Nokia is garnering a lot of support before releasing its new Android phones in 2017. More and more leaks are surfacing on the Internet though it is difficult to know how much of it is true. The Nokia Android phones are a way for the company to make a comeback in the smartphone market. The company has already tipped about showcasing two phones at MWC 2017. Leaks have revealed a midrange and a flagship model.

According to Gadgets 360, leaked concept drawings and live images of at least two more midrange smartphones have hit the internet. The first set of images leaked could be of a model known as Nokia E1 though it could also be the midrange Nokia D1C that everybody is talking about. The images were leaked by a Chinese tipster that was then subsequently reported by The Android Soul. This could be one of the Nokia Android phones though the name shows E1.

Another set of images show the front of an alleged 5.2-inch Nokia Android phone that is expected to launch in February 2017. It could be a budget phone as reported by PlayfulDroid! Meanwhile, the Nokia E1 handset is expected to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. It will be reportedly powered by a 4GB RAM and a Snapdragon 600 chipset. It may also have 64GB internal storage.

Two concept images of a top-end phone and a midrange phone have also been shared. The premium Nokia Android phone is seen to have a fingerprint scanner on the Home button. Among the various Nokia Android phones leaked images, the Nokia D1C is said to be released early in January at the CES. There are also rumours that Nokia will release a flagship variant, Nokia P1 with 23MP rear camera and Carl Zeiss lens.
