London, UK, 13 February 2020 - HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, is proud to announce that six Nokia phones have been honoured by iF DESIGN™ Awards 2020 for outstanding design. We are resolute in our commitment to delivering premium phones that embody our Nordic heritage at every price point to our fans across the world.
iF DESIGN™ Awards 2020 awarded the following Nokia phones:
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, said: “We have always aspired for a Nokia phone to stand apart in the sea of sameness – with pure, emotive designs inspired by our Nordic heritage. These awards are a fitting testament to our impressive product design team, who remain committed to innovation in design and materials craftsmanship. We’re flattered that the international design community has recognised them for their exceptional talent and proud of the work they have achieved during the past year.”
An intuitive user experience, coupled with Nordic design expertise, is woven in the DNA of each Nokia phone. The same premium design principles run throughout the portfolio, whether that’s the Nokia 7.2 with its light-diffusing satin glass back, the Nokia 4.2 with its compact size and edge to edge display, or the Nokia 800 Tough that boasts an anti-slip coating and rubberised edges.
The iF DESIGN™ Awards are held by the world’s oldest independent design organisation iF International Forum Design GmbH. The judging panel consisting of 78 independent design experts reviewed over 7,000 entries from 56 countries across the globe.
