Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President for North America, HMD Global, said in a statement:

I am so excited to be back in the U.S. and thrilled to be working with our world class carrier partners. After years of building capabilities that cater to some of the most demanding smartphone customers in the world – and establishing our brand-new global R&D Centre in Finland – it's a natural next step to come back to the U.S. to lead this talented team. A Nokia smartphone is the perfect choice for our prepaid and value consumers; with a new vision and focus on 5G, we're bringing devices that balance cost, usability, and future-proofing to our fans in a completely different segment.

  • Hmmm this or the Pixel 4a ?
  • Hmm maybe it's time to replace the broken 6.1 with the 8.3
  • It certainly looks nice. Hope the camera does well.
  • The camera will probably be mediocre like every other phone from HMD Global and Android One has been a total failure that only HMD Global is keeping the program going since Motorola and Xiaomi have turned their back one program.
  • I think the should have been integrated with a better gaming chipset. maybe the Mediatek Helio G90T instead of the SD 765G. The performance rate of the Helio chipset is better and the same would have made a huge difference in the pricing of the phone as well.
  • Can't wait. I hope this schedule applies to Canada as well.
