Since the COVID-19 outbreak has started, the tech companies are doing everything to provide best-in-the-industry services for the people. From auto-sector to electronics, robotics to software development, every enterprise is busy with its innovations and cutting-edge technologies. And now, two of such industries (Dell and HMD Global) are bringing the new lines of their techs in the mobile and laptop segments. So let’s take a look:
HMD Global Set to Launch new Nokia Series
HMD Global is all set to launch its new Nokia smartphone lineup in the later third or fourth quarter of the year. Last week, HMD Global disclosed the release timeline for the Nokia PureView, Nokia 6.3, Nokia 9.3, and Nokia 7.3. And now, new details regarding the Nokia phones have emerged.
On the Canadian certification website, a TA-1277 variant of an upcoming Nokia smartphone was seen ahead of the official launch. TA-1275, TA-1274, and TA-1270 variants were also spotted on the US FCC certification website. Although there are no specifications or features details available for these upcoming variants, it does confirm the imminent commercial launch of these devices. Based on the US FCC listing, the reports suggest that Nokia’s phone will have a 6.5″ display and 4500mAh battery.
Nokia 9.3 PureView
Without a doubt, it’s going to be a premium phone in the new Nokia lineup. According to reports, the Nokia 9.3 PureView will have a five-rear camera setup, similar to its predecessor. It will offer a 120Hz display and consist of the Snapdragon 865 processor.
This smartphone has already made multiple appearances before its launch. Nokia 2.4 will be an entry-level budget smartphone that will come with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processer. The rumors say that it’s codenamed Wolverine, which will have a 6.5″ HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. If the reports are true, then it will consist of 2GB RAM, triple rear cameras (13MP+2MP+5MP), Android 10 OS, and an 8MP selfie camera. The battery will have 4500mAh capacity.
Nokia 7.3 is going to be a mid-range phone with a 48/64 MP quad-rear camera setup, and a 24/32 MP selfie camera.
Nokia 8.3 5G
Nokia 8.3 5G is going to be the main attraction of Nokia. The phone was spotted on the Russian certification website along with Nokia 2.4. The company also showcased the phone earlier this year, but have to cancel its launch plans due to the COVID-19. As the name suggests, it will be a 5G smartphone that comes with a 6.8″ full HD+ resolution display. It has a 24MP selfie camera and 64MP quad-rear PureView camera on the back. Nokia 8.3 5G will run on Android 10 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and consists of 8GB RAM. It will have a 4500mAh battery backup.
Based on rumors, the new Nokia 6.3 will come with a Snapdragon 700-series processor chip. It will also have a quad-rear camera setup with lower MP counts (24MP, 12MP, 2MP, and macro sensors). It will be a budget smartphone with a price tag of around INR 20,600 for 3GB+64GB model.
India is a perfect destination for Mobile Manufacturing.
India is now focusing on local manufacturing and tends to boycott the Chinese market and products. It gives a perfect opportunity for HMD Global to manufacture its smartphones in India. There’s a plethora of skilled labor force and a young consumer base, which will be an advantage for Nokia series.
Ajey Mehta, HMD Global Vice President – Corporate Business Development, said at the Horasis India Meeting: “The ambition of making India a global hub of mobile device manufacturing has finally been realized, and because of COVID-19, the process has accelerated even further. It has driven companies to adopt China-plus one strategy when it’s about manufacturing and supply chain.”
According to a report by ICEA-EY, India has every ingredient necessary to encourage local manufacturing of mobile phones at a large scale and export boost to other countries. The only thing that’s missing is the policy support that can benefit firms, unveil measures, and incentivize production to provide cost competitiveness to industry. Right now, India suffers from various disabilities, such as high tax costs and power costs. It makes India almost 10 to 20 percent less competitive compared to China and Vietnam. India should urgently address these disability issues in the long run.
