    Nokia smartphones price cut

    Now, as per a NokiaPowerUser report, the Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 smartphones are available at the discounted pricing of Rs. 9,355 and Rs. 11,899 respectively. With this price cut, the Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 smartphones will rival the bestselling mid-range smartphones - Xiaomi Redmi Y2 and Realme 2 also priced similarly.

    Notably, the Nokia 3.1 recently received the Android 8.1 Oreo update and is awaiting the Android 9 Pie update as well. On the other hand, the Nokia 5.1, which runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box will get the Pie update either by the end of 2018 or early in 2019. This isn't surprising as these belong to the Android One program and the company has assured two years of OS updates and three years of security updates to all its Android One devices.

    In the meantime, the company is hosting an event in Dubai on December 5 and is expected to launch three Nokia smartphones. There are speculations that the company might unveil the Nokia 8.1, Nokia 2.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1 Plus at the event. Also, there are claims that the Nokia 9 flagship could also be on tow.
