- Nokia May Be resurrecting the N-Series at MWC 2017
Not much has been heard from Nokia and its partner, HDM group in weeks after the companies in collaboration released the mid-range but whopping Nokia 6 into the market. For the first Android smartphone released by the company, the sales were great as the smartphone sold out completely in its first minute when introduced on sale on Chinese e-commerce website, JD.com. Although the smartphone company did not reveal the number of units of the smartphone it made available for sale, the smartphone had already gathered more than two hundred and fifty thousand applications in the first twenty-four hours of its announcement at the CES 2017. Following the announcement, the China-only smartphone gathered over a million registrations from customers.
However, in furtherance to this, rumors have indicated that the smartphone company is looking to resurrect its N-series smartphone line and this sounds like a cool perspective. Recall that Nokia following the epic fail in the Lumia department with Microsoft had decided to release the Nokia 6 smartphone only to the Chinese market. However, the new range of Android-powered smartphones has been rumored to be getting international exposure.
The latest hint on the N-series line comes after a smartphone suspected to be Nokia’s next wonder passed through China’s Patent Office. The trademark further hinted that the N-series might be the next line up from the smartphone producers.
Recall that the birth of the Lumia series signaled the end of the N-series. However, not much details about the next line of the device have surfaced as the tech company along with its partner, HDM Global are keeping a tight lid on their next projects.
Nokia is however expected to make a major announcement at the Mobile World Congress 2017 holding in Barcelona later in February. Another rumor, however, claims that the smartphone will be featuring the 6th generation Snapdragon processor courtesy of Qualcomm.
We keep our itchy fingers crossed however as we await the official opening of the Mobile World Congress 2017 which is expected to usher in an array of new gadgets.
