According to national law in Indonesia, smartphones sold in the country need to have 30% of the components manufactured locally. HMD Global has partnered with local firms like TSM to set up a manufacturing facility in Batam, Indonesia. Nokia 3, 5, and 6 had been certified for some time now, but HMD Global did not have all the government approvals to go ahead with the sales of their smartphones in the Indonesian market.
The factory by HMD Global finally started its operation this month, and with that, Nokia is ready to enter the Indonesian market with their mid-range phones and the new Nokia flagship. This factory is located in Batam, and it shows Nokia’s strong commitment to building high quality products for a country with 260 million population.
HMD Global is expected to announce the new Nokia phones for Indonesia on 14th September in Jakarta. HMD will not only announce its trio Nokia 3, 5 and 6, but also their premium flagship Nokia 8, that is already on sale globally.
Nokia 8 has already been announced and is currently going on sale globally in many regions where Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 were already launched. The three mid-range devices were announced at MWC 2017 with the flagship coming out last month. Nokia fans in Indonesia will not have to wait any longer to buy the phones!
