As a brand matures, we see how much more importance it places on creating its own software experience, which makes its mobile phones easier to use.
This is what we saw recently in OnePlus, which with Oxygen OS 11 put aside the aesthetics of Android Stock and started taking steps in a different direction which is through modifying the interface for the make it more usable and more attractive to the eyes. average user.
Something like that might be thinking of Nokia as it prepares to hire an interface designer, as we saw in a job posting on LinkedIn.
Nokia could abandon the Android One interface
Currently, Nokia is one of the few big brands that still uses Android One. Motorola or Xiaomi, two companies that used this variant of the system a few years ago, have put it aside.
It is not confirmed that Nokia will follow this trend but given that the job posting specifically asks someone who knows how to “design graphical user interface elements, such as menus, tabs and widgets “And can” develop UI mockups and prototypes “We might be facing a turning point in Nokia’s interface.
If this change were to occur, it could go in the direction of OnePlus, by modifying the whole interface, but also in the direction of Motorola, by changing only certain parameters, by creating its own applications, but keeping the essence of the design.
Changes in the direction of the management
This offer was published at a time when HMD Global, the firm that uses the Nokia brand for its mobiles, has changed one of its leaders. HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas announced his departure from the company a few days ago, and today we know he will start working at Qualcomm.
It reminds us of Carl Pei’s departure as OnePlus made a big change in its internal policies, not just for software, but for other things, like the number of models to launch each year.
