The Nokia 7.1 Android One smartphone has received a price cut. It is not immediately clear if the price cut is permanent. Moreover, the significant reduction in selling price isn’t visible across the platforms on which the Nokia smartphone sells.
The Nokia 7.1 Android One handset launched quite recently. The capable mid-range smartphone sported an inaugural price of INR 19,999. However, the device now reportedly sports a substantially discounted price tag of INR 19,099.
Nokia 7.1 Android Smartphone Receives A Price Cut On Flipkart
It is important to note that it is only the Indian e-commerce platform Flipkart that is currently selling the Nokia 7.1 for INR 19,099. Moreover, the INR 900 discount may not be permanent. Incidentally, the Nokia handset is also available offline in physical retail outlets. Nokia‘s vast network of dealers across India have the Nokia 7.1 for sale.
The Nokia 7.1 ships in a single memory configuration of 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The capable mid-range Android smartphone is available in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel color options.
It is important to note that only the Gloss Midnight Blue color variant of the phone appears to have received the price cut on Flipkart. The Gloss Steel color variant of the Nokia 7.1 is selling at INR 19,650 on the website, which is lightly less than original retail price.
In addition to the surprisingly deep discount of INR 900, Flipkart also has quite a few attractive offers. Buyers using SBI Credit Cards can get 10 percent instant cash discount. There’s a five percent discount on Axis Bank Credit Card when the device is bought through EMI option, and an extra five percent off for Axis Bank Buzz Credit Card users. Besides Flipkart, the Nokia 7.1 is also available on the official Nokia e-Store.
