Is HMD Global making the same mistake as previous Nokia

Nokia fans are rejoicing all over the world that Nokia is now back in business thanks to HMD Global and they have announced some good phones , but in my opinion HMD global is making the same mistake as previous Nokia did. Let’s see the hype of 3310 and Nokia 3,5 and 6 are not created but where are the phones , umm , they will be launched in June , some 4 months after the announcement,  what will happen in the meantime.
