    This story isn't just a rumor, it qualifies as a "dubious rumor." Despite the lack of credibility, it's interesting enough to catch our attention. What you see above are supposedly leaked images of a new Nokia Android smartphone called the Nokia C1.

    What makes this rumor/leak so questionable is the fact that Nokia swears they have no plans to return to the smartphone world. Of course, if they want to keep it a surprise, then they could be lying. Either way, we will leave it up to you guys to speculate on the viability of the above images.

    You can also speculate on these included leaked specs for the device:
    • 5-inch, 1080p display.
    • Intel Atom chip
    • 2GB of RAM
    • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
    What do you folks think? Is this thing for real, or just a flightless bird?

    According to this article on The Verge (http://www.theverge.com/2015/9/8/9275071/nokia-c1-android-smartphone-leak),



    Although, I'd be game to give a decent Nokia android phone a fighting chance, this one wouldn't do it for me, even if it was real.

    Yeah... I figured we would quickly find something to discredit it, which is why I called it a "dubious rumor." :)

    How many of you have owned a Nokia phone in the past? I've owned a couple of Nokia dumb phones many many years ago.

    I had at least 2-3 Nokia dumbphones back in the day. Loved each one in its own right. For my money, they were the place to go if you wanted a "candybar" phone and Moto was the place to go for a flip phone.

    I had multiple of these. Also had one almost identical but had a flip down cover over the keypad just couldn't remember the number on it...

    This was my favorite by far. Think it was also my last Nokia device.

    It can't be true. Rumors. Nokia only has Here map now. It will not come back to cellphone again. Several days ago, my Nokia 520 had something wrong. So I went to the Nokia Help Center. You know what? They didn't repair Nokia any more but HTC! I am very upset.
