HMD - Nokia’s parent company, is collaborating with Mattel
to launch a Barbie-branded flip phone coming July. There is no information
about the device’s pricing and features as of yet, but what is certain is that
it is going to be the iconic flip phone from the old days, and not a smartphone.
This collaboration is part of HMD’s new project that aims to move away from selling its products under the brand name Nokia, and selling them under its own name instead. As part of this new venture, HMD plans to create multiple partnerships with other companies, and Mattel happens to be the first one.
