Nokia 5 will go on sale in India from 15th August | Specs | Price and Availability

      Once the king of mobile phone devices, the fall of Nokia pained a lot of their fans. Their initial objection to Android, coupled with a stiff competition from Apple and Google hastened the Finland company’s sharp decline. The inability to give a tough fight to the ever-growing popularity of Android and iOS devices, at a time when smartphones were taking over the world resulted in a decision to sell the mobiles’ division to Microsoft. Microsoft, a struggling company with regards to smartphones themselves, removed the Nokia branding from the phones and replaced it with Microsoft. This marked the end of an era, a time during which the company once even accounted for nearly 4% of the total GDP of Finland.

      A couple of years back, Nokia Technologies announced a plan to return to smartphone manufacturing. With a few hiccups here and there, it seems that the company have finalized a strategy to approach the saturated smartphone market.
