Last month, Nokia Mobile has revealed new Nokia devices during their virtual launch event from their home country Finland. Besides phones, Nokia Mobile also showed a 007-branded Kevlar case to kickstart their partnership with the James Bond film. Surprisingly, it was also announced that the case will only be available for last year’s Nokia 7.2, and Nokia 6.2 – not for the newly released Nokia 8.3 5G and Nokia 5.3.
However, on the Dutch e-Commerce website Knaldeals pre-order listing appeared for the same 007-Kevlar case, but for the Nokia 5.3. While there is no photo to confirm this, the website did put an SKU as well as 12 months warranty for the said product. There is also some legit-sounding product description to top things out.
“My name is Bond, James Bond. With this Nokia 5.3 case, your smartphone is literally undercover. The Nokia 5.3 Kevlar James Bond case is made of hard plastic and protects the device against scratches and bumps. In addition, the phone case features a Kevlar design with a 007 logo. This gives the smartphone a tough look. Are you also a fan of the James Bond film series? Then you will certainly hit the bullseye with the Nokia 5.3 James Bond Kevlar case.”
Now, take this with a grain of salt as there has been no information that could confirm the availability of the Kevlar case of the Nokia 5.3.
The price is listed as €34.95 (with a 13% discount if your pre-order), but the regular price is listed as €39.95. This is way more expensive than the official Kevlar case for the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 which both are priced at only €19.99.
Anyway, it is rumored that the official Kevlar case (for the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2) will be released with the James Bond movie later this year. Also if you live in the U.K, and have purchased a Nokia 6.2 or Nokia 7.2 between March 27, 2020, and April 17, 2020, you can still redeem your free Nokia Power earbuds and 007 Kevlar case on Nokia’s website. You can only redeem this until May 30, 2020.
