.0 Nougat based operating system.
But as with any other leak reported on Androidpure, take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned at Androidpure and we will keep you updated.
