Nokia MD-22 Wireless Speaker
The Nokia 2 will launch alongside the MD-22, a new Nokia-branded wireless speaker from HMD Global Oy, one industry insider said earlier this week. Apart from the entry-level Android device, it seems that the Finnish consumer electronics company may be working on a successor to the MD-12 speaker that debuted three years ago, though it’s currently unclear whether the firm has any plans to bundle the two products together or if it will simply unveil them at once later this year. The MD-22 speaker will reportedly be priced at between €30 to €40, which translates to approximately $35 and $47, respectively, and is somewhat lower than the €49 launch price tag of the MD-12. The device is said to be bound for a European launch and it remains to be seen whether HMD Global also ends up bringing it to more markets, provided that the product itself actually exists.
The Nokia 2 has been the subject of numerous rumors circulating the industry in recent months, with sources claiming that the handset is set to become HMD Global’s most affordable Android smartphone to date. The smartphone that will apparently be even more basic than the entry-level Nokia 3 is supposedly set for a November launch and will presumably become commercially available by this year’s holiday season. Other industry sources previously claimed that the Finnish firm is planning to unveil the Nokia 2 on October 5th but as the company previously introduced its new offerings as part of special events and no invitations have yet made their way to the media, that scenario doesn’t seem likely.
