From a long time, we are waiting for Nokia Android phones. Finally, Nokia has promised they will launch more than 10 Nokia Android phones this year. Nokia 3, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 has been already launched. Even Nokia 6 registration has been started on Amazon India store. But now, we hear about a device from Nokia. This is “Nokia 2”. In this article, we are going to talk about Nokia 2 specifications, price in India and expected launch date of Nokia 2 in India.
Previous Nokia Android phones are being very popular now. This proves that Nokia lovers are still alive and looking for new devices from Nokia. But now, all the Nokia activities are operated by HMD Global. So, we can see a slight difference in the marketing of new Nokia android phones.
We have seen already that Nokia 6 will be sold only on Amazon India flash sales and the registration process is already started. So, this time HMD Global is going to approach the flash sale strategy to increase the demand and then the sale of their new phones. Previously, Xiaomi has got great success by following this strategy.
