According to VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, HMD Global is bringing its mid-range Nokia devices back to the US through a partnership with Verizon. The Nokia brand has seen a sizable amount of success across Europe under its new owner, and possibly enough to tempt them to dip their toes back into the US mid-range Android market.

Blass put out a tweet early this morning containing a leak of the new HMD-built device, calling it the Nokia 2.1V and making it out to be a carbon copy of last year’s Nokia 2.1, but with support from Verizon Wireless. If that’s the case, it will more than likely have a 5.5-inch display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 and an 8MP camera on the back. Although the leaked device doesn’t prove that a swath of Nokia phones will be headed back to the US, it does make it clear that Verizon might be testing out consumer interest in the phones.
