Nokia was a major phone brand in the early 2000s. The company lost its market share to new manufacturers that launched touchscreen Android phones in 2018 (and later). As Nokia was struggling and didn’t have enough funds to operate, the company’s management decided to sell Nokia. Microsoft acquired Nokia in 2014 with ambitions to take on Apple and smartphone manufacturers and introduced Windows OS powered Nokia phones. It kept launching Nokia branded Windows mobiles for a few years. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as Microsoft had expected. Thus in 2016, Microsoft Corporation announced that it would stop developing the Windows Phone OS and a few months after the announcement, the software giant sold Nokia to HMD global. HMD started launching Android phones instead of Symbian or Windows phones.
The current position of Nokia in the smartphone market is better, thanks to the Android OS. The company hasn’t completely regained the market it has lost in the past but it is growing quickly. One day it might become one of the top 3 phone manufacturers in the world.
Why Nokia is a great brand? We like and recommend Nokia because it is one of the few phone manufacturers that updates its phones with new security patches and a newer version of the OS on a regular basis. It is a great brand for people who want to use phones running on the stock Android operating system.
Nokia has been launching Android touchscreen smartphones on a regular basis. Here are the latest smartphones the firm was introduced in various parts of the world in the last few months:
