HMD Global, makers of Nokia-branded mobile phones, is set to inaugurate its own smartphone line. The Finnish mobile phone maker is reportedly working on two smartphones, which would be called HMD Global Legend and HMD Global Legend Pro – according to a news report on 91mobiles.
The report states that both smartphones have appeared in a listing on the performance benchmarking platform Geekbench, revealing key specification details. As per the listing, both smartphones would be powered by an octa-core chipset, paired with Mali G57 graphic processing unit (GPU).
