HMD pilots online platform for Nokia handset sale; plans enterprise sale too

"We sold more than 70 million Nokia phones a year ago (globally) and it is a great sign that in addition to curiosity, there is also actual demand for the Nokia phones", Pekka Rantala, Executive Vice-President & Chief Marketing Officer - HMD Global, told BusinessLine. The three devices launched by the company on Wednesday - Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 plus and Nokia 6 for the Indian market - are all based on Android One. Now today, HMD has launched yet another smartphone in the country - the Nokia 7 Plus Android One Edition.

- HMD also announced the launch of the Nokia Mobile Shop which is an online store where customers can buy the Nokia phones and accessories in India.

You may have heard that Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with Dual-Sight Bothie mode.

Captain Morgan Frazer said the squadron involved in the crash and other details will also be released soon. Wharton did not have any specifics on exactly where the crash took place.

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. Other highlights of the new Nokia 6 are 5.5-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio, 16MP camera at the rear, 8MP front camera and 3000mAh battery life. The smartphone is said to give "more display area in the same footprint as a traditional 5.5-inch device". The Nokia 6 (2018) was also launched at the event, as was was the Nokia 8 Sirocco. With a attractive 6-inch Full HD+ bezel-less screen, the Nokia 7 Plus doesn't feel boxy and old, but a seamless, forward-looking phone that tries to strike a sweet balance between powerful specs and looks without raising the price tag too high. It will go up for pre-booking on April 20 and be available for sale on April 30. The setup does not come with optical image stabilization (OIS) which should hit hard when it comes to an already unimpressive low light performance that we noted during the review of Nokia 8. Overall the device feels bold and Nokia claims to have built the device from a single block of aluminum for extra durability. The rear side features a dual camera module that houses a 12-megapixel wide-angel sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 13-megapixel telephoto sensor. Nokia 8 Sirocco is diluted 7.5mm. Also, it supports wireless charging, not a niche feature anymore but a good-to-see feature. The phone has a dual camera with 360 spatial audio. As for internals, the chipset has been upgraded to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC with first variant packing 32 GB internal storage along with 4 GB RAM and a second variant with 64 GB internal storage along with 4 GB RAM. It is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. On the front, it features a 5-megapixel camera for selfies. On the front too there is a 16-megapixel camera and all the lenses are Zeiss branded which adds to the allure.

Answer: The Nokia 8 Sirocco runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The Nokia 7 plus will be available at zero cost EMI on credit cards and through Bajaj FinServ and Home Credit and ICICI bank will offer a 5 percent cashback till May 31, 2018. The rear has a 16 MP camera sensor and the front comes with an 8 MP camera sensor. The Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 pack 3,800mAh and 3,000mAh battery, respectively. This handset will be available in offline market from 6 of April onwards. The smartphone could support an in-glass fingerprint reader, G-sensor, e-Compass, Gyro, Hall sensor, and barometer. It'll be available via Amazon India, physical retailers, and the company's eStore in Black/Copper and White/Copper colors.
