EE supported network HMD Mobile + Nokia X20 and G10 unveiled by Finnish brand
HMD Global has announced the launch of its own MVNO service – HMD Mobile which is rolling out in the UK today.
HMD Mobile uses EE’s network to offer its users and guarantees fast network speeds and the best geographical coverage across the country.
HMD Mobile will be launching an app that gives customers a simple management system to oversee their plan. The app also offers data usage tracking, access to customer support, plan management/upgrades and monthly payments.
HMD Mobile plans are available directly from Nokia.com when purchasing a Nokia smartphone.
Plans on offer are:
- 10 GB data for £13 a month (launch promotion – £39 for 90 days)
- 15 GB data for £15 a month (launch promotion – £45 for 90 days)
- 25 GB data for £23 a month (launch promotion – £69 for 90 days)
HMD Global CEO Florian Seiche said: “We are listening to our fans. We have seen how much they are responding to online shopping and wanted to go one step further.
“The result is our own independent mobile connectivity service which guarantees transparency, flexibility, and competitive tariffs. We want our customers to love their phone experience and we are proud to continue to offer a seamless experience to our fans.”
HMD Global UK general manager Omar Riaz said: “When it comes to data and speed, reliability is critical to customers. Delivering on our promise to democratise mobile technology, we are now able to offer UK connectivity to mobile customers at a truly affordable price without long term commitments.
“This announcement will further cement HMD Global’s position within the telecoms industry as a company that delivers innovative solutions.”
Uswitch.com telecoms expert Ernest Doku added: “Nokia phones have always been about convenience and great value. Launching this virtual network is no different, as the set-up allows fans to manage their device and connection both more easily and reliably.
Over the past year, buying habits and behaviours in the mobile industry have shifted towards digital acquisition. Phone users are now less likely to visit a physical store to service or purchase their device.
“With an application set-up, where customers can tend to their data usage, access customer support, and make monthly payments for both their device and network, HMD Mobile is well-positioned to navigate a competitive market while aligning closely with a dedicated fanbase’s needs.”
Alongside its new MVNO service, HMD Global also announced the release of the Nokia X20 and Nokia G10 in the UK.
The Nokia X20 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G processor and features a 6.67-inch full-HD+ screen. The X20 also offers 18W fast-charging for its 4470mAh battery.
The smartphone boasts a 64MP quad-camera set-up and offers three years worth of Android upgrades.
The G10, meanwhile, is powered by the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset and features a 13MP triple-camera set-up.
The smartphone is 6.52 inches and offers 10W charging for its 5050mAh battery.
Nokia also reaffirmed its commitment to helping reduce carbon footprint by partnering with Ecologi, a UK-based company that helps reduce corporate carbon footprint, fund climate-positive projects and responsibly plants trees.
