HMD Global Oy, the Finnish mobile phone company that has exclusive rights to sell Nokia brand phones, teased the launch of a battery-focused smartphone set to be launched on Tuesday, May 29.
HMD took to micro-blogging social networking service Twitter earlier this week to coax the general public: “it’s time to get #ChargedUp,” with the suggestion being that the forthcoming Android OS-powered device will either boasts a fast charging support as one of its major selling points or otherwise be focused on its battery capacity. The actuality of the launching event itself has already been corroborated last week when the Finnish company unveiled the event that will be taking place in Moscow, Russia.
The smartphone vendor has recently hinted that its Nokia X6 mid-range handset is slated to be released outside the Chinese market in the near future and while that certain consumer electronic product comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 support, so does the broad majority of other smartphones Nokia debuted in recent times.
Meanwhile, the bezel-less form-factor design and value-oriented aspect of the Nokia X6 have also been introduced as much larger highlights of the phone in China, making the likelihood of HMD teasing an international version of it with a #ChargedUp hashtag is unlikely. Just over a couple of weeks ago, there were three Nokia devices identified with model number the TA-1075, TA-1105, and the TA-1116 were certified by Russian telecommunication authority, with one or more of them possibly being among the items the firm is planning to release on to the global market next week.
HMD Global kicked off the reestablishment of the Nokia brand for smartphones early last year. Its 2017 smartphones were shipped with a vaguely modified version of Android OS, all of its 2018 offerings released outside of China so far have been introduced as part of Google’s Android One initiative, featuring a stock version of the world’s most popular mobile platform. Nokia is selling its new smartphones alongside a promise of timely software updates, both security patches and major operating system updates.
