HMD Global has sent out press invites for an event on October 11 in India where the company is expected to make an ‘important announcement’. The media invite doesn’t mention anything about a product launch event, but we expect the company to launch the Nokia 7.1 and the Nokia 7.1 Plus in India on the scheduled date, following their announcement at another event on October 4.
