Even though this had been rumored for years, finally the time has come: this year, Nokia will release its own smartphones running with Android OS. These news have made thousands (or millions) of people happy, because Nokia used to be the most famous cell phone producer in the global market some few years ago. Our expectations are very high, but can we really expect too much about Nokia’s new smartphones?
Nokia returns with thirst of success
Although Nokia launched various models running with Windows Phone, its success wasn’t the same. Many people blame the use of Windows Phone for Nokia’s decrease. Plus, Nokia did not keep up with the drastic and progressive changes iPhone and Android made in no time. These two companies revolutionized the global cell phone market. In fact, they are the worldwide cell phone best-sellers. Their constant competition produces several and continuous innovations. This incessant competition sets higher standards every year, thanks to new technologies and services offered by either one of the companies.
Considering the great rivals Nokia has to face, it is time to keep up with all the new technologies and also offer innovating features. This is not easy, but everything seems to be in Nokia’s favor. Its coalition with HMD Global Oy, a Finnish cell phone producing company, looks like it is what Nokia needs to catapult to the highest range again. Especially because this union between these companies will make Nokia’s smartphones run with Android. Is this beneficious?
Nokia smartphones running with Android; good or bad idea?
First of all, we have to consider what we said before: Android is, next to iOS, the highest standard of cell phone OS’s in the whole world. So, releasing Android smartphones means that Nokia will gain more attention than before. If the Finnish company takes advantage of this new feature, we can almost be sure that it will be a total success.
One negative characteristic about Android-running smartphones is that Nokia is forced to innovate constantly, especially if it wants to compete with the world’s best sellers. Besides, Android OS is not exclusive at all, because many companies use devices running with Android. Thus, due to the lack of exclusiveness, Nokia has to make an extra effort to be ahead all of the other Android devices while competing with iPhones as well. It won’t be easy, that’s for sure.
The actions Nokia will make to stay on top of the other Android devices
Competing and surpassing other Android-running devices will be Nokia’s first challenge, and maybe the hardest one. Does Nokia have something in mind to accomplish that goal? Yes, it does. And it all starts with its union with HMD.
Nokia is going serious, and that is the reason why HMD will make a huge investment of approximately 500 million dollars in order to put Nokia back to the top of the market. Of course, to accomplish this goal, it won’t be easy, especially considering all the competition. But HMD has something special for Nokia.
Let’s go straight to the point: Nokia wants to be very punctual with the Android software updates. Better yet, its goal is to dispose of the first devices to get the Android software update. This idea is excellent, because it means Nokia will always be a step ahead other Android-running devices. Until today, Nexus devices are the first ones to get the latest Android update. This feature has influenced positively in Nexus’s sells. Most people only want to be the first ones to have certain service or feature; that’s why having the Android update before any other devices can be a total triumph. Therefore, it isn’t incorrect to conclude that Nokia (and HMD) will succeed if it accomplishes this objective.
A feature like this supposes a great responsibility for HMD and Nokia. Will they be able to handle such a responsibility? We expect so. Anyway, this isn’t the only action Nokia will make.
Obviously, Nokia is in the need to release new devices to start gaining the public’s confidence again. And we can say that the smartphones Nokia will release this year are pretty astonishing. Let’s analyze 3 outstanding smartphones Nokia will release this year.
