Nokia is set to expand its horizons in Nepal. Beloved by many for a long time, Nokia hopes to regain its prestigious customers by bringing in its new line up of smartphones in Nepal.
The company has recently partnered with Teletalk for national distribution. Before the partnership with Teletalk, Paramount Electronics was the sole distributor of Nokia phones in Nepal. Previously, they had launched Nokia 2.2, 3.2, 3.1, 6.1 and a few others smartphones and feature phones in Nepal.
Ravi Kunwar, regional head-Asia Pacific of Nokia in an interview with Kantipur shared his upcoming plans for Nokia in Nepal.
In his interview, Kunwar mentioned, “We are global leaders in feature phones, and we are performing well in the Nepali market too. In the smartphone segment, our global mission is to be among the leading players and get listed among the top five smartphone makers in the coming three to five years.”
Furthermore, he mentioned that Nokia is planning to launch its recently launch five new feature phones and two new smartphones in Nepal.
Of late, Nokia announced new feature phones— Nokia 105 Classic, Nokia 110, Nokia 220, Nokia 2720 Flip and Nokia 800 Tough and two new smartphones— Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 in the international market. We believe that all of these devices will launch in Nepal very soon, however Nokia or Teletalk hasn’t confirmed it yet.

On rear, you’ll see a triple camera setup which hosts a 16-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and 5-megapixel depth sensor for enhanced portrait mode photos.
The Nokia 7.2 offers a similar mid-range experience but with slightly bumped internals. It sports the Snapdragon 660 chipset, that comes in either 4 or 6GB of RAM, and 64 or 128GB of microSD expandable storage. It retains the same battery as the Nokia 6.2 at 3,500mAh.
