Nokia to launch smartphones in Bangladesh in June
Nokia yesterday announced that its smartphones will be available in Bangladesh from June, as the handset maker aims to grab a big chunk of its previous market share.
The company made the announcement at a press meet at the Westin hotel in Dhaka.
Three models -- Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 -- will be sold at a price range of Tk 12,500 to Tk 22,500, said Sandeep Gupta, regional general manager of Asia Pacific, Thailand and Emerging Asia, at the press conference.
Nokia, previously the leading handset brand in Bangladesh, is targeting the middle-income users this time.
“Bangladesh is a very important emerging market for us and that is why we will launch these sets here first,” said Gupta.
The smartphones combine superior craftsmanship, distinctive design and powerful entertainment features with a pure Android experience, said Nokia.
At the same time, Nokia has also declared the launch of its Nokia 3310 from June in Bangladesh at a price of Tk 4,250.
Flann Gao, communication director of HMD Global, Henri Matilla, head of product marketing of Asia Pacific, and other senior executives were also present at the ceremony.
