Nokia Could Be Planning on New Android Products, Says Reports

By Prarthito

    Nokia has been one of the primary handset companies in India much before the likes of Samsung and HTC even emerged into the scene. Since the days of its first feature phones, Nokia has been a prime player. However, time has given rise to new big players.

    Nokia, in recent times, has struggled to keep up with the market. With premium players such as Samsung, Sony and Apple at the front, going ahead has been quite difficult. However, it seems like all hope is not lost.

    Nokia Could Be Planning on New Android Products, Says Reports

    According to reports, Nokia might be planning on new handsets behind its closed doors. And apparently, the handsets are said to come running the Android OS under the hoods. So a new Nokia handset with Android yet again, eh?

    As revealed via a recent job listing on LinkedIn, it seems like the company is currently looking for an imaging software engineer who has experience with Android. And while jumping into conclusions might be too mainstream, it does suggest that the company is indeed working on new products that will make use of the platform.

    This, while still waiting to be finalized, could be big news for the Finnish handset maker. It hasn't been long since Nokia's Devices and Services was bought by Microsoft. Also revealed after that were Microsoft's plans to kill the Android-based Nokia X series of devices.

    According to Phone Arena, there have been other similar job listings on LinkedIn that have also revealed that the company was indeed also looking to hire designers and other software engineers to help it build an Android handset.
