Nokia has licensed its brand to a manufacturer of a new lineup of products and this time, it’s laptops.
The PureBook Pro laptop comes in two screen sizes – 17.3″ and 15.6″. It’s made by a French startup called OFF Global, which has a licensing agreement with Nokia to distribute the device in 22 countries worldwide.
The device sports an aluminum top cover, rounded edges, big trackpad and backlit keyboard. Of course, both options come with Full HD IPS panels with up to 250 nits of brightness, but offer just one CPU option – Intel Core i3-1220P paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSD.
The 17-inch flavor offers a 63Wh battery, while the smaller iteration carries a 57Wh pack. The former weighs a whopping 2.5kg, while the latter weighs in at more reasonable 1.7kg.
As far as connectivity goes, there’s no difference between the 17 and 15-inch variants. In both cases, you get 2x USB-C 3.2, 1x USB-A 3.2 and 1x 3.5mm audio jack.
You have the option to choose between Blue, Gray, Silver and Red colors, the Nokia PureBook Pro range will be on sale from the second quarter of 2022 at selected retailers. First wave countries of availability include France, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Norway, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Morocco, Tunisia, Canada, and Thailand.
Interestingly, India is not on the list of countries. The popular online store Flipkart has a license to manufacture and sell laptops under the Nokia brand in the country.
The Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6″ will retail from € 699, whereas the Nokia PureBook Pro 17.3″ will start at 799€.
OFF Global will release other laptop models later in 2022.
