The smartphone features aluminum body, Corning Gorilla Glass and has used 3D glass thermoforming technology for casting and features with rounded corners. However does it have capabilities to dethrone other smartphones in the same category, let’s check it out.

Final Observation and Verdict:

Nokia smartphones were responsible for mobile revolution around the world. However with these new Android based phones, it is desperately trying to gain fair share of its lost legacy. We do not know when this phone will be launched in India, however with current pricing it is going to face a stiff competition with Xiaomi, Oppo and Samsung. We think, it is not the best of the pricing, and should have been in range of Rs. 15000 to Rs. 20,000. Additionally, we think battery is big turn-off since we would have expected something in range of 5100 mAh. We will have to watch how phone performs in China market before it is unleashed in other parts of the world.
