PARIS, September 30 (Benin News / EP) –

HMD GlobalThe house of Nokia phones, presented in early September Circularnews a subscription service that offers a more sustainable way to use Nokia smartphones and reduce the electronic waste generated by industry. This program continues to take shape as the company expands its product portfolio with two new smartphones and a tablet: Nokia X30 5G, Nokia G60 5G and Nokia T21.

With more than 10% of global e-waste attributed to smartphones, Circular helps solve the problem by taking care of end-of-life devices so they can be recycled. the responsibility for recycling them rests with HMD Global. If the device can be recycled, it will be. Otherwise, the phone or tablet will be disposed of responsibly and as many parts as possible will be recycled and reused to make new devices.

To encourage users to keep their devices longer, the “Seeds of Tomorrow” program rewards flyer subscribers who do so. The longer they keep their devices, the more “seeds” they get, which they can donate to various sustainability-focused causes, e.g. plant trees, capture carbon from the atmosphere, clean plastic from rivers or connect those who need it most.

“The desire to create a way for people to keep their phones longer is why Circular was born. Most people have a drawer full of old phones at home. It’s a situation we hope to change by giving individuals and companies a way to get the most out of Nokia devices and leave the smallest possible footprint on the planet,” said Florian Seiche, CEO of HMD Global.

In this way, through the circular pattern, subscribers have the freedom to decide when to return or exchange their phone or tablet from an initial period of three months. Users will even be able to choose the latest Nokia devices, including new smartphone launches such as the Nokia X30 5G, Nokia G60 5G or the Nokia T21 tablet.


Nokia X30 5G is the brand’s most environmentally friendly smartphone to date.. This is made possible by a 100% recycled aluminum frame and a 65% recycled plastic back. This sustainable approach extends to its packaging, which consists of a cardboard box made from 70% recycled paper in a smaller package to reduce CO2 emissions during transport.

This innovative smartphone features a 6.43-inch PureDisplay panel and incorporates a front lens and three rear lenses led by a 50 megapixel (MP) PureView with optical image stabilization (OIS) and artificial intelligence (AI). The device’s cameras are protected by scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass DX+, which allows 98% of light to reach the main sensor.

For its part, The Nokia G60 5G model promises Series X longevity in G. To that end, it includes the company’s “3-3-3” promise of three years of Android operating system updates, three monthly security updates, and three years of Extended Warranty.

Built sustainably with a 100% recycled plastic back and 60% recycled plastic frame, the Nokia G60 features a 6.58-inch FullHD+ display with a typical 120Hz refresh rate. The most “premium” on the market. It also has a 50 MP AI triple camera.

Finally, the company is enriching its subscription catalog. the tablet Nokia T21, with a 10.4 inch screen with 2K resolution and an 8200 mAh battery. This device includes functions such as transmission of HD video streaming, voice calls and the ability to pay via NFC technology, as well as Second Screen technology to extend and control Windows PCs and Active Pen support. It also comes with two years of Android OS software updates and three monthly security updates.

A recent survey by CCS Insight shows that around half of consumers in major European markets believe so creating products that last longer is useful and good for the environment. In this context, the circular subscription model presents itself as an interesting alternative for those who want to contribute to the fight for the sustainability of the planet without giving up the latest technologies.
