HMD Global has announced the arrival of three Nokia smartphones, Nokia G22, Nokia C32, and Nokia C22. All the phones offer up to three days of battery life, with improved imaging and durability in the C-series and the first Nokia smartphone, the Nokia G22, to come with repairability at its core, including a global collaboration with iFixit. The company also has plans to manufacture its devices in Europe.
Sanmeet Singh Kochhar, Vice President, India and MENA for HMD Global, said, “Nokia continues to put its customers first with the launch of three new devices in the UAE. The Nokia C22, Nokia C32, and Nokia G22 reflect our strong manufacturing lineage, exceptional craftsmanship, and security updates. In addition, the long battery life, superior camera performance, and durability of all three devices make them a competitive addition to the market, and we are excited for our fans to experience them when they hit the stores in April.”
Nokia G22 is the first Nokia smartphone purposefully designed with repairability at its core, taking signature Nokia phone longevity to the next level. In collaboration with iFixit, a global repair community, you can easily access repair guides and affordable parts to replace a damaged display, bent charging port, or flat battery on Nokia G22.
The new G-series smartphone also comes with a 100% recycled plastic back, and OZO Playback that delivers enhanced bass and clearer sound, plus 2 years of Android OS upgrades, three years of monthly security updates, and an extended three-year warranty at no extra cost.
Packing a 50MP camera and stellar imaging algorithms, Nokia C32 brings advanced imaging to an even more affordable price point. It comes in a refined design with a toughened glass finish and elegant, straight sidewalls that give the C-series a premium feel. Arriving with the latest Android 13 right out of the box, Nokia C32 delivers the most personalised software to date for a modern smartphone experience.
Nokia C22 arrives with exceptional build quality that outperforms the competition4 in rigorous free fall tests. Nokia C22 is prepared to take on the unexpected moments of daily life thanks to IP52 splash and dust protection, toughened 2.5D display glass, and rigid metal chassis housed within a strong polycarbonate unibody design. It’s packed with powerful imaging algorithms in an improved dual 13MP camera that makes capturing memories with crisp detail possible in any light.
Adam Ferguson, Head of Product Marketing, HMD Global, “People value long-lasting, quality devices and they shouldn’t have to compromise on price to get it. The new Nokia G22 is purposefully built with a repairable design so you can keep it even longer, and with advanced imaging on Nokia C32 and improved durability on Nokia C22, we are bringing even more value to the C-series.”
In a move to further strengthen its security promises, HMD Global takes the first steps in a journey to become the first major global smartphone provider to bring manufacturing to Europe. In the first stage of this journey, the company is developing capabilities and processes to bring 5G Nokia device production to Europe in 2023. These new developments are a continuation of HMD Global’s commitment to conducting secure and transparent operations in Europe.
