Nokia is a very well-known Finland-based company, and even though they've been having all sorts of issues in recent years, people still know who they are. Nokia was once the number one cellphone manufacturer in the world, but they've made a number of poor business choices along the way, one of which was an exclusivity agreement with Microsoft. This ultimately made the company's sales go south, and they were forced to sell their Devices and Services business to Microsoft.
Since then, Nokia has managed to release an Android-powered tablet, the Nokia N1, which was well received, but wasn't exactly available all around the globe. Nokia has mostly focused their sales to China, and international users didn't really accept that with open arms. Nokia has recently acquired Alcatel-Lucent, and has sold off their Nokia HERE Maps business to a number of automobile manufacturing companies. That being said, Nokia has also confirmed recently that they're planning to release a smartphone, but they didn't exactly give us a timeframe for that release. We didn't exactly see any leaks since then, but a number of concept images surfaced about two months ago. Unfortunately, those images don't really reveal the design of this phone, we'll have to wait for some actual leaks to surface.
That being said, let's take a look at the rumored specs for the Nokia C9, shall we. According to the source, the Nokia C9 will sport a metal frame, and will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor. The 21-megapixel shooter will, allegedly, going to be located on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be available up front. The phone will ship with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of internal storage. The battery will be removable, and the phone is going to cost around 2,999 Yuan ($461), if this leak is accurate, of course. Android version hasn't been mentioned in this leak, unfortunately. Now, take this info with a grain of salt, as it's usually the case with such rumors. We cannot confirm, or deny these specs, but they don't seem that unrealistic. At this point we can only wait for Nokia to release more info, which we hope will happen soon enough, stay tuned.
