At MWC, HMD Global also announced other devices such as the Nokia 210 or the Nokia 3.2, Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 1 Plus smartphones. The interesting thing about Nokia 3.2 and 4.2 is its design and low price, and the presence of a notification LED on the power button. It’s something new that we have not seen to date, and it’s still more surprising to find it in low-end devices. Hence, It seems that HMD is aware that this feature could become popular, so on November 1, 2018, it applied a design patent for this solution, and on March 7 EUIPO granted it.
