A while back, we got word that HMD Global – which currently licenses the brand Nokia for mobile device sales and marketing – has moved forward with establishing its own line of Android phones, which will be separate from Nokia’s own device range. There was even a leaked diagram that pointed to the existence of the “M-Kopa X1,” which is speculated to be a rebranded variant of the Nokia C32.
More recently however, it looks like HMD Global has continued working on its debut handset, which might be unveiled in the coming months. Spotted by the folks over at 91Mobiles, the device comes with the model number N159V, and features a design that strongly indicates a budget-friendly price.
Based on the image, the phone is entirely devoid of any Nokia branding, instead bearing an HMD logo on the rear panel. Other design details include a dual-camera array on the rear panel, in addition to a hole-punch selfie camera. Aside from its design and branding though, no other details have been mentioned so far.
Other information such as pricing is currently unknown, although the leak speculates that the handset might be launched in India sometime in April – with that being said, it should be interesting to see how HMD Global will market its new smartphone, and what lies in store for Nokia’s mobile device business.
