HMD Global has just introduced new smartphone models from Nokia with a major emphasis on the repair and durability of the devices. The Nokia C32 and Nokia C22 hit the global market with up to three days of battery life, improved durability, and better image quality, while the Nokia G22 debuts as the company’s first smartphone with easy access for repair in collaboration with iFixit.
With the new devices, HMD Global highlights the first step in becoming the first major global smartphone supplier to bring manufacturing of its products to Europe, developing resources and processes to begin production of Nokia’s 5G phones in Europe as early as 2023.
“We are very pleased to announce this first step in our journey to bring 5G device manufacturing to Europe,” said Jean-Francois Baril, co-founder, president, and CEO of HMD Global. “The Nokia brand has a proud history in the European market, and with this move, we continue to strengthen our position as the only major European smartphone supplier,” he concluded.
Nokia G22: Focus on repairability
The Nokia G22 debuts with a triple camera setup and 50 MP main sensor, Unisoc T606 processor, display with a drop-shaped notch to house the front camera and biometric reader on the side, plus a 100% recycled plastic body, and OZO Playback audio system with improved bass and sharper sound.
HMD Global points out that this is the brand’s first smartphone designed with easy serviceability. In collaboration with the renowned iFixit, parts can be easily accessed to replace a damaged screen, faulty charging port, or low battery.
“People value durable, quality devices, and should not have to compromise their budget to get them. The new Nokia G22 has been developed with a repairable design to make it possible to keep it longer,” says Adam Ferguson, Global Product Lead at HMD Global.
