Nokia C1 leaks

Nokia C1 leaks

Under the terms of its buyout from Microsoft, Nokia can't make smartphones bearing its name until next year. But well ahead of time, we've got a look at what could be the phone-maker's comeback effort, the Nokia C1.

Renders of it have leaked before, but this is the first look at the real thing. It's said to run the same Z Launcher skin as Nokia's N1 tablet over the top of Android, though there's no word on which version. We're guessing 5.0 Lollipop at the least, if not 6.0 Marshmallow.

There's no concrete idea of specs, but rumours indicate it'll sport a five-inch screen – no word on resolution, sadly – with an eight-megapixel main shooter and 5-megapixel front-facer. 2GB of RAM is thought to be under the bonnet too.

All of which would make it a mid-range effort, rather than a true rival to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6.

There's no word on a release date. But considering leaks like this usually suggest a phone is weeks or even days from being made official, we think it'll probably launch before Christmas. It's likely to go on sale in the first three months of next year.

Microsoft completed acquisition of Nokia's phone division last spring, and has continued to produce the firm's Lumia line of smartphones.
