Nokia D1C leaks: First midrange #Nokia with #Android

Nokia C1 rumour

German blog discovered Nokia D1C Android smartphone in the Geekbench database. The smartphone benchmark results were uploaded yesterday (30th Sep.) and they show a midrange device with Android 7.0 Nougat.

The known specifications are:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (8 x 1,4Ghz)
  • Adreno 505 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • Android 7.0 Naugat 64-bit


Thanks to the CPU, Nokia D1C can have a display with the maximal resolution of 1920×1080 pixels (Full HD) and a main camera with the maximal resolution of 21MP. It is clear that the leaked phone is a midrange device, and not one of the rumored Nougat flagships.

Exciting times are ahead of us. 🙂

    if they can price it under $150 we will have a winner

    • Doubt it will be that cheap but definitely it would be winner with that price. I never saw a phone with Snapdragon 4XX series that cheap. 200$-250$ could be ok price but again, it is great news that Nokia (HMDGlobal) will go with different price classes.

        With the same processor and Fingerprint scanner,13-5 camera and with 4100mah battery Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime launched at $140..So Nokia can easily price it between $150-$180,but if they start over-pricing their devices then that’ll not be good in these Android Era..

        • I understand your point, but don’t think Xiaomi is paying all the royalties that Nokia (HMD) has to pay, so that is why phones for western markets are expensive.

          • Rce

            Yes,i totally agree with it,but personally i think at least this time Nokia should not over-price their products like Lumia days,because in this high-competitive market with so many Chinese brands low-cost handsets ,that won’t help Nokia in long run..

          • Hemedans

            Nokia didnt overprice their products, lumia 520 with krait core was king of budget phone, at that time all android budget phone used to have cortex a5 or cortex a7.

            It was Ms who overprice lumia and use sd 210 and 400 soc which were inferior.

            Not really,in it’s last years Nokia launched Lumia 830 with Snapdragon 400 at around $430..

          • Technically, that was Microsoft. The transaction closed April 24th 2014, Lumia 830 was released around September 2014.

          • Even though I personally would love for Nokia top models to be cheaper than competition, it is not fair to dump the price in regard to what quality will Nokia (HMD) deliver. To be competitive they will have to price phones reasonably, but that is precisely why HMD will offer phones in different price categories. Hope that every model will have something from top model (lets say design and build quality or some other characteristics) that will help sell them. But first we need to see the devices and see how will HMD be organized and what part will Nokia actually have there.

          • Rce

            Yes,that’s the point price reasonably..

        currently king of budget phone is Xiaomi. they have redmi 3s/a with Snapdragon 430 for around $99 to $120.
