Nokia Smartphone Launch Event Set for February 23, HMD Global Sends Out Invites
HMD World has announced that it’s hosting a press event on February 23 ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2020. The Nokia-brand licensee is anticipated to unveil new smartphones at the event, and it’s probably that we are going to see multiple gadgets as the company has been largely quiet so far this year. Rumours indicate that we’ll see the launch of Nokia 8.2 5G, Nokia 5.2, Nokia 1.3, and a brand new Nokia ‘Original‘ smartphone.
As per the invitations shared by HMD Global, the pre-MWC event of the company will kick off at 4pm local time (8:30pm IST) on February 23 in Barcelona. As mentioned, we would see the launch of as many as four new smartphones.
