Last weekend, we told you that the Nokia D1C had been run through the Geekbench benchmark test. Under the terms of Microsoft’s purchase of Nokia Services and Devices back in 2014 (when the deal closed), Nokia was not allowed to produce a smartphone using the Nokia name until the fourth quarter of 2016. Now that we are in that time frame, it is more than a coincidence that an Android powered, Nokia branded phone was recently benchmarked.
The Geekbench test revealed that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset, and will carry 3GB of RAM. That obviously is just a small peek at the Nokia D1C’s specs. But today, the handset was run through AnTuTu, and that benchmark test has provided us with a much larger look at the phone’s specs.
The AnTuTu run through confirms that the Snapdragon 430 SoC is under the hood, featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. The screen (with a size that is unknown so far) will have a 1080 x 1920 resolution. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of flash memory. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP, and an 8MP camera will appear in front to snap selfies and handle video chats. Android 7.0 will be pre-installed.
Will Nokia also offer a high-end model with its return to smartphones? For that, we will have to wait and see. Right now though, it looks like Nokia has a low-to-mid range model being prepped.
