We might finally see Nokia branded smartphones at MWC 2017.

Nokia fans rejoice! The Finnish company has been on the skids for a while, having their prime being before the smartphone became a thing. After being cut off from Microsoft, they’ve been pretty quiet, with rumors silently floating around that they were getting into the smartphone game on their own. Those of you eagerly waiting for that smartphone to come may not have to wait for much longer.

A tweet from the company stated that their CEO, Rajeev Suri, will be giving a keynote at next year’s Mobile World Congress. That’s not enough to spur anyone to believe that they’re launching any devices at that keynote, but that’s coupled with some other news. A company called HDM Global was founded in order to be the actual manufacturer of the phones. They were given the license to have Nokia’s brand name on their devices for the next ten years. Not only that, but there was a slide in a presentation made by Nokia with one of the bullet points indicating “Nokia brand’s return to smartphones.”

All of these clues make us pretty confident that the Nokia brand will once again see the light of day, and soon. With it, we hope to see the same features that made the Nokia phones such a smash hit back in the company’s golden years; the great battery life and excellent build quality. Only time will tell. Those of you who are excited, sound off in the comments below!
