Nokia at MWC 2017 has unveiled a series of Android smartphones after the introduction of the Nokia 6 at CES 2017. The Nokia 6 is now going global, and the other two phones that are introduced today include the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.
The CNC manufacturing and anodized process used to make these Nokia phones give them a perfect finish on the exterior. Nokia is putting a focus on the build quality as that has been one of the USPs for the devices from the company in the past.
The Nokia Android phones will have the pure Android experience with proper security (monthly security updates) and up to date software updates that are sent by Google. The entire Nokia range will have Google Assistant loaded in place of Google search.
The Nokia 6 is going global and is no longer limited to the Chinese market. It will be available in the different markets and the price is set at 229 Euros, while a special edition of the Nokia 6 will be sold for 299 Euros. To know more about the Nokia 6, read here.
A 5.2-inch display is on the front of the phone. A perfect 3D shape made of aluminum. The design resembles the previous Nokia Lumia phones. The Nokia 5 will retail for 189 euros and it will be available in four colors.
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset along with 2GB of RAM and there is 16GB internal storage. The device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS and while on the back there is a 13-megapixel camera, the front has an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The color options include blue, silver, matte black, and copper.
Priced at 139 euros, the Nokia 3 is also made of aluminum frame but the back is made of polycarbonate and it is a gorilla glass protection on the display just like the other Nokia smartphones. This is the basic one with a 5-inch display, and it is powered by the MTK 6737 quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and there is 16GB internal storage on this one too.
The phone also runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and as said above, it is the Pure Android experience at offer. An 8-megapixel camera is located on both, the front and back that might offer not-so-good but decent imaging.
