Since the launch of the four Nokia smartphones back in April 2018, HMD Global hasn’t done anything major in the Indian market. But it seems like that’s going to change very soon with the launches of Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 2.1. The three smartphones which were already unveiled in Russia has been listed on Nokia’s official Indian website, hinting at an imminent arrival to the country. HMD Global will surely launch these three products in the Indian market, but the launch date was unknown until now. Maybe the company is planning to introduce the three smartphones along with the Nokia 6.1 Plus in India later this month. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is already confirmed to be a global variant of the Nokia X6 and the first market to receive the handset is Hong Kong later this month on July 19.
The specifications of the three handsets- Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 are listed unchanged on the Indian website when compared to the global variants. The Nokia 2.1 is an Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphone with just 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 are listed to come in 2GB/3GB RAM options with 16GB/32GB of internal storage. The website clearly states the phones will be available in both single SIM and dual SIM variants, but the latter might be only made available in India.
The Nokia 2.1 is a successor to last year’s Nokia 2 and it comes with upgraded specifications such as 5.5-inch HD display, dual front speakers, Snapdragon 425 SoC and a 4000mAh battery. It runs on the lightweight Android Oreo (Go Edition) operating system, which is designed exclusively for low-end smartphones.
Both the Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 boasts some major upgrades over their predecessors. The Nokia 3.1 has a 5.2-inch 18:9 display on the front and it’s powered by the MediaTek Helio P18 SoC. It has a 2990mAh battery, a single 13MP camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. The Nokia 5.1, on the other hand, has a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display, Helio P22 SoC, single 16MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera and is backed by 2970mAh battery. Both the smartphones are part of Google’s Android One program, meaning, they’ll receive fast and timely software updates.
