Nokia Nseries Could Be Resurrected, New Mid-Range Smartphone to Be Unveiled

HMD might make use of the hugely popular branding

Do you believe in magic? Because that's what HMD Global is trying to do for the millions of Nokia fans out there. The Finnish company is said to try to revive the Nokia Nseries lineup, which has seen its last member launched on the market back in 2012.

 

We're not going to actually include the Nokia N1 tablet in the Nseries since we'll be referring to smartphones only. The last Nseries phone was the N9, which was a Meego-based device, but an N950 model was launched soon afterwards as a developer-only smartphone.

 

However, rumors coming out of China claim HMD plans to resurrect Nokia's Nseries brand this year, and the first product might be unveiled later this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC).

 

Obviously, these rumors must be taken with a grain of salt, especially that they're a bit confusing. Any true Nokia fan knows the Nseries is a flagship series, so it would make sense for HMD to launch a high-end Nseries device at MWC 2017.

But the latest reports say the first Nseries device to be unveiled by HMD will be a mid-range smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 6xx processor. The only evidence the source of the rumor has is a picture of a promo material with the Nseries logo on it.

 

Furthermore, it appears that the said Nokia Nseries smartphone will be the first targeted to reach 50 million units produced, which would be quite an achievement for a company like HMD that has just opened doors.

 

We don't want to ruin it for you, but this seems a bit far fetched and impractical for HMD Global, as the company need s to make sure it can cope with the demand for its smartphones when they go on sale.

 

However, a new Nseries smartphone is not out of the question, so we won't rule it out for the moment. One thing is certain thought, we will get all the answers in just a few weeks, as Nokia and HMD have already announced a joint event for February 26.

Still have my old Nokia 500 somewhere with Symbian Belle OS... It still has some features than most of nowadays Androids doesn't have :D Like the simplest flip the phone screen down to mute the call. Android needs gyro for that IIRC. Nokia 500 doesn't have gyro, but the feature works...

Anyway, feels good to see Nokia returning.
