Well don’t be amazed, these numbers might appear to be large, but actually the figures show that the Nokia had a 65% drop in the production of their feature phones. Numbers show that Nokia had shipped 90 million feature phone units in 2015. But still, the comeback of Nokia is guaranteed because of the revival of its most famous product, Nokia 3310 for which HMD is working hard and planning to leave behind Samsung which in present times, is giving some tough competition to Nokia. According to the latest news, the date has also been announced for the Nokia 3310 release and the best part is that it has its Iconic “Snake Game” preinstalled in it. The 22 hours long talk time and a full month of stand by time of the mega sized battery of this phone make it unbeatable in the market.
HMD for the Production and All Other Stuff
By giving the rights of production and sale to HMD, Nokia has made a very sensational comeback in the business last year. They produced and released Nokia 150 smartphone. After that, Nokia 1506 was also released which made a huge impact on the market due to its enormous sale. The Nokia lovers are now looking forward for more smartphones by the company.
