New Nokia Smartphones Coming In
Nokia may have taken a big break in the smartphone industry but it looks like the mobile phone pioneer is all prepped up for its comeback. Apparently, Nokia's non-competition agreement with Microsoft is about to end this year. If you might not remember, Microsoft bought Nokia's Lumia division and it included a non-competition agreement. Now, the maker of the well-loved n3310 is about to re-enter the market with a new set of smartphones.
Nokia Androids About To Come In
Not a lot of details have been confirmed about the said Nokia smartphones. The only thing that its licensed owner has confirmed is that they will run Android. There have been rumors about a Nokia device that come with the name D1C, but it hasn't been confirmed yet. Fans should just wait a few more months to get official details from the company itself. Phone Arena says that HMD Global, the company licensed to carry Nokia's name, will be in the MWC Congress next year (starting late February). This means that Nokia phones could highly likely show up there as well.
HMD Global To Handle The Nokia Brand
GSM Arena says that HMD Global now has a ten-year exclusive agreement to use the Nokia brand on its mobile phones. If you feel worried about new people handling the classic Nokia name, know that HMD Global is still headed by some of Nokia's former executives. HMD Global's CEO, CPO and President were all part of Nokia. With that said, it's quite exciting to imagine what the company has in store for its fans next year.
Hopefully, Nokia can re-enter the smartphone industry with a bang. Also, it would be nice to see the well-loved company join and reign the mobile phone industry once again. This actually isn't that impossible to happen. Take note that the manufacturing of the next Nokia phones will be taken care of by Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that Apple likewise hires for their iPhones.
