Things turn ugly for Nokia in the last few years as they struggle to keep up with the sudden change of direction in the smartphone industry. At one point, it did look like it would be the end for Nokia but it looks like they managed to claw their way back to the top this year.
Canalys has just released their list of top five smartphone vendors in Europe in Q1 this year and while we were not surprised to see Apple and Samsung in the list, we were surprised that Nokia actually did sneak in to take the fifth spot with 1.6 million shipments beating out manufacturers like Moto, LG, and HTC.
Nokia will also have a few smartphones to offer including the Nokia 6, Nokia 8810 and Nokia 1. There were rumors about the Nokia X coming soon but we will have to wait and see.
Other manufacturer that made the cut includes Huawei and Xiaomi.
