The Nokia contract with Microsoft is going to end this year Dec 2016. Nokia C1 Android phone may be the first smartphone going to launch in 2017.
We don’t know exact release date in Pakistan, but it will be in the first quart of the year 2017.
There are many reports which tell that the four new phones are going to lunch in this coming year. While Nokia won’t make them, they will be designed and branded by the firm, and are likely to be a mixture of basic and more complex devices.Let’s have a look the Pic one of Nokia phone D1C Render below.
Nokia took a gamble and got worried with Microsoft on the Windows Phone project, a significant risk which ultimately did not repay and ended in Microsoft buying up Nokia’s cellphone department, as well as the one of a kind rights to provide gadgets beneath the Nokia emblem…until now, that is.
Microsoft’s CEO of its Asia-Pacific branch, James Rutherfoord, has gone on the record saying HMD Global – the firm which has acquired the rights to sell Nokia phones and is teaming up with Nokia itself – will launch multiple devices in 2016 and 2017.
We haven’t any doubt that Nokia was the biggest mobile company before the window brings. It was the number one in Pakistan.
We don’t need to go back to the history of Nokia. If you are mobile users, then you should see that the popularity of Nokia phone from 3310 model till the Symbian OS series.
But due to contract with Microsoft and bring window phone, it goes way behind and takes much of loose.
Nokia Brand’s Back to Smartphones
As of November 21, Nokia itself has released details confirming its plans to release new smartphone devices in 2017.
Nokia gave a presentation to investors at a Capital Markets Day event and a PDF file is now host on the firm’s webpage which includes the slides for that presentation.
Amongst the slides, there is a roadmap for 2016-2018. For 2016 we can see Nokia’s recent acquisition of health tech firm Withings, “brand & patent licenses” under HMD, license agreement expansion with Samsung, and the company’s OZO VR Camera.
It’s true that the Nokia is planning a smartphone revival in 2017 and it’s now official. However, the news doesn’t change the fact that the revival of the Nokia brand will still be a licensing partnership under the guidance of HMD, rather than Nokia producing the phones outright as it used to.
