Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 launching Tomorrow - 13 June
Nokia's comeback has been the talk of the town recently. Ever since HMD Global announced the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 at MWC 2017 back in February, fans have been clamouring to get their hands on the devices. The wait is now finally coming to an end as HMD Global is set to launch the three Android powered smartphones in India tomorrow.
HMD Global, a Finnish company that was given the license to design and make Nokia branded mobile phones last year had sent out invites for the launch earlier this month. The company has now confirmed that the event will see the launch of their Android smartphone trio.
The three smartphones are one of the most hotly anticipated handsets of the year and rightly so as they mark the comeback of the once iconic Nokia brand in India. A few weeks ago, HMD Global had launched the new Nokia 3310 in India, a re-incarnation of the legendary Nokia 3310 for Rs 3310.
All three Nokia smartphones are set to come with 100 percent stock Android out of the box and the promise of timely updates.
