HMD Global has released four Nokia smartphones - Nokia 6, Nokia 8, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 since the debut of this year. In addition to these, the company is also focused on launching two more models - the Nokia 2 and Nokia 9 by the end of this year.
We already know that the Nokia Android phones are well received among the buyers due to the brand name and the reasonable price points. However, there is no confirmation on how successful the company has been when it comes to the retail sales. Though the same has not been announced officially by HMD, the company will be aware of how competitive it has been in the market.
Of course, the sales of the Nokia Android smartphones cannot be compared to those of Samsung and Apple. But which company would not wish to compete with these big players in the smartphone arena?
As per a Nokioteca report in September, HMD's Chief Marketing Officer, Pekka Rantal, gave an idea of the sales that have happened so far. It was said that they are really happy about the sales as they have been selling millions of Nokia Android smartphones and tens of millions of the feature phones.
This figure is further confirmed by a NokiaPowerUser report that points out that the Nokia Mobile Support app that is available in the Google Play Store shows between 1 million and 5 million downloads. This gives an idea of the overall download numbers of app tipping that millions of Nokia Android smartphones have been sold till date.
Given that the Nokia smartphones are among the market first to get the Android Oreo update, this sales figure should not be coming in as a huge surprise. The company is all set to roll out the Oreo update to its flagship Nokia 8 smartphone by the end of October. The other Nokia smartphones will also get this recent Android update by the end of this year.
