A new market HMD is entering in 2018 is Uruguay, a country located South America. HMD’s presence in South American region overall isn’t that great (Chile, Columbia, Peru, Mexico) and it is good to see them expanding and bring newer devices to that markets. Cromo.com.uy reports that HMD Global will start selling the Nokia 2 (€120), Nokia 3 (€160), Nokia 5 (€208), Nokia 6.1 (€273) and the Nokia 8 (€322) in Urugay. The prices of lower end models are a bit high, but the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 8 are very well priced there.
The global sales of the new smartphones is expected to start next month.
