Nokia isn’t a brand you’d think of when it comes to computers, but that appears to be changing. Nokia branded laptops will be available in 22 countries according to a newly struck exclusive licencing arrangement between Nokia and the French company OFF Global.
The Nokia PureBook Pro will be the first of them, and it will be unveiled at MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona before going on sale later this year. The Nokia-branded laptop was previously exclusively accessible in India; but, under the new agreement, customers in a number of other countries would be able to purchase it.
The arrangement also allows the French firm to participate in the laptops’ conceptualization, design, manufacture, advertising, and sale. As a result of the new licencing deal, the Nokia PureBook Pro laptop, which is offered in two display sizes, will be available in different jurisdictions.
The Nokia PureBook Pro laptop will come in two sizes: 15.6′′ and 17.3′′. Both laptops will have an IPS Full HD resolution screen with a maximum brightness of 250 nits on the panel. Aside from that, it will have an illuminated keyboard, which will be useful for working late at night.
On the inside, it will include an Intel Core i3-1220P processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. On the software side, it will run Windows 11, while on the connectors side, it will have two USB-C 3.2 ports, one USB-A 3.2 port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Finally, the Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6′′ will be powered by a 57Wh battery, while the 17.3′′ PureBook will be powered by a 63Wh battery.
Blue, dark grey, and red are some of the colours available for the computers. The company hasn’t said when the laptops would be available for purchase, but it’s expected to start at €699 (US$791).
