Marvel, Russian distribution company, not the superhero company, announced that it will handle the distribution of new Nokia Products in Russia, and probably CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States – ex-Soviet, excluding Baltics) countries. Marvel has more than 4,000 retail partners covering 200 cities in Russia and CIS.
“We are very pleased to cooperate with a large distributor such as Marvel in Russia,” said Aleksey Zenkov, general manager of HMD Global in Russia, and added: “We are launching a new line of smartphones and the legendary Nokia 3310. We’re ready to inspire and delight all the Nokia fans in Russia.” To be precize, Marvel will handle the distribution of Nokia 3, 5, 6, and the 3310. The 3310 (2017) has been already available in Russia in some retail stores, and can be pre-order from operator Euroset. Details about the pre-order and the pricing for 3, 5 and 6 can be found here.
In Western Europe, we already reported that Exertis, one of the largest distributors overall in Europe with 28,850 retailers and resellers globally, will handle the distribution of Nokia phones. Nokia already worked with Exertis, so basically the stores you purchased your old Nokias (2011-…) in, have a high chance to be the stores in which you will purchase the new Nokia phones, at least in Europe.
