HMD Global unveiled one aspect of its new strategy not too long ago. In this move, HMD rebranded one of its Nokia models, crafting a device tailored for the African company M-KOPA. The recently revealed M-KOPA X1 smartphone is now featured on M-KOPA’s website.
The product pages highlight the phone’s fusion of durability, high-class design, and technology. Although the product listing lacks extensive details, the images affirm its identity as the Nokia C32. Noteworthy changes include the replacement of the Nokia logo with the M-KOPA emblem, along with the addition of a new “Designed by HMD” logo.
Furthermore, the specifications solidify the device’s roots in the C32. The M-KOPA X1 boasts 4 gigabytes of RAM, a 5000 mAh battery, a 50-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera. Additional features include the Android 13 operating system, a side-mounted fingerprint reader, facial recognition, a sleek glass back, and a 6.5-inch screen.
This device will be sold in Africa, with availability in Kenya confirmed through various financing options. While HMD Global and M-KOPA have yet to make official announcements about the phone, it has already been listed in the product lineup for the Kenyan company.
As per the website, the new device will exclusively be available in black, mirroring the color option for the Nokia C32. However, the product list also showcases the Nokia C32 in pink, sparking curiosity about the potential impact of the M-KOPA X1 on C32 sales.
