This event holds further significance for the Indian audience, as the same phone is expected to be launched in India on a later date. A few days ago, Nokia had sent media invites for the India event scheduled for December 10th. Of course, pricing would be set keeping the Indian market in mind and will be revealed at the event on December 10th, but other features are most likely to be carried forward for the India variant.
