Nokia has largely been out of the consumer electronics space for years, but thanks to licensing deals you can pick up Nokia-branded phones and tablets worldwide from HMD Global, and Nokia-branded laptops in India thanks to Flipkart.

Now a French startup called OFF Global has announced it’s bringing a line of Nokia PureBook Pro laptops to 22 countries.

It’s unclear whether the Nokia name will be enough to make these laptops stand out, especially since they’re not actually made by Nokia or HMD (the company probably most associated with Nokia-branded consumer devices in recent years). But at least they’re reasonably well pried.

OFF Global will offer a 15.6 inch model pried at €699 ($780) and a 17.3 inch version that sells for €799 ($890).

Both laptops feature 1920 x 1080 pixel 250-nit displays and both are powered by 28-watt Intel Core i3-1220P processors and feature 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD (both user upgradeable).

The notebooks also have 2MP webcams, two USB Type-C ports, a USB 3.2 Type-A port, a headset jack, and a microSD card reader, a fingerprint sensor, and support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.

The 15.6 inch model weighs 1.7 kg (3.75 pounds) and features a 57 Wh battery, while the 17.3 inch version is 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds) with a 63 Wh battery. Both models measure 19mm (0.75 inches) thick.

  1. Ya know, I don’t hate it. 10cores, 12threads, that’s pretty great for middle price range. I feel like we’ve gotten spoiled for choice.

  2. Every “Nokia” launch I see just feels like another sequel of Weekend at Bernie’s. Just another group dragging around the dead Nokia name, pretending it’s still Nokia.

  3. These press releases are really overselling these things. They look like regular old macbook lookalikes, but with different colors. Not exactly “empowering” or “fun” or “joyous” or especially relevant to what world governments have made everyone do these last two years.
    I also suspect they’re really more Chinese and Thai than French.
    Apparently there’s another entity calling itself OFF Global. It publishes music I guess.
