Nokia (NOK) will reportedly name its Indian-born networks boss, Rajeev Suri, as its next CEO on Tuesday and outline what its strategy will be following the sale of its handset business to Microsoft, which could close today.

Suri has been considered the leading candidate to become Nokia's CEO after bringing profitability to Nokia Solutions & Networks (NSN) with a major overhaul.

Nokia could also announce on Tuesday how much it plans to pay out to shareholders with the cash that it's receiving from Microsoft.
