HMD Global’s new Nokia-branded smartphones are now making their way to the UK. After launching in February of this year and slowly heading to select markets, HMD Global has now confirmed that the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will be available in the UK within the next six weeks.
The Nokia 3 will be the first device to land, going on sale July 12 for £119.99, followed a couple of weeks later by the Nokia 5 on August 2 for £179.99. The Nokia 6, meanwhile, will arrive August 16 for £219.99; we’re yet to learn through which channels the phones will be available.
The Nokia 3 features a 5-inch 720p display, quad-core MediaTek processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space. There’s also an 8 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera and 2630 mAh battery.
The Nokia 5, on the other hand, is home to a 5.2-inch screen, 720p display, octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space. You’ll also find a 13 MP camera on the rear, 8 MP camera up front, and 3,000 mAh battery inside.
The Nokia 6 is the only device to house a 1080p screen, which arrives on a 5.5-inch display. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 430 chipset, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space (a 4 GB/ 64 GB variant is also available). The rear camera comes in at 16 MP, and there’s an 8 MP sensor on the front, while a 3,000 mAh battery provides the power. All three of the phones launch with Android Nougat.
As the device lineup was revealed mere months after HMD Global was officially established in December 2016. As such, we felt that these were a (somewhat understandably) safe collection of handsets, despite our excitement to see Nokia phones back on the market.
