Nokia WILL Return in 2017 With Two New Android Phones: Specs, Hardware & Release Date Rumours

Nokia will be introducing its new smartphones by the end of 2016 and early 2017, according James Rutherford, Microsoft CEO (APAC) who was quoted in a Vietnamese publication. The rumours also suggest that there will be “two new phone products in the last quarter of 2016 and at least two smartphones in the early second quarter 2017” by HMD.

Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri’s MWC 2017 keynote is also suggestive of this development and it is being speculated that Suri will be announcing the launch of the smartphones at the upcoming MWC. There are leaked images which hint at Nokia featuring Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor.

The new Nokia smartphones will be made by a Foxconn subsidiary, FIH Mobile which is where the Finnish element will part ways from the new Nokia phones but it comes as a relief that HMD will be following Nokia’s design guidelines.

However, HMD is funded by Smart Connect LP and includes two Nokia executives namely Arto Nummela and Florian Seiche, both of them who now work for Microsoft which is why one can say that Nokia and Microsoft are not really ‘separated’ as we think.
Rajeev Suri’s announcement at the MWC 2017 could also be related to Nokia Networks. As far as the Nokia Technologies is concerned, Nokia OZO 360 degree camera is the only hope so far from the Finnish company in the devices segment.

When Microsoft got charge of Nokia in 2013, it used the opportunity to promote its Windows Phone software, which didn’t really work out well for the company. Despite the design and quality of the devices being good, the phone failed to make an impact among users.

One of the factors responsible for the Nokia’s downfall in the devices segment was its aversion to evolve in terms of software development.
