Now it's official: Nokia smartphones return to market with Android

There are few people who have never had a Nokia. The devices never broke, had good batteries and were cheap too.

The first Nokia smartphones running Android are announced to arrive early next year, Joinfo.com reports with reference to The Verge.

Nokia has signed a 10-year agreement with Global HMD, a Finnish company that mainly consists of former Nokia’s employees.

On company’s website, Nokia announced its new smartphone line as elegant, simple, reliable and durable.

A new phones section on its site marks the return of Nokia-branded smartphones and tablets after Microsoft acquired its phone business and killed off the Nokia brand in favor of Lumia for smartphones. The first Nokia-branded smartphones powered by Android will be available in the first half of 2017, alongside Nokia-branded feature phones.

We’ll be waiting until early next year to see if Nokia will finally succeed with smartphones.
