Nokia also to cut jobs, says slow 5G progress not cause for layoffs.

Finnish company Nokia is set to launch Nokia 6.2 aka X71 in India on June 6. The teaser from the company on Saturday claimed the launch event would be in India as well as in Italy.

A tweet by Twitter account Nokia Anew suggests that the Nokia 6.2 will launch with a price similar to the Nokia 6.1.

The Nokia 6.1 was launched in India with price starting at Rs 16,999. It means the Nokia 6.2 should fall in the same segment.

The Nokia 6.2 is rumoured to be the global variant of the Nokia X71 that was launched in Taiwan a few weeks ago.

In terms of specifications, the phone was unveiled as a mid-range offering with a metal-glass sandwich design and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Nokia has made several small to medium-sized acquisitions as part of a strategy to build up a standalone software business to deliver higher profit margins than its classic communications hardware products.

The device features a 6.39-inch full-HD+ PureDisplay with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Powering the device is a Snapdragon 660 processor, aided by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.

Global ride-hailing major Uber on Wednesday rolled out a driver rewards programme called “Uber Plus” in India that will let drivers earn points for rides so that they can win free doctor consultations, concessions on education modules, access to micro loans, faster airport pick ups and savings on vehicle maintenance costs.

These points will be earned by the driver partners in 13 cities over a fixed period of every three months and can be then accumulated to unlock higher rating tiers such as blue, gold, platinum and diamond which, in turn, will let them access better rewards, informed the company.

“Under the programme, the Uber drivers get access to four tiers. To unlock these awards, they need to maintain a certain threshold rating and keep a low cancellation rate to unlock access to these benefits,” Prabhjeet Singh, Head of Cities, Uber India and South Asia, told IANS.

“We have always worked towards prioritising their welfare and making them feel valued, respected and appreciated. ‘Uber Plus’ is an effort in that direction and will enable our driver partners to access greater benefits during their everyday journeys,” he added.

The rewards and offers are only available to drivers who use the Uber driver app, are participating in Uber Plus and meet applicable criteria.

Asked if this initiative will help in bringing down the number of cancellations, Singh replied: “We encourage ri ders to flag such cases if the driver cancels because the mode of payment is not cash, etc. That will help us take strict action against such drivers.

“We want to encourage behaviour which helps improve the marketplace reliability. Less the cancellation, the chances of the trip getting completed goes up and, overall, the network efficiency increases.”

An initial pilot phase was carried out in Delhi-NCR, Chandigarh and Mumbai and now, Uber Plus is being rolled out across 10 new cities, including Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Pune, Kochi, Guwahati and Jaipur.
