Despite the growth at the tech arm, Nokia saw overall revenues slide two percent to €23.15 billion a year ago on account of a continued slowdown at its main networks business.

In a brief statement, Nokia said it has initiated a strategic review of its Digital Health business, which is part of Nokia Technologies and that the review "may or may not result in any transaction or other changes". "The strategic review of the Digital Health business may or may not result in any transaction or other changes", the company said in its press release, which means that it's going to consider all options on the table so a sale is not necessary.

The former mobile phone giant set up its digital health unit in 2016 around the time it purchased the wearables firm Withings for $170 million.
