Many companies pulled out of the MWC 2020 as a result of the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus. HMD Global also pulled out, claiming the spread of the virus as a reason.
However, even though HMD withdrew from the event, the company still has plans to unveil its devices. The company planned to release the Nokia 10 at the MWC 2020 in Barcelona. HMD is also working on releasing an Android WearOS smartwatch as well as a feature phone. Now, the company is reportedly planning to launch the devices at an alternative event.
According to HMD Global:
“We are still planning to showcase our preparations for participation at Barcelona MWC and will share details on how we will do this.”
There is not yet a fixed new date for the release of the Nokia 10. However, there are reasons to believe that HMD will still release it this year.
