As Nokia 8 was recently launched in India, an interesting piece of information regarding the smartphone has come up. The flagship device from HMD Global will be manufactured entirely in India.
"All of the Nokia manufacturing is done by Foxconn for HMD Global. All of the phones are being manufactured in India from Nokia 3310 to Nokia 6, 5, 3 and the Nokia 8 as well," said Pranav Shroff Director, Global Portfolio Strategy and Planning at HMD Global in an interview with The Indian Express. The Finnish company has joined hands with Foxconn for the manufacturing.
However, it is unclear where exactly the phones were being manufactured. Pranav Shroff further said that HMD wanted to manufacture all their phones in India; "This (manufacturing in India) has been happening since the beginning and we intend to continue this."
Other than that, HMD Global also announced a concierge service for the Nokia 8. So if someone faces an issue with the smartphone, a person from Nokia Care will come and pick it up straight from a user's home. This service will be operable in top 50 cities of India.
Nokia 8 is priced at Rs. 36,999 and will go on sale starting from October 14 via both Amazon India and the offline stores.
Talking about its specifications, the smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor along with 4GB of RAM. The device offers 64GB of internal storage space that can be further expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card. Keeping the lights on is a 3090mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
