New Nokia Smartphones announced for India, Pricing is too high for the Specs they offer

New Nokia Smartphones announced for India, Pricing is too high for the Specs they offer
HMD Global yesterday announced the Nokia 2.1, 3GB RAM model of Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 5.1 for Indian markets. The devices will be available starting August 12th via Paytm Mall, Nokia's website, and Offline retail stores.

The Nokia 2.1 is priced at ₹6,999, Nokia 3.1 (2GB) at ₹10,499, (3GB) at ₹11,999, and Nokia 5.1 at ₹14,499. It seems that Nokia love adding ₹1000 - ₹2000 to their retail prices year-over-year. 

Last year, the Nokia 3 was launched with a price of ₹9,499 for the base variant, while the Nokia 5 was ₹12,899. Such a price increase, with these specifications.

Nokia 3.1 has a 5.2-inch HD+ Display, MediaTek 6750 CPU with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, 2990mAh Battery. Nokia 5.1 (₹14,499) is powered by Helio P18, not even Helio P60 which can be found in Realme 1 (₹ 10,990 - 4/64GB), 16MP Single Rear Camera, 8MP front shooter, 2970mah Battery... uh

The Pricing seems too high for the Specs they offer. I personally would choose Motorola Moto G6, or Redmi Note 5 Pro over Nokia 5.1 for that price.

"The latest release of Android is here! And it comes with a heaping helping of artificial intelligence baked in to make your phone smarter, simpler and more tailored to you. Today we’re officially introducing Android 9 Pie."

This release has version PPR1.180610.009, PPR1.180610.011 for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, PPR1.180610.009, PPR1.180610.010 for Pixel and Pixel XL.

Android 9.0 P is Ready for Pixel Smartphones according to Verizon

Android 9.0 P is Ready for Pixel Smartphones according to Verizon
According to Verizon's Software support page, Stable Android 9.0 P is ready for Google Pixel Smartphones with Software build PPR1.180610.009 and latest August 2018 Security Patch.

Verizon has also mentioned the changes and features you'll be getting along Android 9.0 P including new and simpler UX with gesture navigation, slices, and app actions.

"Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update for your Google Pixel. Android 9.0 P improves your mobile experience with several new features and enhancements. This update also includes the latest Android security updates and bug fixes."

Slices

Slices are dynamic interactive templates that provide a rich UI experience when using Search and Assistant. For quick access to desired actions and apps, click on the Search bar and begin typing in the app name.

App Actions


App Actions help you get to your next task more quickly--playing your favorite Spotify playlist, for example--by predicting what you want to do next. App Actions are arranged throughout Android in places like the Launcher, Smart Text Selection, Play Store, Google Search and Google Assistant. With Android P, we're going beyond simply predicting the next app to predicting the next action you want to take. We call this feature App Actions.

Simple (UI/UX)

We're introducing a new system navigation. The design recognizes a trend towards smaller screen bezels—the borders between a screen and a phone's frame--and places an emphasis on gestures instead of hard to press buttons at the edge of the screen.
  • Swipe up a single clean home button to see an updated Overview, where you can resume recently used apps in a more glanceable view
  • Smart Text Selection works in Overview, so you can tap on some text and get an action to launch relevant apps
  • You can quickly tap one of 5 predicted apps, or continue to swipe up to get to All Apps
So... Stable Android 9.0 P Drops today?
