A rumor is doing rounds and has been posted by various tech sites. Above image has been posted and is claimed to reveal the next Android device from new Nokia after Nokia N1. The image reveals the name of the device to be “Nokia C1” and while the image, the device shown in the image and even the name Nokia C1 don’t sound not outrageous, the claim by the source that this device will come before 2016 certainly is.
