Nokia also stepped into the laptop segment by unveiling the Purebook Pro at the event. HMD Global has been launching only budget and mid-range smartphones for quite some time now and this will not change with HMD Head of Product Marketing, Global, Adam Ferguson telling Android Authority that the company will not be making flagship smartphones for now.
Ferguson explains that making an $800 smartphone isn’t practical for the company at the moment.

Instead, Ferguson is expecting that Nokia will represent something totally different.
