HMD Global has officially announced 3 new Nokia smartphones in Malaysia. In case you didn’t know, HMD Global is a new startup based in Finland and they have a 10-year licensing agreement to produce Nokia branded phones.
Oh, and there’s also information on the Nokia 3310‘s local pricing too.
Perhaps one of the most anticipated events at the Mobile World Congress 2017 is Nokia’s. Yes, Nokia, the company that once ruled the mobile phone market. Well, they’re back and they brought with them a whole bunch of nostalgia.
Once a great giant, Nokia is making a comeback in 2017 through HMD Global. After introducing a feature phone last month, the Finnish brand has finally introduced a new smartphone that runs on Android with the Nokia 6.
Nokia is back and they will be introducing their new smartphones in 2017. The iconic mobile company was acquired by Microsoft in 2014 and eventually the name was taken off from its Lumia smartphone lineup in favour of Microsoft.
Along the way, the parent Nokia company had tried to re-enter the device business by introducing the Nokia N1 tablet. There were rumours that Nokia would eventually introduce a smartphone but that didn’t happen.
Nokia has just announced that they will be returning to the smartphone market come next year, despite repeatedly denying that they will be making a comeback.
Brand CEO Rajeev Suri states that they will be finding suitable partners to help produce the devices and they will be using the same strategy that they used for their N1 tablet to get back into the market. Basically what they will be doing is they will design the new products but won’t actually be making the products themselves despite having their branding.
