In modern times, the smartphone is very important in the lives of users. In fact, many people can not detach from their smartphones for an hour. They are useful for both work and entertainment. However, Nokia CEO, Pekka Lundmark, claims that by 2030, a lot of people will put down their smartphones.

In the current 5G era, smartphones are still the most important device for accessing 5G networks. Pekka Lundmark believes that the situation will be different after the commercial use of 6G networks. At that time, smartphones will definitely not be the most common devices, and everyone will use devices such as smart glasses. Access to the Internet, and even implanted chips and electronic devices in the human body.
However, Pekka Lundmark did not specify what these electronic products that can make people put down their mobile phones look like. In 2030, the technical requirements of 6G networks will also change a lot. It will require massive computing power, and at the same time, the network speed will be faster. It should be about 100 times or even 1,000 times faster than that of the current network.

Nokia withdraws from the flagship smartphone market
In recent years, Nokia has not been doing well in the smartphone market. Its smartphones especially the flagships have not been making waves. As the hegemony in the mobile phone market, its experience is not a good one. On March 8, Adam Ferguson, head of product marketing at HMD Global, admitted in an interview that the company has withdrawn from the competition for flagship phones. “It doesn’t make sense for us to make an $800 phone,” he said.
The company did not quit the flagship market without attempts to return to the high-end market. In 2019, Nokia launched the imaging flagship “Nokia 9 PureView”, but the market response to this machine was flat. After this, Nokia is no longer obsessed with the high-end market but focused on the feature phone and low-end mobile phone market. In addition, due to patent disputes, Nokia had to withdraw most of its smartphones from the market in some countries.
Recently, Nokia quietly released the Nokia G21. This is a low-end model, equipped with a UNISOC T606 processor. In addition to the release of the new machine, last month, the Nokia PureBook Pro notebook was also released. It can be seen that in the smartphone and notebook market, Nokia has not completely given up.
According to Nokia’s previously announced 2021 financial report, Nokia’s annual net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders was 1.623 billion euros, a year-on-year increase of 164.33%; operating income was 22.202 billion euros, a year-on-year increase of 1.6%.
