There’s been no shortage of Nokia concept phones lately, quite the contrary actually, as we’ve been treated to an avalanche of such models. Today we come across the Nokia 12 concept phone, rendered by David Quijada, a designer with a long standing tradition of renders we covered.

The device is a tribute to the classic Nokia design, including the likes of Nokia 6111, Nokia 6280 and Nokia 3250. The result is a bit controversial, as we’re being treated to a device that would be considered bulky and massive by modern standards. The handset runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, has big bezels and packs a 5 inch OLED screen with Full HD resolution.

There’s Bang & Olufsen acoustics on board, a Snapdragon 821 CPU, 4G LTE, WiFi and NFC. 64 or 128 GB of storage are here, plus a fingerprint scanner. David used an aluminum frame here and included 12 megapixel front camera. We’ve got a 21 megpaixel back camera, a dual LED flash and the edges of the device are slightly sloped, like we saw on the first gen iPads.

Some would say that the bulk of the Nokia 12 is reassuring and solid, while others would prefer a slimmer design. Which one do you like?
