Nokia and Meizu may build smartphones together
A few months ago Nokia announced it would return to the smartphone market and it seems the first steps have been made.
According to Nokia, the official return will likely take place in Q4 2016 and unlike before Nokia will not be building smartphones – instead it will only sell Nokia-branded handsets made by another company. In this scenario Nokia will only lend its brand name to the new smartphones.
The question that remains then is who will make the future Nokia-branded smartphones. If we judge by a recent tweet by the Chinese OEM smartphone maker Meizu that reads “welcome back Nokia”, this could be the Chinese company. Next to the text you can see the date July 16, which happens to be tomorrow. So there might be a major announcement scheduled for this day.
Of course nothing has been confirmed so take this information with a grain of salt. In any case a Nokia – Meizu partnership will not be a bad thing, don’t you think?
