To return in smartphone production, Nokia has leased its name to Foxconn, which was announced earlier this year. Foxconn also purchased Sharp a few months ago, which may give an explanation as to why the image could be the same as the Sharp Aquos 1. Many have suggested that the Sharp Aquos P1 will be rebranded as the Nokia P1 for launch in Europe later this year, but there is no solid evidence to back this up.
