In a recent tweet by IDC’s Francisco Jeronimo, it’s been revealed that 1.5M Nokia branded phones were sold in the first half of 2017. He also shared that according to IDC, the new 3310 is the star of the show, and is the best-selling phone in western Europe.
Most of these units sold are most likely the Chinese variants of the Nokia 6, which was already available there since January. As such, the numbers for Q3 and Q4 will be even more interesting, as all of their announced smartphones including the Nokia 3,5, and 8 would be already available globally.
In an interview last month, HMD CEO Pekka Ranata stated that Nokia has already sold millions of smartphones and feature phones, and that the demand even overwhelms the current manufacturing capabilities.
