When the tech world was busy following and covering the Samsung Unpacked event, HMD Global, the exclusive licensee of Nokia smartphones quietly without much fanfare released the Nokia 2.1, the Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 5.1 in India.
The devices also called Nokia 2 ( 2018), the Nokia 3 (2018) and the Nokia 5 (2018) are the successors to the original Nokia 2, 3, 5 respectively which were unveiled last year.
The Nokia 2.1 has been priced for Rs. 6,999 the same price for which the Nokia 2 retailed on its debut last year.
The Nokia 3.1 is available for Rs 11,999 for the 3GB/ 32 GB variant. And as it happens, it is currently the only variant of the device launched in the country.
The Nokia 5.1 has been priced at Rs 14,999 and is available in the 3GB/ 32GB variant.

ICICI Bank is giving a cashback of 5% on purchase of Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 3.1 made using their cred or its cards.
From telecoms, Idea, and Vodafone are giving a couple of offers on the purchase of the device. For those who are upgrading from an old 2G or 3G phone to the Nokia 3.1, there is an extra 1GB data per day for the next 28 days.
