At MWC 2017, HMD Global got us pretty excited about their new Nokia smartphones, running pure Android. We couldn’t stay indifferent in the face of the reimagined 3310 either, so the only thing missing was a definite launch date. Now, the manufacturer has finally spoken about the release time of all four devices #mobilemagic
In a statement released for NokiaPowerUser, a HMD representative mentioned a global release for Nokia 6,5, and 3 phones. The smartphones would be up for grabs “in 120 markets at same time in Q2 2017.” This means you’ll have to stay on the lookout starting with April. Worst case scenario, the launch will be postponed until June, but not later.
As for the Nokia 3310, the feature phone should come in the same interval of time, but not in all countries. In the United States for example, it’s probably going to be a no-show, since the handset uses 2G networks which are no longer supported there.
The three Nokia smartphones are a breath of fresh air for those who have been waiting for the brand return. All three come with stock Android 7.0 Nougat and have Google Assistant built-in.
