Nokia is making its comeback into the budget smartphone arena specially in Asia, Africa, and other developing continents. They are specifically targeting budget smartphone makers like, Xiaomi, LeEco, Oppo and many.  Nokia is using stock Android version, which means it’s might biggest rival for OnePlus as Nokia seems to be loyal when giving security updates and system updates.

The only thing I’m expecting is how Nokia will compete with the huge grown brands like Apple, Samsung, LG, Huawei, and more. Further, with the launch of budget Nokia devices, it is interesting to discusses the survival of Indian smartphone companies specially Micromax.

Nokia’s comeback will definitely change the smartphone industry and mobile networking. BSNL is planning to bring 5G in India with collaboration of Nokia the father of 5G, lets hope for good!
