Nokia revealed last month that it would be returning to the smartphone market this year. HMD Global, a Finnish company that was founded to create phones under the Nokia brand name, revealed the first new Nokia-branded Android phone at the weekend. Dubbed Nokia 6, the new handset will only be available in China in the coming months. However, HMD Global is also planning to unveil additional Nokia-branded smartphones, and the company is teasing February 26th for potential announcements.
In a Facebook post, Nokia Mobile simply says “more announcements to follow on February 26th,” a date that lines up perfectly with the start of the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona. It’s not clear exactly what we’ll see on the 26th, but the Nokia 6 smartphone is a fairly mid-range device that’s unlikely to appeal to those who are waiting to see if HMD Global can recreate Nokia’s classic hardware design and pair it well with Android. We’ll find out a lot more next month, and TechOptimals will be live from Mobile World Congress to bring you the latest news from Nokia, Samsung, and many more.
