About Release


In Norwegian


Today, cell phones are something we all depend on, both privately and at work. But the fact is, we are not dependent on it being new. Nevertheless, great cell phones are scrapped – just because there is a lot of money to be made from selling new ones. We want to do something about that and have made it our mission to make reused the natural first choice. 

About us

“Guaranteed quality used”

By that we want to assure you that when you buy a cell phone at Release, you can be safe to say you’ve chosen a reused product.

But the fact that our cell phones are used by someone else before you, doesn't make it unsafe.

Each cell phone goes through significant tests by experienced technicians, to secure the quality before they reach our customers. In that way the cell phone you buy from us, will function just as well as a new one.

It is about time that we change the way we see the lifespan of a cell phone. The difference between an older model and a new release has less advantages than you may think, even though the cost might seem otherwise. The environment Is paying the highest price.

Our history

Release was established the summer of 2020. The company started out as Grønnmobil, a company that saw the light of day in 2011. The two businesses are now run by the same company with joint management.

The company has our headquarter and warehouse in Sandefjord, where the mobiles are quality checked before dispatched to new customers. This is also where phones that are at the end of their lifespan, is recycled as e-waste in a proper manner.

Our stores

In March 2021 we opened our first Release Flagship store, in Kongens gate 9 in Sandefjord.

Now, you can also buy refurbished phones from Release in most Teknikmagasinet stores, as well as all Telliberry stores.
