Nokia 8, along with other Nokia Android smartphones, penetrates PH’s robust smartphone market
Ending weeks of anticipation, HMD Global unveils Nokia’s new flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8, today at the Intramuros Ballroom, Manila House, Taguig.
Nokia 8’s entry into the Philippine market reflects Nokia’s vision of growing its smartphone business in the country, the fastest-growing smartphone market in the ASEAN. The Philippine launch comes on the heels of a successful global launch that demonstrates continued support for the brand.
“The Philippines has always been a strong market for Nokia. Filipinos, particularly those in the provinces, have a strong affinity for Nokia phones, which have always delivered on quality, reliability and innovation. We want to continue broadening and deepening our reach here, especially in untapped provinces that need high-quality mobile communication technologies,” said Shannon Mead, HMD Global Country Manager, Philippines.
HMD Global, the new home of Nokia phones, is looking to position Nokia as the go-to smartphone for Filipinos across the different market segments. “Nokia will continue to leverage quality and innovation to serve the thriving smartphone market,” Mead shared.
