We have been hearing a lot about the Nokia's comeback plans in recent times and the last two weeks or so, a new Nokia-powered Android smartphone (our assumption) spotted on a couple of benchmark sites revealing most of the specifications.
All these days, we just had the hardware specs, but now the latest listing on reliable benchmark site, GFXBench, shows that the device is indeed an Android-powered tablet; and not a smartphone.
If this happens, this will be the Nokia's second Android-based tablet. The first one was the last year's Nokia N1, which failed to appeal the masses. Let's take a quick look at what the Nokia D1C will offer when it comes out later this year.
A Massive 13.8-inch Screen!
As said earlier, the Nokia D1C is not a smartphone, as per the benchmark listing. The device will feature a huge 13.8-inch 1080p screen.
Powered by Entry-level Snapdragon 430
On par with the earlier leaks, the Nokia D1C will be equipped with the latest entry-level Snapdragon 430 chipset, which was first used on the Xiaomi Redmi 3s. The chipset has eight cores with all the cores clocked at 1.4GHz.
3GB of RAM and 16GB of Internal Storage
The device will feature 3GB of RAM to handle the system intensive tasks, and the onboard storage is limited to 16GB. According to the listing, the actual storage available to the user will be just 9GB.
16MP Rear Camera and 8MP Front Camera
This feature is quite surprising. Nokia might pack a 16MP camera on the back of the tablet, which can record videos at 1080p resolution. There will be an 8MP front-facing camera, which can also record videos at 1080p resolution.
In-line with the earlier leaks, this GFXBench listing also shows that Android Nougat out-of-the-box will power the tablet.
As of now, there are no words on the official release date of the device, but two months back, a Nokia executive stated that the smartphones are pegged to launch by the end of this year. Along with this tablet, Nokia is also planning to launch two smartphones with a 2K display and high-end hardware.
