Nokia says 'save the date' February 26th, new Android phones likely coming


Nokia, the brand that many have grown up with, is about to make its big comeback soon.

Nokia has already unveiled its Android first phone, the Nokia 6, in China, but if you are waiting for something new from Nokia that could actually be available in more markets, you should mark February 26th on your calendars. Nokia has officially said on its Facebook page that it will new announcements then.

February 26th happens to be the day before Mobile World Congress 2017, the world's biggest mobile expo, and it will be the time when we expect to hear about new flagships from the world's biggest phone makers like LG and possibly Samsung.

Nokia obviously is not afraid to unveil its own phone on the very same date.

There are no further details about the expected phone itself, but customers definitely expect more from Nokia than the mid-ranger Nokia 6. The company has promised to unveil some 5 to 6 new phones this year, and it is expected to have a high-end phone among them as well.

PhoneArena will - of course - be at MWC 2017, and we will bring you all the newest information from the showroom floor.

Bring it on, Nokia! Give us excellent mid-ranged and flagship handsets with amazing build quality and availability the world over, and make sure that they give us excellent bang for our buck.

"And make sure that they give us excellent bang for our buck". Bang for our buck, eh? I'm sure they won't be able to cut Xiaomi Prices... Which, BTW, is selling a Snapdragon 430 totting smartphone for just a tad over $100... Same Snappy you may find in this Nokia "Six"... Nokia ought to watch its "six"... And I'm not talking about the smartphone, lads... It's no longer 2005...

Dude, take your crap elsewhere. At the very least, respond to someone else. I have ZERO desire to converse with you.

Ah... So you consider yourself obliged to respond to every single comment to your post...? Is that so...? I see... My bad, mate... I thought you're a 'normal' being... G'Day!

Point out where, exactly, in this comments section that I responded to every single comment to my post. Don't worry, I'll wait....*insert hour glass emoji here* And I know you're not normal. Nothing wrong with that, but you're kind of "not normal" I'll happily do without.

"Nokia ALSO CONFIRMS THAT NOKIA 6 IS A CHINA-EXCLUSIVE PHONE" Well, that confirms Nokia is not the Finnish company anymore.

That's something they didn't change since from the Lumia era.

Nothing wrong with a Snapdragon 430 Octa Core around the $250 mark... Samsung, for example, is selling its Galaxy J5 (2016) for $260, and guess what, it has a Snapdragon 410 Quad-Core on board with just 2GB of RAM... And forget about Gorilla Glass, FHD Display and metallic chassis... I love Samsung... No doubt about it, but that doesn't stop me from criticizing its ridiculous price tags... I'm a Fan, yes... A Fanboy, no... Thing is, criticism isn't necessarily a sign of hatred... G'Day!

What this have to do with Nokia not being a Finish company?!!. Since many years Nokia used to release Chinese exclusive Symbian phones variants. Please stop spreading trash!

Exactly. Nokia has always released variants of their handsets exclusive to China, since the Symbian era. This is nothing new. They'll release variants available internationally as well. +1

Here's hoping Nokia do something innovative with Android instead of just skinning it and calling it a day. What the world doesn't need is yet boring Android OEM, we need more Apple like companies.

Last thing we need is another bring Apple like company. Pixel can take that space. I want innovation and compelling reasons to choose Nokia over Samsung or its irrelevant to me. Don't even care about price if the specs are top end.

Sorry for the duplication. In this day and age, there should be an easy way to edit posts.

I dont think you can compare Nokia with Apple. Nokia will have a big portfolio of dumphones, low end androids, middle and possible some flagship devices. So I suppose the biggest competition for them will be from Huawei, Samsung etc.. If you like and are "locked" in in the iOS ecosystem you not switch to android so easily. But Apple most of course produce top end products so people will stay with iPhone in the future to.
