Nokia fans, brace yourselves! With the company recently teasing an upcoming product on its official Twitter and Facebook accounts, it seems like finally we have the device. Apparently, it's a new Android tablet called the Nokia N1, and looks very much like the iPad mini tablet.
With the new tablet out in the open, Nokia is currently planning to sell it as a reference design to OEM partners who will then be able to use the brand by paying royalty. Well, it's a start, after the entire Microsoft deal ended not long ago.
The Nokia N1 tablet sports a 7.9-inch IPS display(2048x1536p) with LED backlight. The tablet's fully-laminated zero air-gap display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It is also powered by a 2.3GHz Intel Z3580 64-bit Atom processor and 2GB RAM.
The tablet comes with 32GB internal storage and a microSD card slot. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nokia Z Launcher running on top. The Nokia N1 tablet sports an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-focus camera. It supports 1080p (full-HD) video recording.
The tablet also comes with a 3.5mm headset jack, Micro-USB 2.0 Type-C reversible connector, while offering Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options. The tablet has a 5300mAh battery. It also offers advanced audio capabilities including stereo speakers and High Quality Discrete Audio Codec, Wolfson WM8958E chip and independent audio codec.
The N1 is currently planned to be available for purchase in China in Q1 2015 for an estimated $249 without taxes. The company also intends to expand sales to other markets following the initial launch.
