Telkom to offer new Nokia Devices

The new Nokia range of devices, including the Nokia 1, the Nokia 6.1 and the Nokia 7 Plus devices, are available on Telkom FreeMe contracts from 20 June 2018, with the exception of the Nokia 7 Plus, which is only available from 20 July 2018.

The devices are available on FreeMe 1GB, 2GB, 5GB, 10GB, 20GB and Unlimited for both new and existing Telkom subscribers, on prepaid, post-paid and hybrid plans. All Nokia devices now come with the latest version of Android, ensuring that customers’ favourite applications can be downloaded and enjoyed.

The Nokia 1 is a complete Nokia smartphone experience that’s accessible to everyone, with the ability to download YouTube videos for offline viewing, front and rear camera, and Android 8.1 (Go Edition). The Nokia 6.1 comes with a 16MP rear camera and 8MP front camera with Zeiss optics. It is robust enough to handle everyday knocks. The Nokia 7 Plus is a phone made for creators and the ability to deliver pictures rich in colour even in poor conditions. The dual camera 12MP and 13MP sensors, with Zeiss optics and 2x optical zoom delivers vivid colours that bring photos to life. On the other side, the 16 MP front camera with Zeiss optics and great low light performance takes picture perfect selfies day or night.

“We are excited to be able to offer these incredible smartphones with our unbeatable FreeMe packages and South Africa’s best data network,” said Telkom Consumer and Small Business spokesperson Telkom’s Managing executive for Sales and Distribution, Megan Nicholas.
