Nokia India is about to launch their Lumia 1020 PureView Windows Phone 8 handset in India today at an event in New Delhi. But before the official launch in the country, online retailer Snapdeal started taking pre-orders for the handset for advance payment of Rs 2,200. Now pre-orders on the website are sold out, which could mean that there have been overwhelming response for the Lumia 1020 smartphone. All the three color, Yellow, Black and White are sold out on pre-orders. Snapdeal is expecting to start shipping pre-ordered units from first week of October.
Other retailers, including Flipkart, Saholic, HomeShop18 and Maniac Store are listing Lumia 1020 phone on their websites labelled as comning soon. Among these retailers only Maniac Store is listing the device at the suggested price of Rs 45,999. We are expecting Nokia to give it a price tag of around Rs 45,000.
Stay tuned for the official pricing and availability of the handset in India.
