Nokia 9 PureView launched in India, check out
The flagship smartphone flaunts a penta camera setup and Snapdragon 845 chipset, priced at 49,999 in India.
The Nokia 9 PureView is finally ready to make its entry in our country. HMD Global has begun to trigger the launch of flagship Nokia 9 PureView in India. It is almost sure that the smartphone will go on sale from July 10th on Nokia.com/phones and Flipkart. It will also go on sale across top mobile retail outlets in India from July 17.
Considering Nokia 8 Sirocco price last year, we can expect Nokia 9 PureView will be unveiled at around Rs 49,999 in India. The company may look for a more affordable price tag in the country to compete against the likes of OnePlus 7 and Honor 20.
The launch of the Nokia 9 PureView was highly awaited, but its delay in bringing the device to India has been questioned. The device was available in the US and some European markets for some time. The postponement of the Nokia 9 PureView in India was explained by an HMD Global executive some time ago, who said the company wanted to "serve the market with what is relevant to the market".
This year HMD Global has launched three phones in India: Nokia 2.2, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2. These are the company's low budget smartphones that highlight the screens and functions of water drops, like a dedicated Google Assistant button.
