Nokia is designing phones again in 2016




Nokia’s CEO, Rajeev Suri, has confirmed again to design phones that should appear under the name Nokia 2016. The Finnish company could not produce the devices, but its name will provide under license.

Nokia CEO expressed confirmation by the German Manager Magazin. In 2016 the company is going to release his name will be licensed to other companies. Which may then transfer the name Nokia handsets on the market that Nokia designs. There were already more rumors about this step, which Nokia invariably denied .

That will be in the second half of 2016. The sale of its phone division at Microsoft in 2013, Nokia was committed to time to keep aloof from the phone market. However, late last year a tablet under the Nokia name released , the N1, which is made ​​by Foxconn.

It seems unlikely that the mobile market again will play a major role for Nokia. The group now focuses on telecommunications and other networks and that it took this year Alcatel-Lucent for about an amount of 15.6 billion euros. The Lord-service plan is in the shop window.

Nokia was forced out his cell phone stuck in 2013 to sell to Microsoft after the sale of the former Finnish giant had collapsed. The then CEO of the company, Stephen Elop, had in the previous period made the choice for Windows Phone, in the hope that Nokia could distinguish this market dominated by iPhones and many Android devices. That strategy failed. Elop himself returned to Microsoft, where he this week left .
