HMD Global is going to reveal Nokia’s future plans for India on May 8. Alongside discussing the future plan of the company, HMD is also expected to reveal the India launch date of the upcoming Nokia 3310, Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 phones.
The press note reads as follows: “HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones invites you to a conversation with Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global.” The meet is going to take place in an event in New Delhi on May 8 at 6 PM.
However, probable chances are that the Finnish company will announce the launch date of the most awaited Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and also the 2017-edition of the nostalgic Nokia 3310. Sources close to India Today Tech a few days ago confirmed that the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and also the Nokia 3310 may hit the Indian shores next month – June. That’s exactly what HMD is planning to do, we guess. The company is probably working on a plan to announce the launch date of the Nokia phones in May, and official release the devices in June.
To recall, HMD showcased these Nokia phone at the CES 2017 event back in February. The most-awaited of the lot is the Nokia 3310, which is a much-upgraded version of the black and white Nokia 3310 device. The new Nokia 3310 looks very different from the old Nokia 3310. The key highlight of the Nokia 3310 (2017) will be of course its battery. The feature phone will include a 1200 mAh battery which as per the company is said to last for 22.1 hours of talk time, 31 days of standby, 51 hours of MP3 playback and 39 hours FM radio playback.
The feature phone is expected to come in several colour variants which include – red, dark Blue, yellow, and grey. The 2017 edition of Nokia 3310 will come with a 2.4-inch QVGA display. On the camera front, the device will feature a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and further will run on Nokia Series 30+ operating system. Storage-wise, the phone will come with 16MB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card.
Reports are also such that Nokia 3310 (2017) will also have its own limited edition. HMD Global announced an Instagram promotional campaign on Tuesday in which the company is giving an opportunity to the consumers to design their own limited edition Nokia 3310 packaging.
“We’re grateful for the incredible support we receive every day from Nokia mobile fans and wanted to do something special to thank them. The design is extremely close to our hearts and something Nokia fans love. We’re excited to see the design talent come through from the fans and hope the opportunity to be the sole designer and owner of a one of a kind Nokia 3310 will add to the excitement for Nokia mobile fans too,” Pekka Rantala, chief marketing officer of HMD Global said in a statement announcing the launch of the campaign. The company also says, “One talented entrant will win a one of a kind Nokia 3310, complete with the winner’s very own design.
