Updated – 15 May 2020 – The Nokia 1.3, 5.3, 6.3, Nokia 8.2, and Nokia 9.3 are the latest upcoming phones from the brand that are going to launch soon.
The resurgence of Nokia – Upcoming Phones 2020
The Finnish tech giant is on the verge of a resurgence. All hell broke loose in 2010 when the legendary firm began to lose it’s grip on the business and was dwarfed by rivals.
And finally, in the year 2014, Microsoft bought the rights to sell Nokia Branded phones, for the next ten years.
The downfall continued, and Microsoft failed to do anything meaningful with the Nokia brand. It is one of the most despicable ventures for Microsoft and Steve Balmer.
Next, In the year 2015, Nokia purchased the French mobile manufacturer, Alcatel-Lucent. This kindled hope in the hearts of millions of NOKIA fans (including me) of a possible rebound.
But this story has more twists.
Ending the climax, HMD Global acquired the rights to use the Nokia brand name and sell smartphones globally.
Nokia Brand – Nokia was the world’s top mobile brand, the space that is now occupied by Apple. They had a 60% plus market share, but now it is less than 3%. It could be the greatest comeback by any brand if they play the cards right.
HMD Global launched the first re-imagined Nokia phone “Nokia 6” in China, in Jan 2017, and the phone got an incredible response from fans.
Nokia later launched the Flagship Nokia 8 that comes with innovative Dual Selfie mode, “Bothie” and OZO sound technology, and Carl Zeiss Camera lens.
Notably, HMD Global has partnered with Foxconn (Apple’s manufacturing partner) to make Nokia phones.
Also, apart from India and China, the company is expanding in other countries, but it is still a speck of dust in comparison to what it used to be.
A couple of months back, I wrote about if Nokia Can Become a leading brand again and even about my first ever Nokia phone from 2004.
Also, Note earlier rumored phones like Nokia P1 or Nokia C1 are not going to launch as per the latest reports.
