Seems like the Finnish smartphone legend, Nokia, don’t want to quit after rumors broke that it is coming back to the smartphone game again after the infamous April 2014 deal where Microsoft purchased its mobile division. Recently, GeekBench, a popular benchmarking tool for all platforms, leaked fresh images of the rumored Nokia D1C smartphone, giving us a glimpse of what the smartphone looks like.
But here is the catch. Is it really a leaked image or a photoshopped one? We are not going in any argument but here are some facts that led us to think twice before spreading news:
- Those who follow tech news, they always see images of the product that is being discussed in a particular article and you can very well understand it’s an original one. But have a close look at this home button section.
- The NOKIA logo. Since when NOKIA changed their logo?
- Take a look at this series of 3 pictures of D1C. The last 2 designs clearly indicate one thing: the colors are changed in a photo editor. Not only that, there is a variation in home button between pic 1, and pic 2 and 3! Look at the size of NOKIA logo at the back!
Plus, which one is the premium version? If it is gold, then is the sparking shaped thing the fingerprint scanner? Fine, but can you expect premium version come with such home button?
Alternately, if the black and white are premium design, then where is the fingerprint scanner?
Confusion! Confusion! Confusion!
So we really shouldn’t call these “leaked” images. Hence, can’t we come to the conclusion that these might not be the design of D1C phone? What are your views? Share this article if you think we are right!
Once again, we would like to clarify that this is not a fight or any kind of insult to GeekBench. We always share tech news that is true and don’t support fake news. It’s just a discussion. We really don’t appreciate articles which mislead people.
Before ending, here are the rumored specifications of the D1C smartphone:
- (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display
- Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 ( 4 x 1.2 GHz Cortex A53 + 4 x 1.5 GHz Cortex A53) 64-bit processor with Adreno 505 GPU
- 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, expandable memory up to 128GB with microSD

- Fingerprint sensor (premium version)
- 13MP rear camera with LED Flash
- 8MP front-facing camera
- 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS
If the rumor turns out to be true, the alleged Nokia D1C will come in two version — basic and premium variant (as pointed out earlier). While the basic version of the smartphone is expected to come in metal Frame and polycarbonate body, the premium variant might come in all metal unibody design along with fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button. It is expected to hit the market in Q1 2017.
