February 05, 2024 – Following a series of teaser videos that hinted at a potential move away from the “Nokia” branding, HMD Global has sparked mixed reactions among the media and Nokia fans alike. The speculation was fueled by the company’s apparent intention to introduce its own line of smartphones, distinct from the Nokia-branded devices it had previously been known for.
However, in a recent video posted on YouTube, HMD Global clarified its stance as the manufacturer of “Nokia-branded smartphones.” The video’s description further suggests that the company intends to continue releasing devices under the Nokia brand, much to the relief of its loyal customer base.
In the video, HMD Global highlights the three key features of its Nokia-branded smartphones: durability, easy repairability, and resistance to damage from falls. The company also promotes its official website as the go-to destination for customers to purchase “Nokia-branded phones.”
While it remains unclear whether HMD Global will indeed continue to roll out more Nokia-branded smartphones in the future, one thing is certain: the company is gearing up to unveil multiple smartphones under its own brand at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, from February 26 to 29, 2024. Among these, the flagship model is rumored to be equipped with a 108-megapixel OIS camera, a feature that is sure to attract the attention of photography enthusiasts and tech savvy consumers alike.
