Nokia 7 Plus is HMD Global's trump card

All these smartphones were announced by the company during MWC last month in Barcelona making this the fastest launch of Nokia devices after the global reveal. At an event in New Delhi, the HMD Global-led company showed off the Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7 Plus and its new flagship device, the Nokia 8 Sirocco.

"Today, we are taking the next significant step forward with the launch of three new Nokia Android smartphones".

"We want to be among the top three smartphone brands within the next couple of years", Ajey Mehta, head of India operations at HMD Global, told ET.

Representatives of the company Nokia announced that they plan to restart another retro phone that was presented in 1994 and became one of the most iconic devices of the time.

On the front, the device sports a 5.5 inch Full-HD display, however, accompanied with huge bezels (notch-haters will like it).

Once a dominant player in the Indian market, Nokia began to see a downfall in market share some time around 2012 due to its slow response to changing trends like dual SIM and touch screen smartphones. However, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, the most premium of the lot, is the only device that will be imported into the country. The Nokia 6 is now available on Amazon India for Rs 12,999, after receiving a discount of Rs 500 as opposed to its previous retail price of Rs 13,499. It will go on sale from April 6 in Nokia Shop as well as other leading retailers.

Nokia 8 will come with curved Glass finish in Sirocco stainless steel frame. The new Nokia 6 is crafted out of 6000 series aluminium into a unibody design. The main camera of Nokia 9 comes with 4x optical zoom support and an LED flash and may feature a 21MP sensor on the front with f/1.8 aperture. Without explaining in detail, the company confirmed that there will be special cash back offers for Nokia 7 Plus customers. Additionally, a Qi Wireless Charger is available with the smartphone. The Nokia 7 Plus features dual camera system powered by Carl Zeiss optics. Airtel is offering cashback of Rs. 2,000 on purchase of the phone under the Mera Pehla Smartphone initiative. Underneath, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage which can be expanded, and a 3800mAh battery which does support quick charging. The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel lens capable of shooting 1080p video. Under the hood sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC which is upgraded from last year's Snapdragon 400. The rear has a 16 MP camera sensor and the front comes with an 8 MP camera sensor. The smartphone is tipped to run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

The Nokia 1 has a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display that supports 480 x 850 pixels resolution. Of course, the latest leak need to be taken with a pinch of salt as HMD Global has not made features of Nokia 9 official. The rear also hosts a fingerprint sensor. Fitted with 6-inch FHD+ display, the smartphone gets a 3800 mAh battery life which is touted to be sufficient for 2 days.

The phone has Fingerprint sensor. Although Shroff confirmed the company will be discontinuing Nokia 6 from the markets, he did not confirm as to when exactly will this start happening.
