Nokia 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.

At least 152 children have died in an encephalitis outbreak during the month of June in India’s eastern state of Bihar, according to local health authorities. Following a petition, India’s supreme court ordered an investigation into the epidemic.

Acute encephalitis syndrome, sometimes referred to as ‘brain fever’, has claimed lives in 20 of Bihar’s 38 districts.  In particular, the disease has gripped the Muzaffarpur district of Bihar, reaching epidemic proportions in a region already stricken with poverty and poor child health.

In 2014, an outbreak of encephalitis killed 350 children in Muzaffarpur.

A petition filed to India’s supreme court sought to end the current epidemic, accusing local and regional governments of being negligent in their response.

“[Encephalitis] is completely curable and lives of young children are being lost due to the inaction of state machinery,” the petition read.

“Most of the deaths are occurring due to lack of medical facilities in the area of outbreak,” it continued.

In response to the petition, Indian supreme court justice Sanjiv Khanna said “We issue notice to the Bihar government seeking a detailed response.”

State and national officials must respond within seven days on health conditions, according to India’s top court.
