Nokia smartphones to be unveiled at MWC 2017
Nokia, the legendary brand known for its mobile phones several years ago, is returning to the smartphone business next year. We've already reported on the matter a few days ago, as a few presentation slides confirmed Nokia's planned comeback to smartphones industry is scheduled for 2017.
Today, we have a new and exciting piece of information for Nokia fans. The Finnish company will announce its first smartphones in the long while at Mobile World Congress 2017.
HMD Global, the company that now owns the license to launch Nokia phones for the next 10 years has confirmed its presence at the trade fair, which is scheduled to kick off on February 27.
The only logical reason that HMD has to attend MWC 2017 would be if it's going to showcase some mobile phones, and since the company is now focusing on developing Nokia smartphones, we expect them to be unveiled at the event.
The only thing that remains to be determined is how many smartphones HMD Global and Nokia plan to announce in Q1 2017 and when exactly they will be available on the market.
We only have information about one Nokia-branded smartphone, the long-rumored D1C, which is supposed to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard.
Nokia D1C is a mid-range smartphone powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory.
It's also rumored to sport a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, as well as an impressive 16-megapixel rear-facing camera.
