Another unknown #Nokia design patent submitted by HMD

HMD Global has built up quite a pile of design patents, most of which were transferred from Microsoft and reffer to the “before Lumia” era of Nokia, and, not to forget, the patents for the graphical user interface of Nokia Camera app. HMD has 521 designs and 2 trademarks by EUIPO, and the last one was made public yesterday.

HMD added a new design patent under the number 004367555-0001. The design was filed on 22th September and the filling has been made public yesterday. Apart from that, nothing else is known.

Apart from this patent, there are 5 additional design patents that are not fully made public and we don’t know what devices they represent. HMD has patented all of its announced smartphones, as well as the Nokia 3310 feature phone. HMD also recently added TARMO as a trademark for use on the mobile market.

    I wonder if they’re adding new products, or getting ready to replace existing phones with updated models. I still think of HMD as a “small” company and I’m wondering if they can handle a large portfolio.

    So much Nokia news this morning! Thank you for all your hard work guys.

    • Was thinking about that. If they really intend to keep their promise of 2 year software support, I think they don’t need a successor of a device every 12 months 🙂 The design patents could also be for accessories or package and similar. 🙂 And you’re welcome

        You’re absolutely right! I didn’t think about accessories at all. Maybe a new, more efficient wireless charger? 🙂 . Very interesting.
