Nokia has today confirmed its intention of returning to the smartphone arena during Q2 of 2017. Rumours suggest that the new handset(s) will be unveiled during the Mobile World Congress in February, with availability of the products to soon follow. HMD Global is the company that now owns the license to launch Nokia phones for the next 10 years, and it has confirmed its presence at the trade fair show, which is scheduled to kick off on February 27.
Nokia’s chief executive, Rajeev Suri, is scheduled to make a keynote speech at the conference, where the company will also have an exhibition. Microsoft (being a dick) ran the Nokia brand into the ground, then restricted them from manufacturing phones with its name on until 2015 when the company said it would consider re-entering the market.
No more confirmed details have been released about the upcoming products, however the devices are expected to ship with Android Nougat or whatever the current Android version is at the time. (R.I.P Windows phones)
