In Short:

HMD Arrow smartphone was set to launch in India but will now debut under a different name due to legal reasons. The final name of the phone will be announced soon, possibly on July 25. The phone may be a rebranded version of HMD Pulse, available in Europe. Pulse features a 6.65-inch screen, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, 5,000mAh battery, and 128GB storage.

HMD Arrow has been a subject of speculation for some time now. The Finnish brand was gearing up to launch the device in India under its own brand. HMD has now officially confirmed that the handset will be introduced with a different name. While the exact launch date remains undisclosed, rumors point to a possible unveiling on July 25. The upcoming smartphone is expected to make its debut as a rebranded version of the HMD Pulse, which has been available in Europe since April.

HMD Arrow Moniker Dropped

Through its social media handles, HMD announced that it had chosen the “Arrow” name for its upcoming smartphone. However, due to legal reasons, the brand is unable to use this name. The final name of the phone will be revealed in the coming days.

The name Arrow was selected by HMD based on a user contest on X. The brand has assured that the contest entries are still valid, and winners will receive their prizes soon.

Although the launch date of the new HMD handset remains a mystery, a report by 91Mobiles hints at the company planning to host an event on July 25 in India for the launch of its first smartphone, which may offer 5G connectivity.
