Giant mobile phone retailer The Gioi Di Dong (Mobile World) has said it targets sales of 500,000 Nokia phones this year.

The company’s chairman, Nguyen Duc Tai, revealed this at an event held in Ha Noi on Wednesday to launch the new Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 Plus phones.

Mobile World promises to revive the Nokia brand in a market where it used to be the most popular once upon a time. The company also announced a tie-up with HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand, Google, Qualcomm, and Home Credit. Under the deal, the two new phones will be sold at Mobile World’s 1,800 stores around the country together with a number of promotion programmes including zero-interest instalment schemes.

Buyers will also get an additional year’s warranty and a chance to win a Vespa LX 125 scooter. The Nokia 6 retails at VND5.99 million (US$262) and the 7Plus at VND8.99 million ($394).
