“From the 3.1 to the flagship 8 Sirocco, HMD Global has axed prices of a number of Nokia smartphones”
To entice consumers during the ongoing festive season, HMD Global has dropped prices of a range of Nokia smartphones in India. It’s worth noting that the phones that have received the price cut are available to buy offline. 91mobiles has learned from its retail sources that smartphones ranging from the budget-friendly Nokia 3.1 to the flagship 8 Sirocco (review) have received price cuts between Rs 1,000 and going all the way up to Rs 13,000.
From the earlier Rs 49,999 price tag, Nokia 8 Sirocco has come down to Rs 36,999, making itself a very attractive option for users who are looking for a flagship device at an upper mid-tier price. This massive price drop puts Nokia’s high-end offering in direct competition with the OnePlus 6 (review) and the upcoming OnePlus 6T.
Other devices getting the price drop include the 3.1, 5.1 and Nokia 6.1 (both the 3GB and 4GB variants). The Nokia 3.1 will now be available for a market operating price of Rs 10,999, after a price cut of Rs 1,000. The Nokia 5.1 on the other hand, will now retail for Rs 12,999, instead of Rs 14,499 earlier. Nokia 6.1 3GB model’s price is now reduced to Rs 13,499 (earlier it was Rs 15,499), while the higher-end 4GB version has received a price cut of Rs 1,000 and can now be purchased for Rs 16,499.
Launched in April, the Nokia 6.1 (review) comes with dual-SIM capabilities and a 5.8-inch full-HD+ display. Interestingly, the smartphone had received a price cut of Rs 1,500 in August, ahead of the launch of the Nokia 6.1 Plus. In contrast, the Nokia 3.1 and 5.1 sport 5.2-inch HD+ and 5.5-inch full HD+ displays respectively.
All these smartphones with new prices will be available to buy from neighbourhood stores near you.
