Nokia is just one of many major mobile brands you'd normally expect to be in the limelight at an event like Berlin's IFA trade show, but because 2020 is not a normal year by any stretch of the imagination, whatever HMD Global may have originally planned to unveil a couple of weeks ago must now wait.
Nokia 8.3 5G as well.While HMD is not yet ready to reveal the identity of the Nokia-branded devices set to break cover next Tuesday, we're fairly certain the plural form is fitting in this particular case.
