HMD Global has confirmed that its new smartphones unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018 will come to South Africa.
This includes the remastered Nokia 8810 built on the KaiOS platform, the second-generation Nokia 6, the Nokia 7+, and the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
The company has announced international launch dates and approximate pricing for the devices, but South African launch dates and prices are yet to be confirmed.
Under current market conditions the Nokia 8 Sirocco could sell for around R12,999, but its eventual price is dependent on the strength of the rand against the US dollar.
VAT is also increasing to 15% later this year, which may cause prices to change slightly.
HMD Global provided the following international launch dates and approximate prices for its new smartphones:
- Nokia 8810 – €79 (May 2018)
- Nokia 1 – $85 (April 2018)
- Nokia 6 (2nd gen) – €279 (April 2018)
- Nokia 7+ – €399 (April 2018)
- Nokia 8 Sirocco – €749 (April 2018)
