HMD Global sends out invites to May 29 event, new Nokia devices likely coming
HMD Global has confirmed it will be holding a launch event on May 29. Earlier today the Finland-based manufacturer launched the highly-anticipated Nokia X6 as a China exclusive, but it appears the company’s next event will focus on its international consumers. After all, come May 29, HMD Global will be holding a large media event in Moscow, Russia.

The event itself will be held between 7 PM and 9 PM local time and will see three major executives in attendance. Specifically, the manufacturer’s CEO, CMO, and CPO will all be present, suggesting major product launches could be on the horizon. So far this year, the Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7 Plus, and Nokia 8 Sirocco have all been launched. However, 2018 editions of the Nokia 2 and 3 are expected to arrive sometime this year. Furthermore, one HMD Global executive also recently teased the impending launch of the Nokia 5 (2018), which could mean it could be making an official appearance at the event.

In addition to all of this, recent rumors point towards an international Nokia X line of devices. Despite the fact that the new Nokia X6 is a China-exclusive, HMD Global is reportedly preparing two new offerings for international markets, dubbed the Nokia X5 and Nokia X7, both of which could make an appearance in Russia.

Ultimately, HMD Global is unlikely to confirm what exactly will be announced on May 29. However, considering last year’s Nokia 3 went on sale in June and the popular Nokia 5 arrived in July, successors to these two smartphones seem like the most likely candidates for the event. When it comes to the 2018 edition of the Nokia 2, though, it may be a bit too early. After all, the original Nokia 2 went on sale just six months ago.
