Nokia all set to make comeback with 2 new Android 7.0 Nougat devices

Manila: Finnish telecommunications giant Nokia is all set to make a smartphone comeback with two new Android 7.0 Nougat devices by the end of this year, a media report said on Saturday.

The two unnamed devices will have premium metal designs complete with IP68 certification, which means they will be as water resistant as Samsung`s Galaxy S7, The Inquirer reported.

The smartphones may come up with 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch QHD screens, along with fingerprint scanner and "innovations" in the camera, the report noted.

Both the smartphones are expected to feature split-screen modes, enhanced notifications and improved gaming thanks to support for the Vulkan API and could bring "elements of touch and hover interaction", hinting 3D Touch-like technology.

The struggling company revealed in May that it licensed Finland-based HMD to produce Nokia branded mobile phones and tablets.

After acquiring Nokia`s phone business for $7.2 billion two years ago, Microsoft wrote off $7.6 billion last year and cut 7,800 jobs to refocus its phone efforts.

Microsoft`s Lumia and Windows Phone strategy has failed as both sales and Windows Phone market share have declined since the tech giant`s mobile restructuring last year.

It is believed that the multinational technology company has been working on a `plan B` if Nokia wasn`t successful with Windows Phone.
