Additionally, HMD Global also announced that all Nokia Android smartphones would receive Android O update.
In India, Chinese smartphone makers like Lenovo, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi are dominating the mobile market, with over 50% share. Nokia’s Android phones are mid-range and may face fierce competition from these Chinese players.
However, Nokia as a Brand carries an unflinching reputation in the mind of Indian consumers. Of course, the price of Nokia smartphones will play an important part in deciding the demand. And things have also changed a lot from the time Nokia was a market leader with over 70% share in India.
