Normally, we do associate a company like Nokia to churn out not only high end devices, but they too, do low end stuff that are easy on the bank balance. This time around, it seems that Nokia has every intention to increase its presence in the low end market, which is done partly due out of maintaining market share, while the other reason is due to rising levels of competition among Chinese manufacturers including the likes of Huawei and ZTE.

It seems that these upcoming high end models will work on diversifying Nokia’s portfolio, which is showing off just how the Finnish company is capable of looking at the bigger picture after spending the better part of the year before to deliver their Windows Phone flagship devices. There is nary a word on the kind of naming conventions that these budget friendly handsets will carry, but hopefully, a lower price point does not necessarily translate to a lousy name. I would suppose that emerging markets as well as third world countries would be the main candidates for these up and coming handsets.
