From a station start, HMD Global has expelled 4 well-received Nokia handsets (the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8) with dual some-more Android-powered inclination suspected to be expelled before a finish of a year. But how successful has a association been in terms of sell sales?
The easiest approach to answer a doubt would be to ask HMD Global. The Finnish start-up will know that answer, though in a rival smartphone marketplace it has been demure to offer tough numbers in a initial year of open operation. Sales numbers would not be allied to that of Samsung or Apple, a dual manufacturers that HMD Global would wish to be compared to, so a doubt has always been smoothly parried when we have asked.
That Finnish haven is solemnly starting to melt. Speaking to Nokioteca, HMD’s Chief Marketing Officer Pekka Rantal has given a ballpark figure on sales “…but we are unequivocally happy about a sales, we have been offered already millions of Nokia smartphones and tens of millions when it comes to simple Nokia phones.”
That figure can be reliable in a rather extraordinary way, as Nokia Power User points out. The Nokia Mobile Support app is accessible in a Google Play App Store, that offers a public-facing denote of download numbers. And that value? Between 1 million and 5 million downloads.
With a Nokia handsets approaching to be some of a initial handsets to collect adult a Android Oreo update, we might be means to extrapolate HMD’s numbers from a uptake of a 8 vital chronicle of Android during Oct and November, nonetheless this will turn some-more false as Oreo is propagated by other manufacturer’s handsets.
