HMD Global has announced the launch of new Nokia smartphone in India.

HMD Global has finally launched the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 6 (2018) in India, nearly a month after they were officially unveiled during MWC 2018.

Notably, HMD Global has not confirmed any of the above-mentioned details for Nokia 9, so the report should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Nokia 6 (2018): It is the updated version of the handset launched previous year. For selfies, the smartphone has a 16-megapixel rear camera with ZEISS optics and low-light capability. It has in-built Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, Android Oreo, and a 3800mAh battery. The selfie camera does a decent job as well. The overall design is quite interesting, especially the design of the phone's front side, as it's mostly white, but there's a black piece included above the display, in the upper-left corners, where the phone's sensors are located. HMD Global has made a decision to sell Nokia 7 Plus INR 25,999.

Design-wise the handset looks like a typical-Nokia device but way better than any other smartphone in the line-up (there could be some fans for the Nokia 8 Sirocco as well). "It has P-OLED 5.5" display with 16:9 form factor. It comes with USB Type-C fast charging support, and Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. There's a dual rear camera (12MP with an f/1.75 aperture and 1.4-micron pixels + 13MP with an f/2.6 aperture, 1-micron pixels) with a dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics. The dual lens module comes with one 12Megapixel lens with an aperture of f/1.75 and the second is a 13Megapixel telephoto lens which facilitates 2X optical zoom.

Display: 5.5 inches (1920 x 1080 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with 450 nits brightness, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The device will debut at INR 49,999. The phone is going to cost Rs 25,999 and will be available on Amazon, Nokia Mobile Shop and select retail outlets. It will also have a 9.7MP monochrome camera with ZEISS optics to complete the triple-camera setup. The dual tone look does make the Nokia 6 look more appealing and will definitely make it stand out from the crowd in this segment.

Pekka Rentala, the company's Chief Marketing Officer, considers that India is among 'the top 3 countries' for HMD Global. "Today, we are taking the next significant step forward with the launch of three new Nokia Android smartphones", said VP India HMD Global, Ajey Mehta. First, it is an Android One based device. The outdated Lumia handsets caught some gaze initially but failed to impress in the long run.

There's intrigue, and the Celtics aren't giving up, but this weakened team is a facsimile of what they could be one day soon. That possibility, for all intents and purposes, went out the window the second Gordon Hayward went down in the season opener.

How this difference plays out on the actual phone, will be seen when we do a more detailed analysis.

Nokia seems to have learnt its lesson with this iteration.

HMD also showcased Nokia 1, which was launched in the Indian market recently. But will this blend of features make the smartphone as "perfect" as it really sounds? Many would still argue that the device is a bit overpriced but the improvement deserves more than just the "Plus" badge. That is more or less it, the designer did not share any more spec info for the phone, as this is a concept device after all.

Nokia 6 is the phone that will help the brand garner the likes of its predecessor. However, last year, Google partnered Xiaomi to launch Mi A1 that was powered by Android One. Expanding their existing portfolio of phones available in the market.

The Nokia phones are being manufactured 100 per cent in India (by Foxconn at Sri City, Andhra Pradesh) and therefore, there is no impact of the latest 10 per cent import duty on printed circuit boards by the government, Rantala said.

Should competition worry about the latest from Nokia?
