Nokia Will Launch Its New Flagship Smartphone On November 11th!
HMD Global, which produces smartphones under the Nokia brand, is said to have a very complex relationship with flagship products.
It turned out that the devices named Nokia 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3, which were said to be released as a continuation of the series after the launch of the Nokia 9 PureView, did not actually exist. While normal companies release flagship devices, they offer such devices to their customers in a series. However, the Nokia company does not seem to have reached this culture.
However, in a few months everything will change. The HMD product manager in China said the launch of the new flagship will take place on November 11.
Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about the upcoming product. HMD Global’s product manager in China, Zhang Yucheng, reported that the company is preparing a flagship smartphone.
Considering the new naming system for Nokia smartphones, it has been reported that the name Nokia 9.3 will definitely not be used and the company will launch the new series with a different name.
