“Today marks a happy and important day for HMD. Nokia has been one of the most iconic and recognisable phone brands globally for decades. The excitement of re-introducing this much-loved, well-known and trusted brand to smartphone consumers is a responsibility and an ambition that everyone at HMD shares.”
Above were the words of HMD CEO, Arto Nummela when he announced that Nokia would be launching phones – smartphones actually – cum February 2017.
Well, the stipulated time is very fast approaching and now, we have gone past the good thoughts that we would soon have some nokia-branded phones to how much those phones are going to cost us. Would it be as cost as a an iPhone 7 – please don’t take me serious – or as cheap as Nokia phones. You really want to know? Please stay with me.
Currently known as Nokia D1C, the smartphone will be launched in two versions based on the amount of memory and display size. The most expensive of the two variants will cost $200, and it will come with 3GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display.
The cheaper version is rumored to cost just $150, but it will pack just 2GB RAM and a smaller 5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.
Nokia D1C is going to be one of the first Nokia Android Phones to be launched as per this tip. It will be revealed to the world at MWC 2017. Again as claimed in another interview, Nokia Android Phones should be available very soon post their launch.
