It was in late May that HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 at an event in Russia. These smartphones are the latest entry-level offerings from the Finnish company. These are the successors to the Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 2 launched last year. Now, it looks like the Indian launch of these phones is imminent.
In a recent development, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 have been spotted listed on the official Nokia India website. The pricing of these phones is not revealed but this hints that the Indian launch of these smartphones could be launched soon in the country.
However, this isn't the first time that these Nokia smartphones have been listed on the official site. Within a few days of the announcement, these phones were spotted on the official Nokia India website. Back then, the listing revealed the alleged Indian pricing of these smartphones.
Alleged pricing of Nokia smartphones
According to the listing, the Nokia 5.1 will be priced at Rs. 12,499, the Nokia 3.1 will be priced at Rs. 9,200 and the Nokia 2.1 will be priced at Rs. 6,999. The Nokia 5.1 and 3.1 will run Android 8.0 Oreo and belong to the Android One programme. The Nokia 2.1 will be an Android Go (Oreo edition) smartphone.
Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 specifications
Being sequels to the yesteryear models, these smartphones have upgraded specifications. The Nokia 2.1 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 425 SoC and a 4000mAh battery. The Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 arrive with major upgrades than their predecessors. Both these smartphones make use of MediaTek processors and tall 18:9 displays. As these two smartphones are a part of the Android One program, these phones are prone to receive quick and timely software updates.
Given that the Nokia X6 is yet to be launched in the country, we can expect this one to also be launched in India anytime soon. Moreover, there isn't an official confirmation from the company regarding the pricing and launch date of these Nokia smartphones in India. Notably, the Nokia X5 aka Nokia 5.1 Plus is all set to be launched in China later today.
