HMD Global teases a new Nokia phone launch on May 29

HMD Global has started teasing a new Nokia phone launch on May 29. The company has posted a teaser on Twitter with a hashtag #ChargedUp that suggests a handset with a large battery or charging related improvements. It is expected that the awaited global variant of the Nokia X6 could be launched at the event.

According to the teaser posted by Nokia, the May 29 launch is happening in Moscow at 7:40 PM MSK (10:10 PM IST). The teaser doesn’t reveal any particular model that HMD will launch at the event. However, the ‘ChargedUp’ hashtag suggests that the company is pointing to an enhanced battery or some charging-related improvements. Interestingly, Nokia X6, which was launched in China earlier this month, comes with Quick Charge 3.0.

If we take a look at all the previous rumors, the Nokia 6 global launch is very likely at the May 29 event. HMD Global’s CPO Juho Sarvikas suggested the development of the Nokia X6 global variant by hosting a Twitter poll last week. As per another report, two other devices in the Nokia X series, dubbed as the Nokia X5 and Nokia X7 could also be launched globally along with the Nokia X6.
