The rumored C1 could carry USB Type-C and an ultra-slim profile with a supposed 2016 launch date.

As we reported earlier last week, specifications and renders of the flagship Nokia C1 smartphone have leaked. Nokia exited the smartphone market in 2013 with the sale of its mobile division to Microsoft, but the manufacturer will officially re-enter the market by next year. While the manufacturer has yet to announce any details on what its comeback smartphone may be, the C1 is expected to be Nokia's first step back into the business.

When the Nokia N1 tablet was making headlines last year, there were also rumors of smartphone render images and new design drafts suggesting that Nokia would eventually launch a new smartphone. Today's render leaks come from a Chinese social media source and appear to be the same design and chassis as the leaks from last week. This time, however, the edges of the smartphone show a USB Type-C port alongside the pre-requisite 3.5 mm audio port on top. The rounded edges have an iPhone appearance including its matte back and surfaces.

Whether or not these are official designs from Nokia remain to be seen. The Nokia C1 is expected to come in 5- and 5.5-inch variants with FHD displays and both Android and Windows 10 options.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
