HMD Global kicked off the year with the launch of the Nokia 6 (2018) smartphone. A week later, it has followed it with another launch. However, this is not a phone but the Nokia BH-501 Bluetooth earphones.
The Nokia BH-501 Bluetooth earphones has an aluminium body with a brushed material finish. The BH-501 is 50cm long, weighs 15g, and comes in only black. It also has an in-line remote with three buttons for music playback and for answering calls.
The highlight of the earphones is its 3-day battery life and 144 hours of standby time, though HMD has refused to disclose its battery capacity.
While it is not advertised as sports earphones, the Nokia BH-501 Bluetooth earphones actually has an IP55 rating. This means it can survive jets of water projected from a distance.
There is no mention as to when the Nokia BH-501 will go on sale and which retailers will have them in stock.

Fun Fact – this is not the first Nokia Bluetooth earphones with the BH-501 name. Over a decade ago, Nokia released a bluetooth headset with the same model number.
