HMD CEO Florian Seiche has confirmed that the company will not be selling its new retinue of devices in the US. The Nokia 6 (2018), however, will make the trip later in May, but not under the banners of any carrier.

HMD hit MWC with a bang. The company released a new lineup of devices including the Android Go Nokia 1 and the Android One Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco. The Nokia 7 Plus, in particular, is of interest to us, as we consider it to be, perhaps, the best unveil at MWC this year. Sadly, that device will not be making its way over to the US anytime soon.

According to HMD CEO Florian Seiche, the company has no plans of selling its devices in the US. This wouldn't be all surprising anyways, as the Nokia 8, HMD's 2017 flagship, wasn't officially sold in the US either. Seiche did confirm that the Nokia 6 (2018) would make its way over to the US, however, albeit in May, and not under any carrier.

It would seem that the US isn't high up on the list of HMD's priorities for now. The company finished 2017 as the 11th largest smartph]one brand in the world, shipping 4.4 million units in Q4, ahead of traditional brands like LG, OnePlus, and Sony. The company already has a significant market share in the UK and other European countries like Russia. It's also the biggest smartphone brand in Vietnam. That considered, it's likely HMD wants to build on its successes in those markets before making its way into the highly competitive US market.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
