After selling off its mobile division to Microsoft, Nokia aims to enter the smartphone market once again next year. However, the company has not been very vocal about its plans for the return.
Now, a report by technology website Nokia Power User has shed some light on what Nokia’s first smartphone in the second coming — widely expected to be named C1 — may look like. The render provided to the website shows a candybar smartphone that looks quite like iPhone 6S, but with much thinner bezels on the sides.
What’s interesting here is that the Nokia C1 in the rendered images is shown to run on both Android and Windows Phone operating system. This is a surprise since Nokia’s N1 tablet, released last year, is an iPad mini-lookalike but runs Android operating system.
Even Nokia Power User does not seem very convinced about the authenticity of the images, saying “It is not that difficult to create such images if one has some skill.”
Whether Nokia will adopt two operating systems in its return to the mobile market will be revealed in 2016 only, since the company is contractually obligated to not step into the segment till Q4 of next year.
