So, here’s the scoop, folks. HMD Global’s shaking things up, stepping away from launching new Nokia-branded smartphones. Yep, you heard that right. Instead, they’re focusing on their own HMD-branded devices. And guess what? Some of these gadgets have already been sneakily teased by HMD.
Now, hold onto your hats. A fresh report’s just landed, hinting at not one, not two, but three HMD smartphones hitting the scene during the ‘first phase’. This juicy tidbit comes courtesy of 91mobiles, who’ve got the lowdown from those in-the-know industry sources. These are the same folks who’ve been spot-on with Nokia leaks in the past.
But wait, there’s more. Despite this new direction, HMD Global isn’t ditching Nokia-branded phones entirely. Nope, they’re sticking around for a bit longer. However, don’t hold your breath for any new models. Also, a little birdie told us that Nokia phone sales will be kept to offline stores. Interesting strategy, right?
Let’s dive a bit deeper into those three upcoming phones. Word on the street is that one of them will be super affordable. As for the other two? Well, the jury’s still out, but don’t expect them to break the bank either. We’re all ears for more details.
Switching gears, HMD Global’s gearing up for a big reveal at MWC 2024 in Barcelona. That’s where they plan to unveil their first ‘HMD’ devices. Will all three make their grand debut there? Only time will tell.
And hey, have you seen those teasers on their official website? If not, you’re missing out. They’ve dropped three images that have us all buzzing with excitement. Each one offers a glimpse into what HMD’s cooking up.
Now, about those images. The first one’s a bit of a head-scratcher, looking nothing like the other two. But here’s where it gets interesting. The second and third photos? They’re giving us major Nokia Lumia vibes. Remember those colorful, Windows Phone-powered devices? Ah, nostalgia.
These teased devices are quite the lookers. The first one flaunts flat sides, a flat backplate, and probably a flat display too. The others? They’ve got flat tops and bottoms, but the sides curve in a way that’s hard to ignore.
With the Mobile World Congress just around the corner, we’re on the edge of our seats for more info. Who knows? HMD Global might even drop a few more teasers before the big event. Stay tuned, folks.
