Microsoft (2012)

On September 2, 2013, Microsoft announced that it would acquire Nokia's mobile device business. This was completed on April 25, 2014, forming Microsoft's mobile division named Microsoft Mobile, which focus on design, development, manufacture and distribution of mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers and related accessories. Microsoft Mobile uses 2012 Microsoft logo, which resembles four squares with the colors of the then-current Windows logo. Microsoft slowly discontinues their Lumia devices in 2016 and sold their license to use the Nokia name in feature phones to HMD Global. They have been dissolved in October 2017 but eventually, in 2019 Microsoft returned to the smartphone hardware business under the Microsoft Surface division by unveiling the Surface Duo. The Surface Duo runs on Android instead of Windows 10 Mobile and it will be released in Holiday 2020.
