HMD global has listed its 2018 lineup of Android and ‘Classic’ Nokia phones on its India website, thus confirming the models that will be making it to India. We already know that HMD Global is hosting an event on April 4 in New Delhi, and looks like it will be unleashing the entire MWC 2018 portfolio in India as well.

Of course, we don’t expect all devices to hit retail shelves simultaneously. The Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7 Plus, and the new Nokia 8110 should be the first few to arrive. The exorbitantly priced flagship, Nokia Sirocco, may come in later.
