Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus & Nokia 6 (2018) Launched In India

HMD Global hosted a launch event today where they launched three new smartphones. The highly anticipated Nokia 8 Sirocco has made its debut in India along with the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6 2018 version. With these three releases, Nokia has strengthened their smartphone lineup in India.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco was especially anticipated in India. In their heyday, brand Nokia had a cult-like following of utterly loyal fans who stuck with the brand. But that dwindled away as Nokia refused to step into the future and preferred to rest on its past laurels.

After experimenting with Windows mobile, Nokia, in its resurrection under HMD Global has adopted Android and it seems to be working for them. The brand is slowly gaining acceptance among smartphone users. Speaking at the event, Ajey Mehta, Vice President India, HMD Global said,

“2017 has been an instrumental year for us – we set up our business operations in the country and launched a portfolio of devices that received overwhelming response from the consumers. Today, we are taking the next significant step forward with the launch of three new Nokia Android smartphones. In 2018, we will continue to strengthen our presence in the country. I am delighted to announce the launch of our exclusive online Nokia phones shop for selling Nokia devices and accessories. We will further our commitment to India by deepening our presence in offline as well as online channels.”
