After the Galaxy S8 Edge concept, designer Concept Creator has envisioned a brand new Nokia smartphone, the Nokia C1. This name isn’t new and the idea also isn’t new, since we’ve been waiting for this model, ever since Nokia was said to resurge. Now let’s see what a flagship Nokia of 2017 should look like.

The device adopts a rectangular format and its camera area totally feels like a piece of the Lumia legacy. We get a dual camera this time, something that was never achieved within the Pureview range. The module involves a 12 plus 16 megapixel sensor and  Xenon flash. The device also has dual front speakers and a pretty solid and beefy metal chassis.

There’s a Snapdragon 830 CPU inside, 4 GB of RAM and a 5 inch Full HD screen, plus USB Type C connectivity. The OS is Android 7.1.1 and we also get up to 128 GB of storage and aside from Xenon flash there’s a triple LED flash. I know that the temptation is to say that this design feels outdated, massive, bulky or ugly, but if the build is premium, well done and the camera is fantastic, I think people will give aesthetics a pass.

    I dunno if you can call a 5″ phone ‘massive’, but I personally LOVE the size and shape of this phone. The bulk is useful in the hand and allows for a bigger battery. Bring back fat phones!
