HMD might be looking to launch affordable Nokia 4G phone in India to rival the JIO Phone. The feature phone market is the strongest in countries like India and the fast adoption of the 4G network has led to the launch of affordable 4G feature phones from JIO, Micromax, and Karbonn. Feature Phone has been Nokia’s niche and launching an affordable 4G phone in India might become reality. According to reports the company is working on a device with QWERTY keypad with 4G functionality.
Features of the upcoming Affordable Nokia 4G Phone in India:
If reports are to be believed than the upcoming 4G phone by Nokia and its technology has been cleared by FCC and Bluetooth certification authorities making its way to India soon. There are four models spotted in total the- TA-1047, TA-1060, TA-1056, TA-1079 and TA-1066. The limited knowledge of Nokia 4G phone in India is that one or more of these devices carries a QWERTY keyboard.
This is surprising since the keyboard once a symbol of Blackberry phones is now almost obsolete on their devices. Another rumour claims that the devices will be running Series 30 and their might be chance of WhatsApp connectivity since it was offered once on the platform before. We just hope that this list of four Nokia 4G Phones in India also includes a 4G version of the Nokia 3310.

Price and Launch of Affordable Nokia 4G Phone in India
The devices were cleared by FCC in US a few days ago which suggests the Nokia 4G Phones in India will launch globally as well. Since our market is the largest one in terms of cheap feature phones there is all likelihood that the phones will make their way here.
Since the JIO Phone has already registered million of bookings, other telecom operators are looking to partner with phone manufacturers to bring affordable 4G services in India. BSNL too partnered with Micromax for the Bharat 1 feature phone to give unlimited services at 97 Rupees a month. Nokia 4G phones in India could mean that the user will be able to use the handset with any of the operators and that gives the company an edge over the competition.
