After the rumor regarding Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri’s attendance at the Mobile World Congress 2017, the Microsoft for Pacific Asia CEO James Rutherfoord revealed that HMD Global, that company that purchased Microsoft will use the Nokia brand rights and will work with the Finnish company to launch new products.
According to a series of disclosures published in a Vietnamese tabloid, by the end of this year, Nokia will launch two new mobile devices. More exactly, the launching will take place next spring and it will feature two models.
According to the Vietnamese press, the two models were classified as the entry-level range.
Following the same source, FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn suggested that the devices will be produced in China, relying on the awareness and success of Nokia. We’ll have to see whether the new device design will feature the high-level quality characteristic for Nokia in its glory days.
Nokia will launch the new terminals under its own brand. The MWC 2017 conference will open its doors in Barcelona starting on February 27 and it will feature a series of premieres.
Also, the Finnish giant already offered the commercial rights to build Nokia phones to HMD Global, which is expected to launch a few handsets in 2016.
We are really eager to see Nokia’s next move considering that the Windows Phone represented the biggest failure. Nokia’s collapse came after the division was purchased by Microsoft but we all know one thing: the Finnish brand remained in the heart of their fans.
