Ahead of the launch tomorrow, Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart has put out a microsite for the upcoming smartphone. The teaser page is using the same video and image used by Nokia Mobile India on its social pages, which strongly suggests that the smartphone will be exclusive to Flipkart. In addition to the teaser image shared by Nokia Mobile India, Flipkart’s microsite for the smartphone features Bollywood music director trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

They feature in a video titled “TwoOfAKind” which ends with the message “coming soon to Flipkart”. It is not clear whether TwoOfAKind is hinting at some kind of a feature or it has to do with the launch of two different phones on the same day. There are reports of HMD Global launching the Nokia 5.1 Plus alongside the Nokia 6.1 Plus at the event in Delhi tomorrow. There is a possibility that the message simply refers to partnership between the Indian e-commerce player and HMD Global.
