Two Nokia Android phones, the mid-range D1C and the flagship P1, could be the company’s way of making a comeback in the smartphone industry. The company has confirmed that it is now a new organisation and that it has embraced the Android platform for launching its mobile phones. The Nokia D1C smartphone is said to be coming in two sizes, either 5 and 5.5-inch or 5.2 and 5.5-inch. It’s not yet confirmed.

The Nokia P1 handset will reportedly be the flagship phone boasting some very enviable specs. According to Gadgets 360, it will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, a mega 6GB RAM and a stunning 23MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens. This information on the Nokia Android phones was first revealed by a Chinese tipster whereas earlier reports had suggested that the Nokia P1 flagship will sport a 2K (QHD) display and a screen size of 5.2 and 5.5 inches.

The P1 handset is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and will sport a metal unibody design with waterproof capabilities. The Nokia D1C is expected to feature a 13/16MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. A full range of Nokia innovations could be coming to the Android phones. The Android Nokia D1C will likely offer 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, Snapdragon 430 chipset, 2/3GB RAM and 16GB storage.

The Nokia Android phones are in a prototype stage, Pocket-lint reports. Most of the information about these two phones is coming from leaks and the authenticity of the leaks is questionable. However, official information on the products is expected during the MWC 2017 that starts on Feb. 27 in Barcelona.

Finnish company HMD Global has acquired exclusive rights to use the Nokia branding. The company recently confirmed that it is bringing the Nokia Android phones in the first half of 2017 and the launch may happen at the MWC 2017.
