High Performance Mobile Platforms

Drive improvements in performance to radically improve the performance to power ratio, empower new sensing capabilities, and extend the platform and architecture beyond the physical boundaries of a single device, resulting in a superior mobile platform for Nokia.

Research is centered in Helsinki and Tampere, and complemented by teams in Palo Alto and Cambridge UK, is focused on:

  • Ubiquitous interoperable architectures (extending the single device)
  • Energy efficient computing architectures
  • Nano-based enablers for sensing and computing
  • Mobile platform security & privacy
  • Holistic system-level power management

Teams working on High Performance Mobile Platforms include:

  • Energy & Power Management
  • Performance Efficient Mobile Platform
  • Ubiquitous Mobility Interoperability
  • 3D Platform
  • Ubiquitous architectures
  • Trustworthy mobile platforms
  • Rich Context
  • Computing structures
  • Enabling Morph
  • Nano sensing

Working with these teams are several of our Open Innovation partners:






Computing Requirements

As the capabilities of mobile phones increase, so does their need for more storage and computing power. Consumption of digital media such as images or video requires greater storage space. Being able to recognize characters or process images needs higher powered CPUs. Over time, future mobiles will have the power of today's laptop computers or even super computers, which could enable amazing new capabilities to come.



Power, Sensing, Connection, Performance Research in High Performance Mobile Platforms is centered around power consumption, connectivity, sensing and increased computational power. The mobile phone itself will soon become part of a network of distributed computers, both adding to and benefiting from the power of capable peers and servers in the cloud.
