Microsoft official confirms two Nokia Android smartphones arriving in early Q2 2017

12

It might sound strange but despite the fact that it didn't produced smartphones for quite some time, Nokia remains in the hearts and minds of many of its fans. After Nokia's mobile division was acquired by Microsoft, the company risked everything on Windows Phone, which proved to be a lost bet.

However, what remained from the big company that ruled the mobile industry for many years in the past, is now expected to enter the smartphone business. Having already released an Android tablet, the N1, Nokia has decided against operating like a standard handset manufacturer.

The Finnish company has already given the commercial rights to build Nokia phones to HMD Global, which is expected to launch a few handsets in 2016.

The CEO of mobile device commodities of Microsoft Asia, James Rutherfoord was quoted in the Vietnamese media saying that HMD Global plans to launch two new phones in Q4 2016 and at least two smartphones in early Q2 2017.

Nokia recently confirmed its presence at Mobile World Congress 2017, but it's unlikely that the company will unveil any smartphones at the trade fair.

It's almost a certainty that Nokia branded phones will be launched in the coming months, so the only thing that we'll have to determine is the timing of their release.

Previous reports highlighted some of the hardware that unannounced Nokia devices could employ under the hood, but these will remain rumors until an official announcement confirms them. Are you excited for a new Nokia branded smartphone?
