Now, another BIS certification of Nokia laptops appeared on March 1. It includes a sum of ten models, of which four are new, while the other six already appeared in the earlier certification. Previously, the seventh character in all the model numbers used to be the letter ‘U’ that possibly meant Ultra, but now it is ‘T’ (for Thin?).
Interestingly, the document also mentions a different manufacturer than what it was last year. It has now changed from Tongfang HongKong Limited to China Greatwall Technology for the upcoming laptops.
The Nokia PureBook X14 has the model number NKi510UL85S and comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 512 GB of storage. So it is safe to assume that as per the model numbers, the third and fourth characters (i3, i5, or i7) describe the processor, and the ninth character (4, 8, or 16) means the amount of RAM.
Also, the second character (1, 2, 5, or 10) from the end possibly means the amount of storage, for example, 1 for 128 GB, 2 for 256 GB, 5 for 512 GB, and 10 for 1 TB. Therefore, the specifications stated besides the model numbers below are based on the reasoning mentioned above and need not necessarily be true.
Note: Format for the first six laptop models below: Old model number -> New model number.
The laptop models mentioned in the new certification are as follows:
The laptop models that were there in last year’s certification but not this time are:
NKi510UL810S (i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 1 TB storage)
NKi510UL165S (i5 processor, 16 GB RAM, and 512 GB storage)
NKi510UL1610S (i5 processor, 16 GB RAM, and 1 TB storage)
The reason behind the delay of the other Nokia laptops after the PureBook X14 is best known to Flipkart. Maybe the change in manufacturer prompted Flipkart to wait for these many months. Or maybe the company wanted to be sure of the response of the Nokia laptops before launching the whole series and thus launched only one model last year.
Within a year and a half since its first association with Nokia, Flipkart will now become the brand licensee offering the widest range of Nokia products. Flipkart currently sells Nokia Smart TVs, streaming devices, laptops, and ACs in India. Earphones will be there in the list soon.
