Images of what seems to be a brand new 007-branded Kevlar case for HMD’s Nokia 6.2 cellphone have leaked on-line, and it nearly makes the midrange handset look bulletproof. The photos had been posted to Twitter by WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, they usually present what’s nearly actually a results of the model partnership HMD introduced final week, which may even see its first 5G cellphone seem within the upcoming James Bond movie No Time to Die. The case beforehand leaked in a retailer itemizing noticed earlier this month by NPU.
The change to Nokia is a giant transfer for Bond, who’s at all times been extra of a Sony man previously. Pierce Brosnan famously used a Sony Ericsson JB988 to regulate a automobile in Tomorrow Never Dies, for instance, whereas Daniel Craig has used Sony Ericsson M600i, C902, and Okay800i handsets (recognized due to T3’s sleuthing). However, the partnership was strained on one event when Daniel Craig refused to pose with a Sony Xperia Z4. “The thinking, subjectively/objectively is that James Bond only uses the ‘best,’ and in their minds, the Sony phone is not the ‘best’,” a subsequently leaked electronic mail learn.
Now, we wouldn’t go so far as to say HMD’s telephones are one of the best round, both, but when Bond is searching for a strong midrange handset, he may do quite a bit worse. A earlier leak steered that the circumstances will retail for €25, will probably be out there later this month, and there’ll even be a model out there for the Nokia 7.2 in addition to the 6.2. There’s no phrase on whether or not the circumstances are literally bulletproof, although, however we’re guessing not.
