Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 With Pure Android Nougat Launched, Nokia 6 Goes Global

The day when Finnish company HMD Global got rights to the Nokia brand name, I was a little sceptical. Will the new company live up to the Nokia legacy and will it deliver smartphones that are just a little bit special. Well, my doubts have cleared up at the Mobile World Congress 2017 going on at Barcelona. The company has launched two new smartphones called the Nokia 3 and the Nokia 5 along with a global variant of Nokia 6 which was launched as a China exclusive. HMD Global has not been ambitious but has kept its feet firmly on the ground by focusing on basics and bringing smartphone for the masses. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will see a global launch in the second quarter of 2017, until then we can take a closer look at these smartphones to see if it affects out buying decision.

You might be thinking why we are talking about the Nokia 6 again when we have linked to its previous coverage in the paragraph above. Well, there are some changes to the global variant. The global variant has 3GB of RAM instead to 4GB and in order to get 4GB of RAM you have to spend a little more on the limited edition ‘Arte Black’ version which costs a little more and has 64GB of internal memory instead of 32GB you get on the other colours. You get the same gorgeous 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass encased 5.5inch display with full HD resolution and pixel density of 403ppi. Underneath the hood we find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset which powers Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) in its purest form. When it comes to cameras we have a 16MP PDAF dual-tone flash equipped sensor on the rear and a wide-angle 8MP sensor on the front. The Nokia 6 is powered by a user non-removable 3000mAh battery. The Nokia 6 (normal variant) costs 229 Euros which comes to around Rs. 16,120.Before we forget, yes, there is a fingerprint sensor on the Nokia 6.
