As per the latest news, Finnish telecom giant, Nokia is set to revive its PC business with the launch of an all-new ‘NKi’ series in India. On 27th November, a bunch of laptops seemingly sporting the Nokia brand has reportedly received their Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) certification. They are being manufactured by Tongfang Limited in China.
This was first spotted by a tipster named Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings). He posted that at least nine different laptop models have received certification. The list includes NKi510UL82S, NKi510UL85S, NKi510UL165S, NKi510UL810S, NKi510UL1610S, NKi310UL41S, NKi310UL42S, NKi310UL82S, and NKi310UL85S.
As per experts, the first two letters of the model numbers stand for Nokia, while the ‘i’ stands for India.
As of now, there is no official information about the key specifications but there is some online speculation that suggests the devices to run on the Windows 10 operating system. It is not clear whether these are being designed by HMD Global, or by Flipkart. Note that HMD Global owns the global license to market Nokia branded smartphones while Flipkart has been the seller of Nokia branded smart TVs in India.
Note that the branding rights of Nokia Android TV devices in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) region is controlled by StreamView GmbH. Recently, StreamView GmbH unveiled as many as 7 new Nokia Smart LED TV models for European markets. There is also no official information regarding the pricing of the upcoming Nokia devices.
