Shortly after the official release of Nokia 6, leaks about the next Nokia-branded smartphone are already doing the rounds on the internet. HMD Global, which will be handling the sales and marketing of Nokia-branded smartphones for the coming decade, had announced while launching the first Nokia-Android smartphone that it will be soon releasing more smartphones in 2017.

According to a report on NokiaPowerUser, the smartphone has received China s Compulsory Certification (3C) and will go by the Nokia E1 moniker.

The Nokia E1 is speculated to come with a display size of either 5.2 or 5.3-inch offering 720p HD resolution. With a pocket-friendly price tag, it will house a 1.4GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor paired with Adreno 308 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It will further come with 16 GB of internal storage.

In the photography department, the Nokia E1 is expected to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies and video calling. On the software front, it will run the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. ALSO READ: Nokia Viki to take on Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant

The Snapdragon 425 SoC is one of the newer chipsets released by Qualcomm earlier last year which promises better performance and efficiency. The SoC has been built on 28nm fabrication process and with a Cortex-A53 quad-core processor. While the display support is capped at 1,280x800pixels (60fps) and camera resolution up to 16-megapixel, it has maximum video recording support up to 1080p. Furthermore, with the use of older Cat. 4 X6 modem, it can achieve maximum download and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps and 75Mbps respectively. The Snapdragon 425 chipset also gets support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Quick Charge 2.0. Although there are no further details about the battery capacity on the Nokia E1, the use of Snapdragon 425 SoC suggests that it would nonetheless offer fast charging.

While we know that HMD Global will be releasing its first set of Nokia-branded Android smartphones in 2017, there is no official clarity about the timeline of the comeback smartphones. If rumors are to be believed, the Nokia E1 could be teased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain which is scheduled to take place from February 27 and go on till March 2. The Nokia E1 could be accompanied by a number of other Nokia-branded smartphones, including the Nokia C1 and Nokia D1, which are projected for this year s release. Additionally, the company is also said to be working on its own AI-assistant called Viki which is aimed to take on Microsoft s Cortana, Apple s Siri, and the Google Assistant.
