The 2010s were complicated for Nokia, to say the least. The Finnish firm, once the market leader, has missed the turn of touchscreen smartphones and has never really caught up.
Nokia devices are now developed and marketed under exclusive license by HMD Global Oy, a Finnish telecommunications company. In terms of production, it is FIH Mobile, alias Foxconn, which takes care of it and which in the process holds 14.38% of the company’s shares.
The return of high-end Nokia?
But unlike BlackBerry which has disappeared from the radar, Nokia continues to exist with entry and mid-range smartphones. However, it could be that the brand tries a new foray into the high-end segment with two models, the X60 and X60 Pro.
The site ITHome explains that these mysterious devices will be equipped with a 200 MP photo sensor. If this is not a guarantee of quality, it at least shows that Nokia still has strong ambitions. There’s also a 6000mAh battery, a curved panel with a high refresh rate and a high-end SoC, perhaps the S888 +, which has just been unveiled.
These devices are notably planned for the Chinese market, and moreover, according to some sources, they could run on HarmonyOS, the operating system developed by Huawei. Obviously, this has not been confirmed yet.
