Nokia to make its comeback in 2017

The main reason they went under was that they could not predict the consumer direction like Samsung and Apple.

The Nokia brand is probably the most famous mobile brand on the planet. Even after a decade of not being a major player in the industry, they are still held very highly by the consumer market. The main reason they went under was that they could not predict the consumer direction like Samsung and Apple. It is not because their products were inferior.

In fact, they primarily ushered in the high-performance camera and many other features that come synonymous with the modern Smartphone. But in 2017 they intend to partner with Android in the software department.

Their biggest problem was mainly in the application store. The windows store was not stalked like the App Store and Apple store. Many of their applications were not user-friendly and most needed a subscription fee.

To be fair, they wanted to uphold one of their biggest features; security. But they failed miserly. But in partnering with Android, they can stick to what they do best, and that is creating hardware.

"The CEO of mobile device commodities of Microsoft Asia, James Rutherford was quoted in the Vietnamese media saying that HMD Global plans to launch two new phones in Q4 2016 and at least two Smartphone in early Q2 2017," said a popular tech blogger Richard Goodwin from Know Your Mobile.

From pre-designs that have licked from Nokia, it seems that Nokia will follow the design of many Smartphones already on the market. However, they may maintain their plastic exterior that made the Lumia so famous. They may even crack the longevity of the Smartphone battery that has evaded so many Smartphone makers.
