Over the past weeks, the rumors about Nokia’s final return on the smartphone market kept coming, culminating with the news that they should reveal a first Android-powered handset during CES 2017.
However, we have something even better than this! According to Android Headlines, images with the presumed sketches of the Nokia D1 and E1 made the rounds online this weekend, giving us the chance to take a quick glimpse at what we should expect to see next year.
Of course, we don’t know if the two images are genuine, but they’re still better than nothing!
Curved display and top features, not bad!
So, to start, it seems that the Nokia D1 will feature a fingerprint scanner on the front, hidden under the oval-shaped home button, something that the E1 won’t have, while the sides look a bit curved.
The Nokia branding is placed in the upper right corner of the devices, while the source mentions that all phones released under the Finnish manufacturer’s brand will be available in both 5 and 5.5″ variants. Of course, we’re not sure if this means that the Nokia D1 will be available in two variants, or the D1 will have a 5″ display, while the E1 will come with a 5.5″ one. Only time can tell.
Still, they’re not actually Nokias…
HMD Global is the company who has the rights to manufacture Nokia phones for the next 10 years, after purchasing them from Microphones, while the actual manufacturer will be Foxconn.
For the moment, this is pretty much everything we know about these first Nokia smartphones, but we’re absolutely convinced that more and more details will be available throughout the next days, at least until CES 2017 opens its gates.
