Top Best Nokia Android phones to look out for in 2017

There used to be a time when Nokia used to rule the mobile industry. However, as soon as the smartphone era kicked in and it started booming, Nokia had lost the plot and were completely left out in the cold because of few bad decisions of their senior management personnel. Microsoft had acquired the mobile phones business of Nokia back in April 2014 for $7.17 Billion but it wasn’t fruitful. Later, the Redmond company sold the entry-level business to FIH Mobile for $350 Million. On the other hand, Nokia had also signed a strategic deal with HMD Global to make Nokia-branded phones and tablets. Hence, Nokia Android phones are coming in 2017.

In December 2016, HMD Global had announced that they have officially entered the mobile market. Thus, we can expect Nokia Android smartphones, tablets and other accessories starting H1 2017. The first set of Nokia Android mobiles will get announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona between February 27 – March 2. We are expecting at least couple of smartphones from Nokia to be showcased at MWC. Couple of upcoming Nokia mobiles were leaked and thus we have prepared a list of Nokia Android phones. Specifications and rendered images used below are not 100% accurate but we will keep on updating the list as soon as we get some legit rumors or information. Although, according to the latest news, at least five Nokia Android smartphones will get launched in 2017 and they will have a display size between 5.0-inch to 5.7-inch with WQHD or FHD resolutions. If you’re looking for the best phones running on Android from other brands for the time being, check out the Best Android Phones.
