Leaked images and reports about the second phone from HMD Global, the Nokia E1, have set the rumor mills abuzz. By the looks of it, Nokia is gearing up for a grand comeback in 2017, having already released the Nokia 6 into the Chinese market.
According to the leaks, the Nokia E1 is expected to be an entry-level smartphone running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and will boot the same out-of-the-box.
Catering to the affordable smartphone market, the phone is expected to be powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor alongside 2GB of RAM and Adreno 308 GPU.
The E1 will reportedly feature a screen size of about 5.2/5.3-inch and a screen resolution of 720×1080 pixels, if a report by an anonymous NokiaPowerUser is anything to go by.
Coming to the optics, leaked reports suggest that the Nokia E1 will have a 13MP primary camera along with an 5MP front camera. It is also expected to have an internal storage capacity of 16GB.
The Finnish company HMD Global, which gained the rights to develop smartphones under the Nokia brand, is apparently leaving no stone unturned in reviving the Nokia brand name and is expected to launch as many as six new models this year.
Though people are relying on leaked reports, photographs and sketches to make sense of the situation as of now, the company is yet to confirm the same. There’s no word yet about its price or availability although grapevine suggests it would be unveiled at the Mobile World Conference (MWC) later next month.
