European Union Intellectual Property Office, or shorter EUIPO, granted to HMD three new design patents for Nokia device during November 2018. The devices in question are the notchless Nokia 2.1, Nokia 5.1 and the new Nokia 3.1 Plus.
Nokia 2.1 and 5.1 were announced back in May in Moscow, while the new Nokia 3.1 Plus was presented two months ago.

The latest addition to HMD’s EUIPO portfolio was added on 1st November, and there are still a few design patents that are not “registered and fully published”, so we don’t know which devices they represent. As long as new submissions are coming, we can expect new Nokia devices as well. You can check HMD’s full portfolio at EUIPO here.
