Nokia setting up a come-back with new smartphones for Q4 2016?

Nokia’s intended revival in the not too distant future has been the talking point in most recent times, the company’s marketing chief has been recently insisting that Nokia will “rise again”. Nokia’s executive; Mike Wang, president of the joint management team in China, has confirmed that 3 or probably 4 new Nokia-branded Android smart phones are set to be unveil in the fourth quarter of 2016, these devices will be split between new smartphone and tablet launches but all will be based on the Android operating system.

 

While we still expect the company to make an announcement or two before the end of 2016, the actual launch of this devices could be delayed into early 2017, depending on testing and development. HMD, the Finnish company –made up of ex-Nokia and ex-Microsoft employees — that snagged the licensing rights to the brand earlier this year will be the ones designing these new Nokia handsets, which will then be manufactured by Foxconn.

The company has been quite stealth when it comes to the specifications of its upcoming smartphones and tablets and their targeted price range. However, a rumor that appeared earlier this year suggests that Nokia is planning two premium phones, which will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat.

The Nokia smartphones are reported to feature 5.2 and 5.5-inch QHD OLED displays, a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 22.6MP camera, and a metal body with water and dust resistance.

Along with high-end smartphones, HMD is expected to unveil two new Nokia feature phones in the next 6 months. Nokia also completed a $191 million acquisition of Withings in May, opening up an avenue into the connected halth market, its not hard to see Nokia is really working to get itself back into the smartphone game, are you excited to see what the company has to offer after all this time?
