Launch 1

ESPOO, FINLAND, 8 April 2021 - HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones and accessories, is today announcing its biggest launch to date featuring five new smartphones – Nokia X20, Nokia X10, Nokia G20, Nokia G10, and Nokia C20 – that have been streamlined into three distinct lines.

Top of the range Nokia X-series, intermediate G-series and entry-level C-series all deliver the quality experience that consumers have come to expect from the European mobile company. Products that are built to last inside and out thanks to industry-leading[1] security, superior durability, and the promise to provide the latest software, so you can keep your phone for longer.

Florian Seiche, CEO, HMD Global: “Today is more momentous than a regular product launch. The past 12 months have no doubt been challenging, yet they also gave us a moment to pause, think and prepare for the next big step in our start-up journey. As a Finnish company, our approach to technology and business is human-first and that is reflected in this new smartphone range. We want people love their phones. The launch of HMD Mobile – a milestone in our journey to a holistic provider of all things mobile – amplifies this, and it is only the beginning. We want you to trust that we put security at the heart of everything we do – Nokia smartphones come with security and software updates for extra piece of mind. And we want people to keep their phones for longer, thanks to our signature durability.”

Stephen Taylor, CMO, HMD Global: “For our team, innovative thinking is about unlocking high-value experiences to those who may have not had access to them before. Millions of people rely on a Nokia device for their everyday needs, from basic connectivity, to payments and creativity. We care about people trusting their phone. That’s why our industry-leading security offering runs across the new X, G and C ranges – everyone deserves to feel safe. We care about people keeping their phone for longer. These products are built to last inside and out, thanks to our upgrade promises and superior durability. And we want people to continue to love their phone. The X-series allows us to offer the benefits of our high-end partnerships with Qualcomm and ZEISS Optics. Finding that perfect balance between specs and affordability is what the G-series is all about. The C-series, meanwhile, thrives on delivering ultra-high value tech to the smartphone market. I’m proud of the niche we’ve carved within this extremely competitive market.”

 

X-series launches with Nokia X20 and Nokia X10

Sitting proudly at the top of the new portfolio are the Nokia X20 and Nokia X10. Pushing the boundaries of the mid-range, these smartphones provide experiences and quality far above their price tag. Both powered by the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 480 5G Mobile Platform which delivers series-defying performance and truly global 5G.[2] Nokia phones are built to last the test of life with durability and longevity at their core. This signature hardware durability is matched with three years of security and software updates, designed to encourage sustainable consumption, extend product lifecycle and reduce e-waste.

 

Nokia X20   Key Visual   Love It, Trust It, Keep It

Ruben Lehmann, Vice President of Europe, HMD Global:

“All Nokia phones are put through a tremendous amount of durability tests. So, by the time they are available to purchase, we are fully confident that our fans can trust them to work smoothly in their hands for years.

We understand that there is more that can be done to tackle these issues, which is why we are constantly working to develop our offering and continue building on these initial steps. After all, according to the European Environmental Bureau, if everyone in Europe used their smartphones for just one more year, by 2030, we could save as much carbon as taking two million cars off the road[3].”   

Presented on the clean AndroidTM One interface, these handsets come with Android 11 straight out of the box. Renowned ZEISS Optics and innovative AI solutions are at the heart of the impressively versatile imaging options. With a wide 6.67” Full HD+ punch-hole display, all of your content will be delivered on a crisp, eye-catching screen.

Nokia X20 and Nokia X10 also come with an extended three-year warranty (which exceeds the industry standard) and a 100% compostable case in the sales box – designed to be tough on the ground but soft on the earth, helping X-series go the distance.

The wall charger and headphones have been removed from the sales boxes, helping to tackle the 12,000 tonnes of e-waste generated by mobile phone chargers in the EU[4]. If needed, wall chargers can be purchased from Nokia.com[5]. All money raised will be donated to CLEAR RIVERS, a charity that works to clear plastic waste out of international waterways.

 

The Nokia X20 comes with an impressive 32MP front camera and 64MP quad camera on the rear. The all-new Dual Sight feature will activate two cameras simultaneously so you can capture multiple sides or multiple angles of the story. Then, enhance it further with a host of watermarking options.

Bringing exceptional value to the range, the Nokia X10 will please those with sub-£250 budgets. The 48MP quad-camera with Cinematic capture, is complemented with a full suite of pro editing tools, so you can personalise, style and share stand-out content that inspires others.

G-series launches with Nokia G20 and Nokia G10

The G-series represents the perfect balance of delivering on all your daily needs through straightforward problem-solving technology. Featuring on both phones in the G range is the three-day battery life[6] – the longest yet on a Nokia smartphone. The Nokia G20 is supported by the signature Android promise available on Nokia smartphones. That’s three years of monthly security updates to help keep your data as secure as possible and two years of OS updates. The first members join the G-series with signature longevity, improved security thanks to face and side fingerprint unlock and an impressive 6.5” teardrop display with a handy brightness boost.

The Nokia G20 is an on-the-go creative studio that fits in the palm of your hand. With a stunning 48MP camera, ample storage and immersive OZO surround audio, you can capture then relive your memorable moments in all their glory.

Nokia G10 has a triple rear camera and advanced imaging with AI-enhanced shooting modes, so your memories are perfectly preserved even from tricky low-light settings.

 

C-series adds Nokia C20

Bringing amazing value, the C-series makes high-quality smartphone technology accessible to everyone. The latest additions to the popular range bring forward much-loved features like the wide 6.5” HD+ display, at amazing price points. With Android 11TM (Go edition), adding up to 20% faster speeds, and improved security features, as well as Nokia smartphone durability with quarterly security updates for two years.

Nokia C20, the most affordable device from the new launches, is an ultra-high value smartphone that comes with standout features that include the front and rear LED flash to capture those special moments even in low-light. With superior build quality in a sleek Nordic design, it arrives to the portfolio as a result of rigorous testing.

 

HMD Mobile builds on the success of HMD Connect

Introducing the brand-new mobile network from HMD Global, HMD Mobile, offering simplicity and value to mobile customers. Entering its very first market as an independent mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), HMD Mobile follows the success of the brand’s global roaming solution, HMD Connect which launched in March 2020.

Combining the value of a monthly subscription with the flexibility of subscription charging, HMD Mobile provides reliable mobile connectivity that people can buy from the same place as their device.

Plus, the HMD Mobile app gives customers a simple management system. Developed for quick and easy access to support for your phone and your data, the application offers everything you need to manage your plan within a clean and intuitive user interface.

Janne Lehtosalo, VP of Services, HMD Global: “HMD Mobile is built on the foundation of trust, simplicity and flexibility where you only pay for the features you will use every day with no fixed-term subscriptions or premiums. This momentous launch presents our ambition to become the ultimate one-stop-shop for all your mobile needs.”

 

Nokia audio accessories range expanded with Nokia Lite Earbuds

Featuring easy-to-learn touch controls for music, voice assistant and calls, Nokia Lite Earbuds go on sale globally today. Echoing the premium design and impressive battery life on Nokia phones, the pocket-size case will carry around six additional charges to your trusty buds.[7] The equivalent to 36 hours of blissful playback, almost double the industry standard.
