Nokia Mobile officially announced that the toughest Nokia smartphone, Nokia XR20, will be promoted as the smartphone for 00 agent Naomi that Lashana Lynch is playing in the new James Bond movie No Time To Die.
Not so long ago, the official James Bond-themed promo video with Lashana as its main protagonist was (re)released with Nokia XR20 replacing the Nokia 5.3 and later Nokia 8.3 5G. I kind of expected to see new Nokia phones digitally inserted in the movie, but that is less likely to happen since the production of that kind of effect costs more than Nokia Mobile and movie producers could afford now.
The official statement mentioned that Nokia 3310 will be featured in the upcoming James Bond movie No Time To Die movie, but a little bird told us that will be seeing Nokia 8.3 5G and Nokia 7.2 (thanks birdie). This will surely raise the price of second hand Nokia 7.2 devices :).
Here is the official press statement from Nokia Mobile:
Nokia phones feature in the hotly anticipated James Bond movie No Time To Die
The only gadgets you’ll ever need – Nokia phones by HMD Global take on their toughest test in No Time To Die

Tough, resilient and life-proof[i], the new Nokia XR20 is the latest 5G[ii] Nokia smartphone to feature in a Bond inspired TVC with British actress Lashana Lynch who appears in character as 00 agent Nomi from No Time To Die.
Lashana Lynch, who plays 00 agent Nomi in No Time To Die, said: “The world we live in now means we all have the ultimate gadget in our pockets. It’s amazing what smartphones can do nowadays.”

I wonder who will be using 3310. Hope villains won’t get their hands on it, since Bond will have trouble defeating them with having the toughest man built gadget.
