Up to 7 Nokia Android smartphones could be released this year
If you're excited at the thought that four Nokia-branded Android smartphones could hit the market throughout 2017, hear this: we might actually see 6 or 7 Nokia Android handsets before the end of the year.
The slide that we're seeing in the photo embedded above was revealed during a recent presentation held by Avaxx, an authorized Nokia/Microsoft distributor in Malaysia. According to this slide, new Nokia Android phones will be released "by Q2 2017", with "a total of 6-7 models" coming before the end of the year, from low-end to mid-range and high-end options.
As previously reported, one of the first upcoming Nokia smartphones could be the Nokia D1C, a mid-range device with a 1080p screen and Android 7 Nougat (in fact, all 2017 Nokia smartphones should run near-stock Android Nougat out of the box).
While it may be true that 6-7 Nokia Android phones will be launched in Malaysia this year, for now, we don't know how many Android-based Nokia phones are expected to be available in the US (if any at all). In any case, we're hoping to hear more on this at MWC 2017 next month, when HMD and Nokia should announce at least one of their Android handsets.
