Nokia To Release 6-7 Android Powered Smartphones This Year

It is not a mystery anymore that Nokia is making a comeback this year in collaboration with HMD Global. For those who do not know, HMD Global is the company that bought Nokia’s branding rights from Microsoft. Adding to the series of news that has been posted about Nokia’s upcoming Android phones, a latest leak reveals that the company could launch as many as seven Android-powered phones in 2017. It means that throughout the year, we will get to see new smartphones coming out under Nokia brand.


The leak is in the form of a slide picture that was being shown to Nokia distributors in Malaysia, organised by Avaxx (which makes the information believable). Avaxx is an established Nokia / Microsoft distributor in Malaysia. The pictures of the event were shared on Facebook. One of the slides mentions HMD Global and Nokia’s roadmap for this year, which includes Android-powered smartphones under all segments – Low, Mid, and High. We have already reported numerous times about the much-talked about Nokia D1C, which is a mid-ranger featuring full HD (1920 x 1080) display and Android 7.0 Nougat.

HMD Global earlier confirmed that it would be using stock Android on all the upcoming phones instead of creating its own UI. We will be getting unadulterated Android experience on the Nokia-branded phones, but the company might add a few pre-installed apps to the package. These phones are expected to debut in February at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Before the official unveiling of these phones, we shall brace ourselves to see many more leaks.
