Before we walk you through the list of Nokia Upcoming Android Phone 2017,
let’s have a quick sneak peek into the history of Nokia in India. Do have a read!
A brief timeline of Nokia’s journey so far in India
- Nokia’s growth story in India has been phenomenal and synchronic as compared to its stance in the South Asian nation’s telecom sector.
- Nokia was launched in India in 1995, and after 2 decades, Nokia has its offices in 10 of the country’s major cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Chennai to name a few.
- At present, Finnish company HMD Global has acquired the rights to make and sell phones with the Nokia branding. HMD Global, which is now the new home of Nokia has confirmed that the upcoming Nokia Android phones will be powered by Google’s Android operating system. In a press release on 8th January, 2017, they announced their launch of first Nokia Android mobile, Nokia 6 in China.
- In 2013, Microsoft announced that it was buying out Nokia’s devices business for $7.2 billion. Irrespective of Nokia’s ownership, the brand has left behind a legacy that many of us can always relate to.
Here are some of the many firsts Nokia had given us:
- The first phone call on a mobile phone in India was made on a Nokia handset through a Nokia network.
- Nokia introduced first ever Indian ringtone – “Saare Jahan Se Accha”– on a Nokia 5110 handset in 1998.
- Nokia introduced first ever phone with a user menu in Hindi on its Nokia 3210 handset in 2000.
- Nokia introduced first ever camera phone in India in 2002 – Nokia 7650, and a year later it introduced its Nokia 1100 – the company’s first made-for-India phone.
- Nokia introduced SMS in Hindi in 2004, and the same year this brand also introduced the first WiFi enabled phone – Nokia Communicator N9500. It added user interfaces in other Indian languages in 2005.
- In 2006, the Finnish company was the first mobile phone company in India to set up a manufacturing unit at Sriperumbudur, near the southern Indian city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu.
- Nokia launched their first regional news portal in India in 2007 and launched Nokia Life in 2009. Nokia Life was the first of its kind information tool for mobile phones in India.
Nokia which has had rough times is back with a bang and their comeback is huge this time with an array of Nokia upcoming phones Android.
Here’s what Arto Nummela, chief executive officer of HMD Global had to say about the launch, “I have never seen in my life that when we enter meetings, customers (distributors or trade partners) hug us – that’s because of Nokia (equity and trust).”
He probably indicated towards the trust and love that the brand has built in all those years not only with customers but also with trade partners.
Apart from winning over the trust of their old customers in India, the company is aimed at impressing those who have never used a Nokia latest Android phone before by launching Nokia 3, 5 and 6. Since Indian telecom market is already dominated by biggies like Apple and Samsung, Nokia has geared up to once again become the favorite brand in India. And Nokia latest Android phones are already justifying the aforementioned statement with their unique take on Android.

Here’s a list of Upcoming Nokia Android phone 2017
Kicking off our list of Nokia Upcoming Android phone 2017 is the legendary brick phone – Nokia 3310. Finally this much anticipated iconic phone Nokia 3310 launched in India today and is available at Rs. 3310 and is available for sale on Amazon and Flipkart from May 18 on wards.
Ajey Mehta, VP (India), HMD Global had this to say on Nokia 3310 launch,
“Talk all day on a single charge, send texts, take pictures and enjoy a pocket jukebox with a built-in FM Radio and MP3 player. Our reinvention of this classic design is sure to make you smile. It’s got everything you remember, but with a modern twist. So whether you’re after a feature phone that offers amazing battery life in a head turning design or a companion phone, the Nokia 3310 won’t let you down.”
First released at the turn of the millennium, everyone’s favorite pre-smartphone phone has been reborn. The phone brand’s new owner HMD Global is pitching Nokia’s grandeur days before the smartphone era, releasing an upgraded take on the feature phone that debuted in 2000. The announcement has certainly spread a wave of nostalgia among those who owned the original, bringing back fond memories of predictive text, the patented ringtone, and not to mention once most popular mobile phone game – Snake. The relaunch of the classic Nokia 3310 was the highlighted topic in the annual Mobile World Congress last week. This nostalgic Nokia phone that was first released in 2000, has been upgraded ten times with a long battery life, a camera and a color screen.
For those who want a break from the smartphone era and are willing to return to the virgin days of simple text messages, polyphonic ringtones, and the Snake game, Nokia 3310 can be their ideal choice. HMD Global is yet to announce an official release date for the 3310, but it is expected to be available this summer.

In one of their recent posts, Forbes had raised this rationalized question – “Why Nokia 5 is the coolest iPhone challenger?” As we had earlier said Nokia’s comeback is huge, Nokia has been already making considerable hay by relaunching the classic
Nokia Android phone 2017 – Nokia 3310. However, it is the new range of Nokia Android smartphones on which Nokia’s future largely depends.
Back in 2013, one of Nokia’s shareholders had told then Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Please switch to another road.” Probably this time, the HMD Global has taken his words literally and are offering some high-end Android phones.
But in reminiscence, Nokia might have designed the best, slickest Android phones around that can give Samsung and Apple a tough competition. Arguably Nokia’s comeback was the biggest winner from Mobile World Congress. And the Nokia Trinity (that’s what we would like to refer) – Nokia 3, 5 & 6 are Android-powered handsets and are the best upcoming Nokia phones in 2017. (albeit not as much as the new Nokia 3310 feature phone).
This Nokia Android phone evokes memories of the Linux-powered N9 and is the most enticing of the Nokia Trinity. This Nokia Android phone is an even mix of a good balance of power and value. It has proved nimble and responsive in tests. Since its screen isn’t full HD, the phone is expected to run faster flanked by longer battery life than its competitors. Nokia 5 boasts a unibody carved from individual blocks of 6000 Series aluminum – a manufacturing process on which Nokia claims to invest an hour in cutting out each one and 12 hours on the whole to finish.
