  1. Sirocco at 35 k(no IP68 water resistance, no headphone jack, that is the maximum price) and Nokia 7 Plus at 20-22 k would do well. If Nokia set up a factory in India they can benefit from the tax cuts under the “Make in India” scheme. Until then it is doubtful these phones will even see an Indian launch as Nokia have tended to focus on the Chinese market

    Good news is that if they do get launched they will probably drop quickly in price to an acceptable value like the Nokia 8.

  7. Terrible pricing by Nokia . We have already seen responce for Nokia 8. Nokia’s success depends upon their camera quality.Hope Carl-Zeiss optic lens will do something surprising .If some has to spend above50k he will surely go for Samsung or Google.

  8. Nokia7 and 8 both are too much overpriced.
    Samsung S9 and s9+ are much better option in this price.

  9. Price Will Be Low Helped …. Otherwise Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo Zindabad…. Let’s First Wait For Nokia 6 2018 Price In India 🙂

  10. i like movie sirrocco not the phone. Nokia is always wrong in pricing. earlier too much love for symbian OS killed the company and now too much price love would kill it. the edge wala seems good at sub 30k. for earlier model price is 13999

      1. They will get more losses if they keep pricing to High. Even Overpriced Oppo & Vivo seem chepaer and better than Nokia. And if you compare it with Xiaomi which is undoubtedly No. 1 Smartphone Brand in India it seems price to performance ratio is 100 times higher in Xiaomi phones than Nokia.
