Just a few years ago, Nokia was regarded as one of the best handset manufacturers in the world. Its devices had been equipped with all outstanding components, which make them the best in the market not only in terms of durability but also performance.
Nokia’s handsets became very popular within a short time, which pushed Microsoft to buy the company. While Microsoft hoped that it will be able to grab a strong position in the smartphone market by combining Nokia’s huge popularity and the versatility of its Windows operating system, the plan did not work accordingly.
Most of the users began to prefer the Android smartphones, rather than the handsets run through Windows. One of main reasons behind the move was Android beating Windows by a huge margin in terms of number of apps. However, Microsoft was too determined to use only its own operating system in its own brand smartphones. As a result, during the last several years, Samsung had lost a significant portion of its smartphone market share.
However, according to smartphone 2016 news sources, Nokia has been planning to revive itself by introducing new handsets next year. While Rajeev Suri, the CEO of the company, confirms about the plan, he hadn’t disclosed any information regarding their upcoming devices. Nonetheless, some of the smartphone 2016 rumors claim that the company will reveal an Android handset, called Nokia C1, in the next year.
The Nokia C1 is said to feature 5-inch IPS capacitive display, 2GB of RAM, 8-MP primary camera and 5-MP secondary camera. According to smartphone 2016 rumors, the new smartphone will run through Android 5.0 Lollipop, which will definitely help Nokia to get back its lost market share.
Some of the smartphone 2016 rumors also claim that Nokia will release another new Android handset next year. It will be known as Nokia E1. The device is expected to be equipped with 4.95-inch IPS display, Gorilla Glass coating, 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, 20-MP primary camera and 5-MP secondary camera. According to smartphone 2016 rumors, it will be Nokia’s flagship device.
While most of the reports are obsessed with Nokia’s smartphone 2016 rumors, some of them are expecting that the company will release an Android tablet in the next year. Last year, Nokia unexpectedly released the Android based N1 tablet. So, there is always a chance for the same thing happening again in 2016.
