Nokia will be back in the smartphone business next year.
It will still take a while but 2017 will be the year when Nokia will return to the smartphone market, according to information detected in a presentation found on the Nokia website.

Next year will be an important milestone in the final return of the famous Finnish smartphone manufacturer that once ruled the phone business before iOS and Android came along. According to information found in a presentation that was detected on the Nokia website, Nokia's timeline promises a return to the smartphone market in 2017. We have heard rumors about new smartphones from Nokia for months now. First there were rumors about two new high-end models. Those will be apparently come with screen sizes between 5.2 and 5.5 inches and feature QHD-resolution plus state of the art technology inside.

Last but not least, we expect the D1C midrange phone, that already appeared on Geekbench and AnTuTu to be released next year with a Snapdragon 430 on board. Of course Nokia will not be the manufacturers but merely licensing their popular name, instead the phones will be produced by the HMD consortium, which Foxconn is a big part of. Android 7 is expected to come preinstalled on all Nokia phones next year. We are expecting Nokia to launch their phones during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona early next year.

As a former projectionist still used to working with 35 mm film and experience in computer assembling and overclocking, I was drawn to the professional IT crowd a couple of years back and started working in IT support, Windows administration and project management before discovering my love for traveling the world. Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
