Finnish smartphone brand HMD Global was recently awarded the EISA Consumer Smartphone 2018-2019 by Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), a group comprising 53 of the world’s most respected consumer electronics magazines from 25 countries.
The jury chose HMD Global’s Nokia 7 Plus for its striking design, powerful performance and impressive imaging capabilities, after testing it against stiff competition in one of the most sought-after categories at the awards. The brand was also recognised for its commitment to quality, design and performance.
In a statement, EISA said that "by ensuring all its components work in perfect harmony with the Android One software platform, HMD Global [had] created a smartphone that users will surely recommend to friends for its incredible reliability.”
“We are thrilled to receive this year’s 'EISA Consumer Smartphone Award'”, said Gayan Wijethilaka, Head of Marketing at HMD Sri Lanka. “This prestigious accolade represents a solid recognition from the industry—not only for the Nokia 7 Plus but also for the entire suite of HMD mobile devices.”
The handset features the SnapDragon 660 system on chip, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage backed up by microSD support. It comes with a dual lens rear camera offering 2x optical zoom through the Carl Zeiss optics, and a 16 megapixel front-facing camera allowing users to use HMD’s ‘bothie’ split screen feature to live stream from both the front and rear cameras at the same time.
“Despite the competitive smartphone market space, the Nokia 7 Plus stood out from the crowd and has been extremely well-received, which has reinforced our confidence to develop further trend-setting devices which excel in design and performance for people in Sri Lanka and around the globe,” Wijethilaka added.
The award will be formally presented to HMD Global during IFA, the world’s largest consumer electronics fair, at the EISA Awards Ceremony on August 31 in Berlin. For a list of all award winners, visit https://www.eisa.eu/awards/.
