17 Nokia Devices Emerge, Sparking Confusion

Oh, boy. Did you see this? 17 new Nokia devices just popped up online. Yeah, you heard that right. And it’s kinda throwing everyone for a loop. Why, you ask? Well, it looks like HMD Global is shaking things up big time. They’re saying “see ya” to the Nokia brand. From here on out, it’s all about launching devices under the ‘HMD’ name. And get this – even the Nokia Mobile social media channels have vanished into thin air.

So, what’s the deal here? Honestly, it’s a bit of a head-scratcher. HMD Global and Nokia are tied together until 2026. But, it’s clear as day – the Nokia name is getting the boot. There was a little whisper that some Nokia phones might still hit the shelves offline. But, we all thought those were just the old models hanging around.

Now, here’s the million-dollar question. Could HMD Global actually drop some new Nokia-branded smartphones alongside its own HMD-branded gear? It seems like a long shot. I mean, why would they ditch the Nokia Mobile socials and give their website a total makeover? Doesn’t add up, right?

Maybe, just maybe, these were the devices HMD Global had in the works before they decided to switch gears. It’s a possibility. But, who really knows? By the way, GSMChina was the one who spotted these devices, just in case you were curious.

And what we’ve got here are a bunch of model numbers. Nothing too exciting. We’re talking TA-1603, TA-1607, TA-1609, TA-1610… all the way to TA-1628. Oh, and they skipped a few numbers in the sequence, just to keep us on our toes.

These models showed up in the IMEI Database, just to clear any confusion. But, the listings? They’re pretty tight-lipped. No juicy details, just model numbers.

Now, here’s something to look forward to. HMD Global is gearing up to unveil the very first ‘HMD’ devices at this year’s MWC in Barcelona. That’s happening later this month. And honestly, I’m crossing my fingers we’ll get the lowdown on the whole Nokia situation. Things seemed straightforward until now, but who knows? HMD Global might just have a few tricks up its sleeve.
