Any idea when this phone is being released in the UK?
I would directly ask a Nokia vendor in UK if I were you.
Well when I asked the official Nokia vendor in Malaysia, they too were tight lip about its release eventhough at their FB page, they were toying with a new unit so I came to the conclusion that is a company policy. I find KaiOS Technologies more welcoming and clarified their domain is the operating system, the hardware and updates belong to Nokia while apps which are not native to them belong to the respective companies that developed them.
