Back in April of last year, Nokia announced its intent to purchase French health company Withings. Withings was known for its large range of consumer health products, including smart scales, activity trackers, Bluetooth thermometers, and more. Today Nokia is not only announcing new health products, but also discontinuing the Withings brand entirely.

Android 7.1.1 starts rolling out to the Nokia 6

The most nostalgic new entrant into the Android space has updated its ostensible flagship device—the Nokia 6 is starting to see a rollout for 7.1.1. The device launched with 7.0 in most markets, so it's nice to see it updated so quickly as other devices continue to chug along on older versions.

Nokia is planning a global release for its new devices, including the USA

 

A decade ago, I started my "blogging" career as a Nokia and Symbian enthusiast. For the better part of 5 years, most of my online life and work revolved around the brand, its new phones, announcements, events, apps, games, themes, and more. It's both ironic and nostalgic to say, but Nokia is part of the reason I'm here on Android Police now. So you can imagine I have a lot of love and unconscious attachment for the brand. I have kept an eye on its recent resurrection at MWC with the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and revamped 3310, and this news today makes me even more excited about it.

Nokia's comeback explained: Why the historic phone company is suddenly making Android phones

After the iPhone and Android devices entered the smartphone scene, they changed the entire industry. The formerly-dominant companies in this space - RIM, Nokia, and Palm to name a few - couldn't catch up fast enough. Nokia, which was the giant to beat at the time, quickly found itself bleeding and struggling to maintain its once dominant market share before Microsoft bought its mobile devices division.

So why are we now seeing Nokia-branded phones in 2017, years after Nokia seemingly left the competitive smartphone marketplace? The answer lies in a somewhat-complicated history of poor choices, acquisitions, and licensing deals.

Nokia takes the wraps off of the Nokia 5, 3, and 3310, also announces global availability of the Nokia 6 and more

I have fond memories of Nokia, like many others, so I was excited to watch the Finnish firm's announcements today at MWC. The presentation started with more talk on the OZO 360° virtual reality camera, which was used to livestream everything to YouTube 360. Also of note was that Nokia is finalizing its purchase of Withings, the French connected devices company. Most importantly, however, were the phone announcements.

The Nokia 6, formerly exclusive to China, is going global.  We also saw the new Nokia 5, 3, and the relaunched, redesigned version of the fan favorite 3310.

New Nokia devices may launch at MWC, including a homage to the Nokia 3310

Nokia, much like BlackBerry, no longer manufactures its own devices. After selling its entire mobile division to Microsoft in 2014, it partnered with Foxconn to manufacture the Nokia N1 tablet, but that seemed to be a one-time deal. Now HMD Global, the Finnish manufacturer with the exclusive right to use the Nokia brand for phones, might be launching new Nokia devices at Mobile World Congress.
