Upcoming Nokia C1 smartphone which has been rumored about since last year, has surfaced in a new render image on the internet.

Information regarding the handset up to this moment had pointed out that it will run on an Android Operating System with the company’s Z Launcher.

However a new render shows the smartphone running Windows 10 OS as well – tipping that it could be offered in two variants for the two operating systems.

The leaked image render for the Nokia C1 shows the handset in White, Gold, Pink, and Grey colour variants alongside two more units.

While the unit in foreground is seen running the Nokia Z Launcher for Android, the one in the background (right side) is seen running Windows 10 Mobile.

The source of the leak, (via Nokiapoweruser) said that the handset will arrive in both OS versions.

It is worthy to note that a leaked image from September showed the smartphone’s rear camera at the centre, while the latest render shows it placed on the top-left corner.

Nokia is yet to say anything on the matter.

Going by what’s been said before, the Nokia C1 is tipped to come in a 5-inch FHD display, sport an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera.

Reports suggested that the Nokia C1 will be powered by an Intel chipset and feature 2GB of RAM. It was also expected to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow as well.

Nokia, once at the top end of the mobile handset market, lost its dominance with the rise of Apple and Android smartphones. The company’s fall was facilitated by its decision to stick with Windows Phone OS instead of migrating to Google’s Android.

Earlier in 2015, Nokia announced that it will get back in the smartphone business by licensing designs to hardware manufacturers.

However the company can’t use its brand on smartphones until the fourth quarter of 2016 because of the acquisition of its devices and services division by Microsoft.
