Nokia smartphones are back on track in 2019

“We didn’t do anything wrong, but somehow we lost.” These were the ending lines of Nokia’s CEO at a press conference. Nokia has been a very decent contender in the mobile phone industry. In 2007, more than half of the market share was in the hands of Nokia and at that Apple had only a 5% market share. In the coming years, the Market share of Nokia kept on declining and it never recovered. In 2013 Nokia’s mobile phone business. was acquired by Microsoft to focus Windows Phones, however, they terribly failed. Consequently, in 2016 Nokia bought back the mobile phone business. In December 2016, HMD Global, a Finnish company, started to manufacturer features and smartphones under Nokia’s brand name and that is the time when the lost hope in Nokia started to restore because now they have switched to Android.

HMD has used the brand elements of Nokia such as loyalty and trust to its advantage. They also hired some former employees of Nokia, who understood the brand as well as its customers. Everything turned out well and in the first quarter of 2017, Nokia was able to sell around 100,000 units. In the last quarter of the same year, Nokia pushed sales to 4.4 million units around the world. To everyone’s surprise, Nokia sold 17.6 million units in 2018.

So far, in the 2nd quarter of 2019, Nokia has sold 4.8 million units with 20% year on year growth in shipments as compared to the same quarter of the previous years.

The growing figures of Nokia are the result of their decently designed, Android running, and affordable smartphones. A very formidable set of smartphones has been released by Nokia so far in 2019 and probably more are coming up. Let’s have a look at some of them;
