Nokia 2.1 and 3.1 has finally unveiled in Vietnam – a key market for HMD Global.
As part of this strategy, the Finnish startup company has recently launched two new phones, Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 3.1. The Nokia 2.1 combines a 5.5-inch HD screen and dual front-facing stereo speakers with a 4,000mAh battery that will last two days. It runs on a very lightweight operating system named Android Oreo Go edition.
The Nokia 2.1 will be available in three colors: blue-copper, blue-silver and grey-silver. This phone will start selling from the first week of August. However, the price has not yet been revealed.
The Nokia 3.1 runs on Android One that offers two years of OS upgrade and 3 years of security updates. It has an octa-core MediaTek 6750 chipset and features an upgraded 13MP auto-focus rear camera and 8MP selfie camera. The phone comes in blue-copper, black-chrome and white-iron, and two storage/RAM options. The 2GB/16GB version is priced at VND3.39 million ($148) and the 3GB/32GB version at VND3.99 million ($175).
Speaking at the launch ceremony of two new products in HCMC, Kyler Tan, general director of HMD Global Vietnam, noted that Nokia was continuing to expand its presence in Vietnam. On its return to Vietnam, Nokia is now one of the top five smartphone manufacturers in the local market.
HMD Global told local media that the company would make Nokia Vietnam’s leading brand of Android-operated smartphones.
