Nokia launched cell phones earlier this year and surprised users. The handsets have good technical specifications and compete with other Androids in the market. Now, according to a new report on the handset market in the second quarter of the year in the United Arab Emirates, Nokia was able to place two models on the best-selling list.
According to what was revealed, the company became the second largest smartphone seller in the second quarter of the year in the United Arab Emirates with 22.9% market share, second only to Samsung, which owns 34.5%. Apple is in third place with 15.5% of the market, followed by Lenovo with 5.4% and Huawei with 3.2%.
In addition, according to what has been revealed, Nokia has managed to place two different models on the list of second-quarter smartphones in the United Arab Emirates. They are Nokia 105 and 108, since the “smart” models were not yet available for purchase in the country. The best-selling smartphone in the same period was the iPhone 6, while the iPhone 7 appears in third place.
The Nokia 8 has reached several countries. And HMD Global Oy has already started publishing material to promote its new flagship. Earlier this month, the company’s official YouTube channel features two new videos, both highlighting the Dual Sight feature.
With this feature, you can record videos and take pictures with the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Recently published commercials are targeting Poland and South Africa. The second still has a partnership with Vodacom, the operator that sells the device in the African country and, despite being in English, shows much less about the device, while the second has more time showing the features, but is in Polish.
The flagship features 5.3-inch IPS LCD screen with QHD resolution, 835 Snapdragon processor, 4GB or 6GB RAM, 64 or 128GB internal storage, dual 13 + 13MP main camera, 13MP front camera, biometric sensor, IP54 certification and much more. The official price is 599 euros.
Nokia’s revenue is down (-10% in 2016) and its losses continue to widen. As a result, a new global savings plan of 1.2 billion euros is in the pipes.
