Nokia phones coming Q4 according to China executive

We knew that Nokia had signed a non-compete agreement with Microsoft to not release mobile phones for two years after the Redmond-based company acquired its Devices and Sales division.

For fans of Nokia design, it’s been a waiting gamebetting on when Nokia would actually get back into action for real. At the same time, all of us were watching the slow demise of Windows Phone, now Windows 10 Mobile.

Well, the wheels started turning in Finland just a couple months ago. It licensed out branding and manufacturing for its future devices to a new company and a Foxconn subsidiary, respectively. And just yesterday, in an interview with The Paper, an executive of a Nokia (formerly led by Alcatel-Lucent)-Shanghai Bell joint venture has just confirmed that we should expect a Nokia-branded phone in the fourth quarter.

Nokia has a seat on the board of HMD Global Oy, but it does not have a direct investment in the company, so it’ll be mostly up to the leadership of HMD to make this happen. But we guess that that’s a promise made.

UpdateWang has told NokiaPowerUser that it is planning on two high-end Android phones running on Nougat and one or two more Android phones between the end of this year and the first quarter of next year.
