One of the most anticipated smartphone launches of 2017 centers on HMD Global’s promise to release devices with the Nokia branding. Today, a new yet unconfirmed report claims that the company will in fact launch as many as four Android phones with the Nokia name sometime in the second and third quarters of 2017.
This latest report comes from DigiTimes, using unnamed sources. It says the four new phones will have display sizes that will range from between 5 to 5.7-inches, with resolutions in WQHD or Full HD. The story added that the displays will come from a number of different sources, such as LG Century Technology (CTC) and Innolux.
The story also claims that HMD will reveal its first Nokia-branded phone in late February at the Mobile World Congress trade show. It cites another Chinese-based news source which claims the first phone will be called the Nokia DIC, and will come in two models; one with a 5.0-inch display and 2GB of RAM, and the other with a 5.5-inch screen and 3GB of RAM.
As always, be sure to take these unconfirmed reports with a grain of salt. We’ll be sure to let you know if HMD Global makes any official announcements regarding these rumors.
