Nokia smartphones are poised for a comeback after former managers at the Finnish company licensed the handset brand from Microsoft and struck up partnerships with Google and phone manufacturer Foxconn. Nokia was once the world's dominant cellphone-maker but missed the shift to smartphones and then chose Microsoft's unpopular Windows operating system for its "Lumia" range.Nokia quit smartphones in 2014 by selling its handset activities to Microsoft to focus on mobile network equipment.HMD Global, led by Nokia veteran Arto Nummela, wants to launch its first Nokia smartphone in the early part of next year using Google's Android operating system.HMD Thursday took over the feature phone business that Nokia Corp. sold to Microsoft.The Nokia name is still on a tenth of the feature phones sold around the world, though in recent years it ceded ground to Samsung and TCL, maker of Alcatel-brand phones, as well as smaller players, according to market researcher Strategy Analytics.
