If you were born in the 90’s, you must be aware of the most famous of all ‘the Nokia’s iconic phones’. It all in all dominated the whole market before the smart-phones took over the space. Before the modern phones came up, Nokia with other key producers manufactured some really popular phones which are still being used by few.
Well with the era of smart-phones, all earlier mobile brands including Nokia and Motorola took a back seat for a while. Moreover, the emergence of apple and Samsung with other major mobile brands, it became quite difficult for Nokia to cope up with the growing competition.
The likes of Nokia came down to a very low level. Nokia tried gambling and got paired with the Microsoft to produce windows phone but that clearly did not work out. The result was the buying of the Nokia’s smart-phone division by Microsoft.
Now, the announcement made about the address of Nokia’s CEO- Rajeev Suri at the MWC 2017 helped ignite the already set rumors about the re-launch. HMD global is also wiring up with Nokia to sell multiple devices in the coming months. So we can probably see the much awaited Nokia Smartphones in 2017.
What to expect:
The Nokia lovers have really high hopes from the company. Believe it or not, the company was incredible back then and hopefully we will have a great future with Nokia coming back into the market. As per the details published on a Chinese Weibo social network, this much anticipated phone is thought to have a QHD display, potentially two variants with 5.2 inch and 5.5 inch display. Waterproof metal body doubled with Carl Zeiss camera optics. The processor is supposed to be Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.
Possibly three phones are expected to be released. Two out of the three will be the flagship phones with high-end features while the other will be a cheaper one being a mid-range model. Nokia’s back in the war. The phones will be android no doubt and windows will be released in selected markets only. Camera will probably be 22 MP installed with the most sensitive sensors ever. We will receive two variants -2 GB and 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB or 64 GB of memory respectively.
What is happening:
Earlier in the Article we mentioned a name ‘HMD’. This is basically a focused and independent home for every type of range of Nokia. HMD has conditionally acquired the rights of Nokia from Microsoft to use the brand on feature phones. Certain design rights have also been approved. The company is expected to invest about $500 million in the global marketing of Nokia Smartphones and tablets.
The main problem with Nokia was its slow pace or it can be articulated that the competitors moved too fast. The company got caught in the middle of ios and android. Having Nokia was a legacy back then and the positive vibes with the re-launch announcement are high. Hopefully, we will get what we had years back.
