- Fans may have to wait till launch day to find prices of the Nokia phones
- Nokia 3310, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 are scheduled to launch in Q2
Details of the India launch of Nokia 3310 (2017) and the three new Nokia Android phones may be announced on Monday, May 8, at a New Delhi event being hosted by HMD Global. The invite calls the event “a conversation with Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global,” without giving away any details. HMD Global, which has the licence to manufacture and sell Nokia-branded smartphones worldwide, is expected to announce the India launch date of Nokia 3310, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 at the event, while fans will likely have to wait for the actual launch to find out the respective prices.
In an interview with Gadgets 360 after the MWC 2017 launch of the four phones, Sarvikas said the Nokia Android handsets’ design and software updates will be the real differentiators for buyers, not just the specifications. The new Nokia 3310, on the other hand, was described by him as “less of a rational product”, adding that that it came straight from the heart.
At the MWC 2017 Nokia launch event, the company announced that the new Nokia 3310 and Android smartphones will be launched in markets such as India, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and Europe in the second quarter. With April already over and the India launch event on May 8, Nokia’s range of smartphones and the new feature phone can be expected to hit the market any time after mid-May.
