The Nokia D1C is actually a 13.8" Android tablet, not a phone

Peter, 13 October 2016

Mysterious Nokia D1C Android smartphone spotted… hold on, that’s not right. The D1C is actually a tablet - surprise! Some early specs came from AnTuTu, but that benchmark doesn’t detect screen size.

GFX Bench does, however, and it reported a massive screen - 13.8” with 1080p resolution. This will clearly be an "at home" tablet similar to the Samsung Galaxy View and the Alcatel Xess. Even so it has a SIM card slot.

The Nokia D1C is powered by an entry-level Snapdragon 430 chipset (8x Cortex-A53, Adreno 505) with 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage. On the plus side, it will run Android 7.0 Nougat and will have a good 8MP/1080p selfie camera for all your video chatting needs (plus a 16MP/1080p camera on the back, assuming you can lift the tablet and frame the photo).

The Nokia D1C will be the second Android tablet under the Nokia brand, but we’re still waiting for the Nokia brand to return to smartphones. If you haven’t heard, it is not Nokia-proper that builds these devices, but instead, it's a product of the collaboration between Nokia and Foxconn.
