A few days back, HMD Global unveiled 4 new Nokia devices that it plans to launch in Kenya next quarter (Q4 2022). We have not seen much from Nokia in Kenya this year as much as we have seen the other phone manufacturers.
The company hopes to change that soon with the four devices it unveiled this week. These are the Nokia X30 5G, Nokia G60 5G, Nokia C31 and the Nokia T21.
With the unveiling of these 4 devices, HMD Global also introduced Circular, a revolutionary new subscription service with sustainability at its core.In a statement, the company said, “We are incentivising people to keep their phones for longer with a range of eco-friendly rewards. Circular minimises the negative impact phone ownership can have on the planet by keeping smartphones and tablets out of landfill and giving them a second life. Within our subscription model, Nokia devices go through recycling, refurbishing and re-subscribing or they go to a charitable cause that needs it the most. In addition, it provides people with complete freedom to choose and change their subscription. Any accidental damage, loss, or theft will be taken care of without a separate monthly cost, and a quick replacement arranged if needed.”
Florian Seiche, CEO, HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones: “At HMD Global, home of Nokia phones, we want people to keep their phones for longer and this can be seen across three areas. We have introduced Circular, a truly circular subscription model that rewards people who extend the lifecycle of their phones. We build our devices with more recycled materials and continue to boost our longevity heritage with software and security updates. And we are working hard to live this approach as a company, with our business-wide sustainability pledges that shows our commitment to continue to work harder to protect tomorrow.”
The Nokia X30 5G
Nokia X30 5G is built with a 100% recycled aluminium frame and a 65% recycled plastic back, making it our most eco-friendly smartphone, right down to the box. Using 100% FSC-certified and 70% recycled paper box at a reduced packaging size saves on transportation CO2 emissions, made possible by removing the charger to tackle e-waste.
With zero compromise on the phone’s performance, Nokia X30 5G comes with premium features including our best photo experience to date. The 50MP PureView camera uses Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and AI to capture stunning ultra-wide angle and vibrant night time shots. The camera is protected by scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.

Complete with a 6.58” FHD+ 120Hz display for super-smooth scrolling and a 50MP AI triple camera, Nokia G60 5G makes premium experiences more accessible.
The Nokia C31
tHE Nokia C31 is the latest smartphone from ther C-series.
