HMD Global joins the list of mobile device manufacturers with upcoming announcements this fall. Today it uses his Nokia Mobile Twitter page (above Telephone arena) to tease us with some sort of revelation coming October 6th. It is likely that a Nokia branded tablet will be officially unveiled at the event.
The teaser shows early Nokia smartphones alongside more modern Android smartphones bearing the Nokia brand name. The last item on the lineup is a box that looks a lot bigger than anything else. The Twitter message simply says, “Our family continues to grow.”

Previous reports by Nokiamob.net and others claim that HMD Global actually plans to launch an Android-based tablet. According to the reports, the product could be called the Nokia T20, with a 10.36-inch display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and a version that could offer 4G wireless support. Prices for this tablet in the UK were reportedly leaked by a retailer, starting at £ 185 (~ $ 257) for the standard model and £ 202 (~ $ 280) for the 4G version. If HMD Global actually brings a Nokia tablet to market, it would be the first Nokia branded product since the Nokia N1 in 2015.

In an interview with Android authority Earlier this year, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas told us that the company could offer cheaper smartphones with 5G support this year. The first such phone could be the alleged Nokia G50 5G, which could have a large 6.82-inch display, according to China’s TENAA website. We’re also still waiting to see if HMD Global will launch a real high-end phone this year. Rumors have been circulating for months about the Nokia X50 with its 108 MP main camera on the back.
