In 2013, Nokia sold its smartphone division to Microsoft. The step was taken to promote Lumia series in the world with a challenge to compete with Android and iOS flagships. But that decision was not fruitful for both Microsoft and Nokia. Microsoft and Nokia’s Lumia series was not a success. That is why Microsoft ended Nokia branding and also sold their feature phone business to another company. Nokia can only return in 2017 due to an agreement of 10 years with Microsoft. Now Nokia new Android phone is “Nokia 6” that is officially released in China.
