Finnish telecom giant, Nokia, appears to be all set to revive its PC business with the launch of an all-new ‘NKi’ series in India. Most more likely to be designed and marketed by a licensee, a bunch of laptops seemingly sporting the Nokia brand, have reportedly acquired their Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) certification, suggesting their imminent launch. They had been licensed on November 27 and are being manufactured by Tongfang Limited in China.

Believed to have been first spotted by Tipster, Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings), not less than 9 different laptop models have acquired certification, including NKi510UL82S, NKi510UL85S, NKi510UL165S, NKi510UL810S, NKi510UL1610S, NKi310UL41S, NKi310UL42S, NKi310UL82S and NKi310UL85S. Apparently, the primary two letters within the model numbers stand for Nokia, whereas the ‘i’ stands for India, which appears to be the designated market for the devices.

While the key specs stay under wraps for now, online speculations seem to suggest that they could ship with Windows 10, which should be par for the course. It’s still not clear, however, whether these are being designed by HMD Global, which owns the global license to market Nokia-branded smartphones, or by Flipkart, which sells Nokia-branded smart TVs in India.

Meanwhile, branding rights for Nokia Android TV gadgets in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) area is managed by StreamView GmbH, which lately unveiled 7 new Nokia Smart LED TV models meant for select European markets. Either way, all other details about the upcoming gadgets, together with their ETA and possible pricing, can be a mystery, however let’s hope that we get more particulars about them sooner rather than later.
