HMD Global’s new Nokia branded Android phones, the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and the Nokia 3 will be made in India, according to Ajey Mehta, the India VP at HMD Global. the news comes via Fone Arena who spoke to Mr. Mehta after the devices were launched at the MWC 2017.
The new devices run on stock Android 7.0/7.1.1 Nougat, without bloatware, and a promise of regular updates for the OS.
That’s not all, the new reboot of the Nokia 3310 will also be manufactured in India. The company is partnering with Foxconn for the same. HMD Global is reportedly looking at a June 2017 launch for the devices in the Country.
Though HMD’s announced prices for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are around Rs. 9800, Rs. 13300, and Rs. 16000 respectively, the devices could be sold at a lower price in India, considering that the devices will be made in India, because that would mean lower import duties.
All four phones will support Dual SIM cards in India. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will support Band 3, 5 and 40 for 4G VoLTE, which means they will work with Reliance Jio’s network.
