“Nokia notes recent news reports claiming the company communicated an intention to manufacture consumer handsets out of a R&D facility in China. These reports are false,” Nokia said in a statement posted on its website. The message did say however that , Nokia has said it is looking into returning to the smartphones business by brand-licensing.
Since Nokia sols its smartphone arm to Microsoft last year, we believe there was a clause in the deal that says Nokia would not enter into the smartphone market before 2016.
So There you have it, Don’t expect Nokia smart phones any time soon.
