Nokia announced three entry-level and mid-range handsets back in May three smartphones in the lower price spectrum - Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1. Today HMD announced the arrival of the trio to India (the 3.1 has already been available with 2 GB RAM, now it makes its way with 3 gigs). The phones will be launched on August 12 across plenty of retailers and Nokia�s own website.
All three phones have Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. HMD Global official told us back in spring the company is planning two-year OS updates and three-year security updates for the trio, so Android Pie should arrive at the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1, and the Nokia 2.1 in the foreseeable future.
The Nokia 5.1 has a tall 18:9 screen, unibody made of 6000-series anodized aluminum and a single 16 MP camera on the back. Only the 3GB RAM/32GB storage version will be available in the Indian market in all three colors - Copper, Tempered Blue, and Black. The price tag is INR14,499 or about $210/�185.
The mightier variant with 3/32 GB memory of the Nokia 3.1 still comes with a 5.2� LCD of HD+ resolution. The phone arrives in Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron colors for INR11,999 ($175/�150).
The most affordable of the trio is the Nokia 2.1. It packs a Snapdragon 425 chipset under a 5.5� screen with a standard 16:9 ratio. It is powered by Android Oreo (Go Edition) platform and will set you back just INR6,999 ($100/�90).
