According to report from a Chinese News Firm, the Nokia China President Mike Wang earlier confirmed that three to four Nokia branded devices including smartphones and tablets would be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
It seems Nokia is coming with much enthusiasm in order to redeem its lost glory. Under the initial contract between Microsoft and Nokia, no device under Nokia’s brand name should be released until the last quarter of 2016.
Earlier in July, rumours had it that two “Nokia branded” Android devices made by Finland’s HMD Global might eventually enter the mobile market. The rumour says the device would come with a 5.2 inch and 5.5 inch display alongside IP68 certification, which implies that they will be highly resistant to dust and water, having similar features to Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
Although announcements might come within the fourth quarter of the year, it is still possible that the device will be unveiled early 2017. This is because Foxconn will manufacture them and they would be designed by the Finnish company HMD who bought part of Nokia’s phone assets from Microsoft. Regardless that, the brand name will still remain Nokia and hopefully soonest, the internet will be flooded with leaks of these upcoming Nokia devices.
As for now, there are no specifications of the upcoming Nokia smartphones and tablets.
