Nokia making a comeback isn’t the question of if, but a question of when and with more and more leaks the answer to that when could be ‘soon’. Reports have surfaced on the web claiming that a certain smartphone with model number TA-1000 has passed the China Compulsory Certification (3C) and this is the highly rumoured Nokia E1.
While the certification information doesn’t reveal a great deal about the smartphone, there are those who link the TA-1000 to Nokia and claim that it is the Nokia E1 smartphone. The 3C listing confirms that the Nokia TA-1000 comes with 5V/2A charging support, which means that the specific smartphone does not support fast charging – which is the reason for the Nokia E1, as that is tipped to be a mid-range device.
The Nokia E1 has further been tipped to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. The mid-range device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 600 series processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. The base option for internal storage on the phone is expected to be 64GB. It’s worth stressing that all of this information is based on leaks, and should be taken very lightly.
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.
Out of the five, four new models will have display sizes ranging from 5 inches to 5.7 inches, at QHD or full-HD resolutions. LG Display, Century Technology (CTC), and Innolux will be supplying the panels for the upcoming phones with FIH Mobile serving as production partner.
