Nokia Smartphones to be released in America

#Nokia #US #smartphones #MWC2017 #technology

After confirming three android powered handsets at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), Nokia’s parent company HMD Global is looking to return the Nokia brand to the US. It’s a pretty neat move, just when Apple handsets are sighted as being not much different from it’s predecessors, and Samsung hitting frequent roadblocks due to its ‘unfinished’ technology, Nokia is looking to grab a bite of the smartphone market.

Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be released in the US, as they replied to a tweet that was asking if the smartphone are going to be released in the US, “We’re planning on a global release so yes they will be.”

It is suspected that a ‘direct to customer’ approach with SIM-free handsets on sale direct from HMD’s website will be the preferred option.

Get excited for Nokia’s Sunday launch!

#Nokia #HMDGlobal #MWC2017 #mobile #launch #thisSunday

Yes, you might have heard the word Nokia. It was a mobile brand that was amazing in early ages but failed to keep-on with the advancing technological world.

And now there is mainly Apple and Samsung that are dominating in this field. (I have an iPhone 7+ as well). But as you recently heard that HMD Global bought the Nokia name, and is eager to release new products under the name.

The first Nokia-branded android phones will be releasing at MWC (Mobile World Congress) on Sunday. Nokia even confirmed that it will be live-streaming the launch event on Sunday through the official Facebook and Youtube account of the Nokia Mobile at 9pm IST.

HMD Global is expected to bring back the refresh of Nokia 3310 feature phone and will also be releasing other devices like Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

Nokia shares fall.

Nokia shares fell by nearly 5 percent on Thursday in Helsinki.

Nokia’s patent license contract with Apple expires at the end of the year. Nokia has accused Apple of violating some of its technology patents, and Apple has complained about being overcharged on the same. Nokia said that it has now filed 40 patents suits in 11 countries covering different technologies.

Patent royalties represent a sliver of Nokia’s overall revenue, more than 90 percent of which comes from sales of telecom network equipment. But the licensing payments are highly profitable at a time when the network business is suffering an industry-wide slump.

Nokia sold its handset business to Microsoft in 2014 and focused on its network business as well as a portfolio of mobile device patents. Wells Fargo Securities analyst Maynard Um, who follows both companies, said the lawsuits were negative for Apple and Nokia due to litigation costs and uncertainty over the outcome.

Nokia’s patents cover technology that reduces the need for hardware components in a phone, conserves battery life, increases radio reception, helps in recovering lost phones and enables voice recognition, among other features. Read the full article here.

Nokia Phones won’t be joining the Hardware race

Nokia aka HMD is planning to release its first android smartphone early 2017. This will be the first phone under the Nokia name since February 2016 when it released the Lumia 650 Windows phone.

Initially, these new Nokia phones will not join the hardware specs race like many of the Chinese phonemakers. These Nokia phones will have a unique and better user experience.

An HMD official stated that Nokia wants to solve the real problems of phone consumers and have a above average camera or battery and other specifications.

The first Nokia-HMD phone, coded Nokia D1C seems to be having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, with a fullHD screen , a 13-megapixel front camera and a 8-megapixel rear camera. The specifications will be average for the 2017 phone market and the actual performance of the Phone is what will matter.

This is the same approach that Nokia took 15-20 years in the phone sector that was dominated by Sony and Samsung. And this led to Nokia dominating the Phonr market for a while. However it is not sure that the same approach will be feasible in the today’s volatile phone market. We will be having eyes on the Nokia D1C!

The plan is to use android, made is tight collaboration with Google, with the Nokia in-house technologies and launch a simple enhanced version of the phone during the first half of 2017. The focus of the market will be India! (I wish to get hands on it as soon as it is available in the market)
