"We are delighted to partner with Nokia to bring exciting and affordable options to customers planning to upgrade to a 4G smartphone", said Ajai Puri, Chief Operating Officer (India & South Asia) at Bharti Airtel, in a media statement. Under this initiative, Airtel offers 4G smartphones at affordable rates with different subscription plans.
Nokia devices, he said, have "a solid brand resonance amongst customers", which is why, Airtel believes that "the partnership offers a great proposition to customers" looking for quality devices at great prices. As per Airtel's initiative, HMD Global smartphones - Nokia 3 and Nokia 2 are available at a flat Rs 2000 cashback.
Well, with the cashback of ₹2000, the effective price of Nokia 2 becomes ₹4999 and the price of Nokia 3 becomes ₹7499. Remember, there are no free lunches. However, this cashback amount of ₹2000 is given to the customers after 36 months in two installments of 18 months each. A customer need to make Airtel prepaid recharges worth Rs 3,500 within the 18 months to be eligible for the first cashback installment of Rs 500.
Sounds odd? Well, it is.
HMD Global's been pumping out Nokia phones with a number attached to them for a while now, but we've yet to hear anything about a Nokia 4 in the making. Which is why this scheme by Airtel is also a disappointment.
After this, the user will need to recharge for Rs 3,500 for the next18 months and avail the second cashback of Rs 1,500.
Nokia 3 comes with 5-inch display, 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek 6737 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 8 MP rear camera, 8 MP front camera and 2630 mAh battery. Now, key specifications of one of the phones - Nokia 4 - have surfaced online.
Nokia 1, which is said to be an entry-level Android Go phone series, is said to come with bare minimum hardware such as 1GB RAM (or less), 8GB internal storage, 8MP-5MP front and back cameras and probably around 2,000mAh of battery capacity. Although not much is known about the Nokia 4, it's being speculated that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 450 mobile processor.
