Nokia claims to have sold 70 million phones in the last 2 years

first_imgSince the Nokia’s revival two years ago, HMD Global has managed to reach across all the countries where the brand had a considerable fan following and eventually was successful in catering to their individual requirements carefully. The result is impressive — 70 million units happy customers for Nokia in its lifetime.At the Nokia 8.1 launch event, HMD Global proudly made the details of their successful run public. Britta Gerbracht, who looks after the marketing exercises for Nokia in Germany, has confirmed that the ‘new’ Nokia has achieved that impressive figure of 70 million units over the course of just two years. According to WinFuture.de, the number not only includes their latest Android One smartphones but also their entire feature phone lineup. This figure has pushed the brand into the world’s top 10 smartphone manufacturers list, which is indeed a remarkable achievement for a fairly new brand.However, the new Nokia also achieved what it intended before setting off on this journey — consumer trust. While the brand enjoys attention from its nostalgic fans, HMD Global says that their collaboration with Google has made people trust their products and stick to them longer. Gerbracht said that the Android One program has helped them deliver a satisfactory and consistent smartphone experience for an extended duration of time. With Android One, Nokia is able to deliver the latest in the world of Android to their phones, which means that even the older models get to enjoy the latest features, up-to-date performance and enhanced security features. Added to that the choice of premium yet robust material and Nokia says their customers are willing to hold onto their devices for at least two years, which is higher than the average of 1.5 years.advertisementAs we said, part of the Nokia crowd also includes the nostalgic fans who have retained their faith on the brand. Nokia says that the average age of the consumer who prefers a Nokia is 35 years old. This age group wants to relive the older Nokia experience provided by its successful models of N-series and Lumia series from the yesteryears. Also, around 80 per cent of this group is male. However, Nokia wants to change with their current portfolio and appeal with products that cater to the youngsters under the age of 20. Nokia will do that with the help of e-sports, whose popularity is on the rise amongst youngsters.Whenever it comes to higher sales figures, every manufacturer relies on its affordable offerings and Nokia’s success story isn’t any different. The company has found immense popularity with its ultra-affordable Android One smartphones. Nokia says that their 6.1 has been one of their most successful models for this year across major markets around the globe. The Nokia 7 Plus was also a bestseller for the brand while the Nokia 3.1 came up to be a noticeably successful model for the German market. And in order to keep these customers happy, Nokia has been trying its best to keep them updated with the latest in software enhancements from Google.However, Nokia also wants to have a fairly successful run in the flagship segment. Their last flagship offering – the Nokia 8 Sirocco, couldn’t capture the market’s fancy despite being offered with last year’s Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, a curved edge display and completely stock build of Android. While Nokia didn’t hint anything towards the highly anticipated penta-camera Nokia 9, they expressed their desire to establish their presence in the flagship territory with something that appeals globally.ALSO READ | OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition to launch with 50W Warp charger, will come with 10GB RAMlast_img read more
