As part of its "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative, Telecom services provider Bharti Airtel and HMD Global on Monday announced a partnership to offer affordable 4G smartphones.
"Nokia devices have a solid brand resonance among customers and we believe that the partnership offers a great proposition to customers looking for quality devices at great prices," Ajai Puri, Chief Operating Officer (India and South Asia), Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.
Both the devices would come bundled with a special Airtel recharge pack of Rs 169 offering 1GB 4G data per day and unlimited local and STD calling. "We are delighted to partner with Airtel for their 'Mera Pehla Smartphone' initiative offering our powerful devices Nokia 3 and Nokia 2. We at HMD are focused at offering great value to our consumers with such partnerships," added Ajey Mehta, Vice President and Country Head-India, HMD Global.

Similarly, another set of recharges worth Rs 3,500 over the next 18 months will make the customer eligible for the second installment of Rs 1,500.
