HMD Global at an event in Russia today unveiled a minor refresh to some of its budget offerings: the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 2. The company’s last year models met with modest success and it is building on them by improving them in every aspect possible.
Nokia today launched the Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition, Nokia 6 (2018), and the Nokia 7 Plus in India. The Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition and the Nokia 7 Plus were first unveiled by the company at MWC 2018 in February.
Alongside the Nokia 1 and Nokia 6 (2018), the HMD Global-owned Nokia also unveiled the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 1, its first Android Go (Oreo) smartphone. Additionally, the company also unveiled a 2018 variant of the Nokia 6 with powerful internals, quick charge, and an improved camera.
Earlier this year, the HMD-owned Nokia launched the Nokia 2 — a 99€ budget Android smartphone featuring only 1GB of RAM and running Android 7.1 Nougat. The handset was panned for its poor launch timing since despite being an ultra-low budget handset, it did not take advantage of Google’s Android Go program to possibly deliver better performance.
Nokia and HMD Global have been busy launching Android-based smartphones for months now, and while the Nokia 8 has served as the pair of company’s flagship for a little while now, it looks like a new contender is on the way.
At an event in Delhi, India, Nokia today launched the Nokia 2. The cheapest handset from the company till date, the Nokia 2 is also the first low-end Android device to make use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 chip.
Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 7, a new mid-range handset from the company packing some features found in its current flagship — the Nokia 8. The handset comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, 3000mAh battery, and a 16MP rear shooter with an f/1.8 aperture.
Last week, Nokia unveiled its flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8. While the company did announce the price and availability of the phone in certain markets, it did not mention anything about its US and China launch. Now, as it turns out, Nokia will not be bringing Nokia 8 to either the US or China.
The Nokia 6 is the current* spearhead of the brand’s return to the smartphone world in 2017 and follows several years of being locked out, following the Microsoft buyout of its Devices division in 2013. It’s still Nokia in terms of logo and branding, it’s still designed in Finland, it’s still made like a tank, but the actual firm behind it is HMD Global and all the manufacturing is in China. So take the ‘Nokia’ branding with just a pinch of salt.
