Flipkart, India’s homegrown e-commerce marketplace, today announced the launch of ‘Made-in-India’ Nokia air conditioners – marking the global technology brand’s entry into the home appliances segment.

The range will be priced starting Rs. 30,999 and will be available on Flipkart from December 29, 2020.
With people increasingly spending more time at home – healthy air, clement temperatures, seamless smart technology, and customized cooling become vital factors that influence the purchase decisions for consumers.

Over the course of last year, we have launched superior products, at the back of our extensive consumer understanding, to bring offerings that are customized for the needs of Indian consumers. Smart home appliances have paved their way into households that ask for ‘more’ from their devices, and hence with this latest launch of Nokia air conditioners we wanted to bring innovation beyond just cooling – to give both multifunctional and environmentally friendly experience to consumers.”
