HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced that it now offers the largest and most diverse range of “best-in-business” smartphones on Android™ with the addition of three new devices. The Nokia 9 PureView, Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 (3/32GB) join 11 other Nokia smartphones that have been validated as part of the Android Enterprise Recommended program, which offers great enterprise user experience in devices that have evolved for diverse business needs.
The Android Enterprise Recommended program gives business customers confidence that smartphones validated by the program have been approved by Google to meet objective business standards. These standards include an elevated set of specifications for hardware, software, deployment into company IT systems, security updates and user experience. The program sets a benchmark for strong user experience in a variety of enterprise use cases, enabling businesses to make easier and smarter choices for their smartphone selections.
According to recent market research by HMD Global, 98 percent of interviewed enterprises in EU5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom) say the Android Enterprise Recommended program impacts their choice of devices, with more than 50 percent saying that they choose only Android Enterprise Recommended smartphones.
Following the announcement of the three new Nokia smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2019, HMD Global is pleased to announce that all three are now Android Enterprise Recommended. These include:
- Nokia 9 PureView – the world’s first smartphone with a unique five-camera array
- Nokia 4.2 – brings cutting-edge design, a dedicated Google Assistant button1 and AI experiences in imaging to a more accessible tier
- Nokia 3.2 – offers an industry-leading display with two-day battery life2 and allows users to explore the power of voice with the dedicated Google Assistant button1
“The development of our Android Enterprise Recommended smartphone offering has followed a path defined by the needs of businesses for secure, long-lasting devices that engage and excite a diverse range of users,” said Andrej Sonkin, GM Enterprise Business, HMD Global. “Our enterprise-grade smartphones now power secure smartphone mobility for more than 50 organizations around the world. We’ve earned our pedigree supplying smartphones for leading European enterprises that are seeking devices that evolve with their needs and get better with time.”
Harnessing the power of Android One, Nokia smartphones deliver a seamless experience, free from bloatware and with only a small curated set of pre-installed apps. Paired with the premium design and trusted build quality that can be expected of a Nokia phone, the portfolio also delivers superior engineering for every business budget.
Nokia smartphones are changing the ownership paradigm for end users and enterprises alike. It is no longer only about out-of-the-box device specs but about how the user experience evolves over time with updates and upgrades. For Nokia smartphones in the Android Enterprise Recommended and Android One programs, this means a more secure experience that just keeps getting better through the latest updates and innovations from Google.
From the ability to easily switch work apps on and off depending on an employee’s needs to adding new security capabilities to protect what is important, Nokia smartphones have an unmatched track record of keeping up-to-date with the latest innovations. This evolving and adaptive user experience makes work life easier, more productive and more cost effective.
With the introduction of features such as Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness to respond to individual user needs and with two-day battery life2 across multiple price points, the Nokia smartphone range has been designed to make both IT and end users happy. Alongside the enterprise-focused features, each device in the portfolio offers personal experiences for individual users, making it a work phone that fans will love.
