  • HMD is gearing up to launch its first-ever smartphone in India this month. 
  • The company will launch the device in the country on July 25th. 
  • HMD is facing legal issues over the Arrow name for the device.

HMD is hard at work to launch its first smartphone in India. While the HMD Skyline has been making rounds on the internet and is tipped to debut by this month’s end, the company plans to launch a completely different device. Let’s take a look at everything we know about this upcoming HMD smartphone so far. 

HMD Arrow India launch confirmed 

After months of leaks and teasers, the company is finally ready to take the wraps off from its first phone in India. The company is planning to host an event on July 25th in India to launch its first smartphone. 


However, HMD is facing legal issues over the “Arrow” name for the device. It’s highly likely that the company will unveil the device at the event with a different name. HMD is still tight-lipped about the launch timing details of the device but promises to share more about it in the coming days. 

HMD Arrow: what we know so far

Until recently, it was speculated that the HMD Arrow would be a rebrand of the HMD Pulse in a new shade. However, later, a leak suggested that the phone would be a brand-new model. Another report indicates that the device will come with a fresh design, 5G support, better camera setup, upgraded specifications, and a new chipset at the helm.

Word on the street is that the device will retail under Rs 20,000 in India. If true, the first HMD phone will compete with the CMF Phone 1, Moto G85 5G, Lava Blaze X, and OnePlus Nord CE 4 Lite, which are available in the same price range. 

Unfortunately, that’s all we know about this upcoming HMD phone so far. However, we expect to learn more about it in the coming days, so stay tuned.
