HMD outsold brands like HTC, Sony, Google, OnePlus, Lenovo and many others by selling more than 4.4 million Nokia Android smartphones in Q4 2017. Now, while HMD doesn’t reveal the smartphones sales numbers directly we have to depend upon figures provided by Analyst firms.
It is also interesting to have a look at the installation number of Nokia Mobile Support app that has now crossed 5 million installations in the Google Play store.
This is no small feat, as the installation numbers shown at Google Play Store usually indicate a much larger, base as can be seen in the case of apps installed on other smartphones too. Nokia smartphone shipments numbers touched 8.7 million in 2017 and with 5 million installation of Nokia Mobile Support app one can easily expect more than 10 million Nokia smartphones in hands of users.
With HMD releasing a number of compelling smartphones like Nokia 6 2018, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 8 Sirocco and volume drivers like Nokia 1 in March-April globally we can expect a real boost to the shipment volumes further.
