HMD Global, which has licensed the Nokia brand from the Finnish telecoms giant, has signed an exclusive deal with Zeiss, the high-end lens and optical systems maker.
Many may say the camera is key, and now the new version of Nokia hopes to stand out by putting Carl Zeiss lenses in its phones.
But it’s a measure of how assiduous HMD has been in building on old relationships with the Finnish brand – Nokia was in a partnership with Zeiss until it sold its ailing smartphone division to Microsoft.
Forget cheap and cheerful throwaway phones, Nokia is where you will now turn for a premium smartphone experience with advanced imaging technology you can’t get anywhere else.
Release of Nokia 5, 6 might get canceled due to Goods and Service Tax
In a statement to Business Today a senior Nokia executive said, “The Nokia 6 and the Nokia 5 prices already take into account the GST tax rates.
Two Nokia Android-powered smartphones—Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 scheduled to hit Indian stores in early July are expected to get delayed due to Goods and Service Tax (GST), slated to come into effect from July 1, reported Business Today.
On June 26, Nokia 3, the most affordable handset among newly launched Android-powered Nokia smartphones, announced earlier this month in India, went on sale through online stores at Rs 9,499.
While the rest of the models—Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 ready for release on July 7 for Rs 12,899 and on July 14 for Rs 14,999 respectively, may have to undergo a delay following GST roll out.
Keeping in mind the initial market fluctuation under GST in the first few weeks of July, many retailers are hesitant to stock up new products.
