Nokia in the fourth quarter coped better than manufacturers such as HTC, Sony and Google. Does Nokia have a chance for TOP-3 smartphone manufacturers?
Nokia is a company that you like for the principle. Most of the people who were born in the 90s as one of their phones had the model of this producer. Some of you probably still have them somewhere in the drawer. It is not a surprise that the company's return, even if it is under the wings of HDM Global, was very popular. How big? I'm in shock. After the publication of sales results for the fourth quarter, it turned out that Nokia overtook … HTC, Lenovo, OnePlus, Sony, Google, Alcatel, ASUS and several other manufacturers. This shows well what strength nostalgia for old devices has in us. All the above-mentioned companies make good smartphones. In my opinion, no Nokia smartphone has a start to Google Pixel 2 XL or HTC U11. And yet, despite the not-so-good valuation, it sells better.It's time for a few numbers. In the last three months of 2017, more than 4 million smartphones with the Nokia logo hit the market. Even in India, which are known for the very high popularity of Xiaomi, the company managed to jump to the 5th place. But not only there – in the British Isles they are in 3rd place. As far as the whole world is concerned, they currently hold the position of the first ten, with a 1 percent share. And this is not their last word, I'm sure. The far-reaching conclusions that would allow to climb to the top three are still far too early, but I have no doubt – the revived Nokia is the same phenomenon of the mobile market as currently Xiaomi . And in a few years it will be where Xiaomi is now. What do you think, who of the big three Nokia can throw off the podium? Source: gadgets.ndtv
