35 million #Nokia feature phones shipped in 2016; 9% market share

Microsoft and HMD shipped 35.3 million Nokia-branded feature phones in 2016, says Strategy Analytics. That’s a sharp decline from the 90 million units shipped in 2015. Nokia-branded feature phones took 8.9% market share, behind Samsung with 13.2% market share.

HMD officially took over the licence for the Nokia brand on feature phones from Microsoft last December, and is currently selling 6 different feature phones across the world, including the Nokia 150.  One feature phone we are really excited about is the rumored new version of Nokia 3310. The new 3310 is set to be announced this Sunday at 16:30 CET, and should come with a modern, but familiar design for a price of 60 euros (64 dollars).
