It’s hard to believe that Nokia — the famous Finnish phone manufacturer — has been in the electronics industry since the early 1960s. Even more Amazingly, the company has managed to cling to its iconic logo for over four decades.

Now, for the first time in nearly 45 years, the once mighty smartphone corporation will change its branding. Last Sunday, before the Mobile World Congress Barcelona opening day, the company revealed a new corporate identity. Out goes the iconic blue typeface, and in its place, a sleek, modern replacement.

“We are updating our strategy, and, as a key enabler, we are also refreshing our brand to reflect who we are today: a business-to-business technology innovation leader pioneering the future where networks meet cloud […] In most people’s minds, we are still a successful mobile phone brand, but this is not what Nokia is about,” says Pekka Lundmark, Nokia CEO.

The company’s phones haven’t been made by the “real Nokia” since Microsoft’s massive $7 billion takeover back in 2014. After the tech giant parted company with Nokia in 2016, former Nokia executives acquired the rights to use the brand for smartphones and tablets. There’s no word yet as to whether future phones will continue to sport the classic logo or not, but many nostalgic tech enthusiasts would surely be disappointed to see the blue font disappear.
