HMD schedules event for March 19 in London, likely to replace MWC

Like many other companies, HMD Global was planning to make some announcements at this year's Mobile World Congress prior to its cancellation in the light of the Covid-19 outbreak. Some of those companies have already scheduled and held their replacement events to make those announcements, and now, HMD has announced plans to do the same.

HMD chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas, shared the announcement on Twitter, scheduling the event for March 19 in London. The tweet contains a clear nod to James Bond movies, specifically the upcoming No Time To Die. However, it's unclear if this entails any partnership with the movie's creators, but that certainly seems possible.

As to what devices will be announced at the event, the rumor mill has been surprisingly quiet as far as HMD's plans go, aside from the potential announcement of the Nokia 5.2, which was leaked by Evan Blass on Twitter a while back. It' safe to assume we'll see the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView, or at least a flagship phone of some kind. We also know Nokia is planning to launch a 5G smartphone sporting a Snapdragon 765 5G chipset, since the company made an appearance at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit last year to announce just that.
