HMD Global acquired the Nokia brand this year and it’s promising to revive the brand in 2017 by debuting new phones. A new report has surfaced claiming that HMD is planning to release at least four more Android smartphones during the 2Q and 3Q of 2017 after the first model is announced in February.

The four new Android-powered Nokia smartphones will have display sizes ranging from 5 inches up to 5.7 inches with WQHD (1440p) and full HD (1080p) resolution, industry sources told DigiTimes. The displays will be provided by several manufacturers including the likes of LG Century technology and Innolux. If DigiTimes’s report is accurate, HMD will be releasing a total of five Nokia Android smartphones in 2017.

The first model will be announced in February 2017 during the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. This is believed to be the rumored Nokia DIC (D1C) which is said to arrive in two variants: one with a 5-inch display with 2GB of RAM and the another with a 5.5-inch display with 3GB of RAM. The 5-inch Nokia DIC will sell for $150, while the larger 5.5-inch model will cost $200.

Earlier this week, an alleged photo of the Nokia D1C was leaked online showing that the device will come with a fingerprint sensor up front. The fingerprint sensor has been absent on the previously leaked sketches of the smartphone, as pointed out Tech Times.

However, the leaked photo has also been reported as being the Nokia E1 and not the Nokia D1C. This could explain the inclusion of the fingerprint sensor. This is also why it’s important to take these leaked photos with a healthy dose of skepticism.

As for other hardware specifications, the Nokia D1C is expected to be a mid-range device rumored to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chipset. The handset is also said to come with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
