There will be no new Nokia smartphones. The premiere of the smartphone from HMD Global is being prepared for the end of February

As part of a strategic move, HMD Global intends to refresh its product line, leaving the Nokia brand for simpler mobile phones. The future line under the HMD brand will include smartphones, tablets and modern fully wireless headphones (TWS), the company’s website says.

In September 2023, the company decided on the creation of a new brand HMD (Human Mobile Devices) and plans to release devices under this name.

These changes have already been reflected on the company’s official website, as well as in social networks, where the mention of the Nokia brand has disappeared.

Under the new HMD brand, the first device to be unveiled will be a smartphone that is scheduled to premiere at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 in Barcelona, ​​which runs from February 26 to 29. According to unofficial data, the device will have a 108-megapixel camera and stylistically resemble the Nokia Lumia.

The company says it plans to introduce reliable, fun, safe, fast and affordable new phones. Most existing Nokia smartphones and tablets will be on sale at a discount while supplies last.

It should be noted that the Finnish company Nokia maintains a global leadership in the production of communication equipment and remains a pioneer in the field of advanced mobile technologies with more than 6,000 patents that are an integral part of the 5G standard.

Also recently, Nokia showcased its own line of robust smartphones for industrial use, which are in no way related to HMD Global.

HMD Global entered into a licensing agreement with Nokia Corporation in 2016, gaining the right to manufacture smartphones under its brand. This partnership gave HMD Global the opportunity to use the Nokia brand.
