Nokia just launched its refreshed lineup of entry-level and mid-range smartphones, the Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 5.1. The three devices feature considerable upgrades over their predecessors, both in terms of software and hardware, and they will go on sale globally from June. The Company announced the devices' average global pricing at the event but ahead of the official announcement in India, the three new Nokia smartphones have been listed on the company’s India online shop, along with what seems to be their India pricing. Going by the listing on the official website, the three Nokia smartphones will serve as replacements for their predecessors and could be priced the same.
The Nokia 5.1 is listed at Rs 12,499, same as the 2017 Nokia 5, whereas the Nokia 3.1 might cost Rs 9,498. The new Nokia 2.1 is also seen listed on the site with a price tag of Rs 6,999, which is same as the older Nokia 2. It should be noted that even though the ‘Buy’ option is also live for new handsets, clicking on them currently redirects to their respective last year variants. This suggests that the microsite for new phones is still under construction and the listed prices could be tentative.
