Nokia’s comeback under HMD Global is one of the most anticipated events of next year, and the company is seemingly poised to launch five new Android smartphones in 2017. The Microsoft-acquired company is all set to launch their latest smartphones on the Android platform after their Lumia Windows phone line-up was promptly discontinued. Nevertheless, with quite a busy 2017 ahead, Nokia would look to launch a successful comeback into the smartphone market and are already set to unveil a few of their devices at the forthcoming CES 2017 event in Las Vegas.
Very recently, a new Nokia smartphone with model number TA-1000 has passed the China Compulsory Certification (3C) hinting at its imminent arrival – and it’s thought to be the Nokia E1 that was leaked recently. The smartphone comes with the model number TA-1000 apparently comes with 5V/2A charging support, which means that the specific smartphone does not support fast charging, something similar to the mid-range Nokia E1. One of the major reasons why people are looking out for this phone is due to its camera quality as the Nokia E1 is expected to have a 20MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera which is quite an impressive deal for a midrange device.
Further specifications revolving the rumoured E1 include a Snapdragon 600 series processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of onboard device storage and out-of-the-box Android 7.0 Nougat. The E1 will not be having the option of expandable storage via micro-SD cards.
Nokia is also expected to unveil the Nokia D1C at MWC 2017. The company has also been rumoured to launch a flagship variant named Nokia P with Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM sometime in future. Alleged Nokia P has been tipped to feature a 23-megapixel camera setup.
There is no word on the availability of the device as of yet but if Nokia does decide to unveil the smartphone at the forthcoming CES 2017, there might be a very big chance that the E1 will be rolled out into the mark by February next year.
