In the past few weeks, HMD Global has unveiled two mid-range smartphones, the Nokia X6 and the Nokia X5. The duos made their debut in China and were called the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 5.1 globally. It looks the Finnish smartphone maker is preparing for the launch of the yet another smartphone. A yet-to-be-announced Nokia handset, carrying a model number of Nokia TA-1104 has received the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) certification in Russia. For now, the certification details are limited. All we see is the model number of the device and the date of publication as 08/03/2018. Last month we had also seen two unannounced Nokia smartphones, the Nokia TA-1119 and TA-1087, getting the same EEC certification in Russia. In total we expect the trio of Nokia handsets to get released in Russia if HMD Global has any such plans. Russia seems to be the big market for the Finnish smartphone maker, as it had first announced the successor of Nokia 5, Nokia 3, and Nokia 2, in the form of new Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 back in May.
