Though the Nokia 3310 Refresh which took place last month in India did not turn out to be the success HMD Global might have expected, this has not stopped their paces at all and they are all set to unveil the first Android Smartphones(Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3) of their listings on Tuesday, 12 PM.

Everything including the price of the three smartphones and how these will be made available to the customers will be made official in the launch event.

It is almost certain that all these smartphones are going to carry a price tag which should look a bit overwhelming considering the specifications they have. But this will rather be an interesting thing to notice as Nokia, during its reign, was considered to be the mark of quality in the mobile world.

Nokia, as a brand, is something which almost every Indian knows and Nokia might try to play that card while selling these smartphones in the Indian market. Whether this would turn out to be a success or not – time would tell.

Coming back to the price of these three smartphones, the expected prices look somewhat like this

  • Nokia 6: Rs 15,000 – Rs 16,000
  • Nokia 5: Rs 12,000
  • Nokia 3: Rs 9,900

Of course, these are still rumored prices, but they give a slight idea of what’s to come on the launch day.

Now, why would these prices turn out to be a bit too high for the customers? Let’s have a look at the specifications of each of the smartphones.

Nokia 6 specifications

Nokia 6
  • A 5.5-inch full-HD 2.5D screen with Corning Gorilla Glass protection
  • A front fingerprint sensor which acts as the home key as well
  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • Snapdragon 430 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB inbuilt storage
  • 128 GB of expandable storage
  • A 3000mAh battery
  • A 16-megapixel rear camera
  • An 8-megapixel front camera

Considering the dated processor and a fairly limited amount of RAM, Rs 16,000 would seem too much for the Nokia 6.

Final verdict

There is no denying the fact that all the three smartphones in this lineup are somewhat costlier than they should have been. But again, it’s Nokia after all. You would never hesitate to spend almost anything on a new Apple device, would you?

Such was the case with Nokia too, once. We do not see any reason as to why it can’t happen again.
