New Delhi: Of late, numerous reports, pointing to the price mentioned in the "source code" of Nokia's 808 PureView page, are doing the rounds, which speculate that the soon to be launched 41-megapixel Nokia 808 PureView smartphone will be priced at Rs 29,999 in India. But, the company rebuffs such reports, and claims it to be a dummy price, and not the actual price.
"We outsource certain chores, and for that we have to give price related information. So, in such cases, we furnish a dummy price, and not the actual (true) price. In this case also (the one mentioned in the source code), Rs 29,999 is a dummy price and the 808 Pureview will not be available for this price," said the spokesperson.
However, Nokia refused to give any further information about its pricing. But, Nokia has firmly stated that the phone will not be priced at Rs 29,999.
The phone is expected to be priced at above Rs 30K and the possibility of it being priced below the 'leaked' price seems low.
The company further says that the actual price of the phone in India will be revealed during its launch.
With this statement from Nokia, it could either mean that the company is smartly trying to dispel current rumours about the phones pricing floating in the market or it could mean that Nokia does not want its buyers to get misled, and hence is furnishing true information.
But, we hope to hear soon from Nokia about the launch date of the Nokia 808 PureView and its actual price.
