Fallen but not forgotten. Mobile giant Nokia is about to attempt to make a comeback next year with new phones. But this time, they’re not repeating the same mistake and will now use Android OS.
The plan has been circulating the internet for a while now, but the company itself confirmed it in a press release. The new Nokias will be now be manufactured by Foxconn subsidiary FIH Mobile and sold by a Finnish company called HMD Global, which will have an exclusive global license for the Nokia brand for the next ten years.
With this, another Android player has emerged in the our large and overpopulated market. There’re no news yet regarding the official device itself but Nokia did launch a new “phones” section on its website. Unofficially, the first Nokia phones in 2017 will be a 5- and a larger 5.5-inch Android with midrange specifications, and they might arrive in time for Mobile World Congress this coming February in Barcelona.
