HMD is bringing its first set of smartphones that don’t have the popular Nokia brand name to the Indian market soon. Here are the details.

Human Mobile Devices or HMD, makers of Nokia-branded smartphones, is going to roll out its first HMD-branded smartphone in India. Ahead of the official launch, the Finnish brand has recently announced the device’s moniker, which was chosen by the public through a contest on X. The brand is expected to debut the upcoming HMD phone in the country in a few weeks times.

Last week, HMD India announced the upcoming debut of its first smartphone in India. The company came up with a different marketing strategy to grab the attention of users and initiated a #HMDNameOurSmartphone contest on X, asking users to suggest names.

It was no surprise that Indian users hopped into the contest and came up with a plethora of name suggestions for the forthcoming HMD smartphone. Users suggested names like SHARPSY, Knife, Beast, INDHUMANOID, Manbha, Brahmos, Naruto, Spectra Spark and many more.

Out of the thousands of suggestions, the name that got the official nod for the upcoming smartphone was Arrow. The tech giant has partnered with the IPL team as their official smartphone partner during this year’s T20 season.
