The mid-ranged Nokia 7.1 which was launched in October last year for a price of Rs 19,999 is now available for much lower pricing making it an extremely attractive offer. The smartphone from Nokia has previously received price cuts and discounts on the online e-commerce platforms. But this time around an offline Mumbai-based smartphone retailer Mahesh Telecom has tweeted that the smartphone is now available for a price of Rs 16,999, which is Rs 991 lower than its current online price of Rs 17,990 on e-commerce platform Flipkart.
The offline retailer has been known to accurately reveal the discounts being offered in the offline space. There are no other details on the tweet and all it specifies is the price which means that the customers will have to check for other offers including the EMI and other options at the store itself.
