Nokia remains on the top of the mobile market until android and iOS release their first phones back around 2010. After that Nokia made some worst decisions to just make windows phones. They tried to gain some shares in the smartphone market but failed to do so. In 2014 Nokia is sold to Microsoft. Microsoft also failed and sold the Nokia brand name to HDM. HDM currently holds the rights of making phones under the brand name of Nokia.
Nokia Announcement at MWC About Up Coming Nokia Android Phones
Nokia at MWC event on 26 Feb announces three Nokia Android phones. They also unveiled the Nokia 6 which is already a big success of Nokia in China.
Nokia 6 | Nokia’s First Android Phone | Upcoming Nokia 6 Android Phone
Earlier this year not released Nokia 6 Android phone in China with a record 23 seconds sold out with 1 million pre-registered sales. The success of the Nokia 6 android phone in china is a good confidence booster for Nokia as a brand. This success also motivates them to launch Nokia 6 Globally before June.
Nokia 6 released date is not confirmed. But Nokia will release it in the second quarter. because they are also planning to launch a flagship release at the end of the year. The price can be somewhere around 200-250 pounds in the UK.
Nokia 6 comes with 5.5 inches Full HD Gorilla glass screen with a unibody of aluminum. The phone comes out with Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GBRam and 32GB internal storage. Nokia 6 is currently coming in 3 colors with matte black as my favorite. Two other colors are blue and copper. It also comes in shiny arte black special edition. Other main differences of Arte Black edition is 64GB internal storage and 4GB Ram. Both editions of Nokia 6 support SD card up to 128Gb. Nokia 6 measures 154 x 75.8 x 7.85mm in dimension. Finger print sensor is pretty good with multitasking keys on each side. Front and rear cameras are 16 and 8 MP respectively. The dual speaker and amplifies is an amazing feature for music and videos addicts. Nokia 6 will comes out of the box with android 7.1.1 Nougat.
More or less Nokia 6 is a square shape phone easy to grip but difficult to hold for long periods of time. Design is somewhat similar to flagship premium phones. Good design and low price certainly boost some sales for Nokia in near future.
The only drawback is that you can buy same type of processor in Moto G5 which is available at $169.
This phone is not the biggest bang in the mobile phones market but surely create some ripples in old Nokia users. With good price tag and amazing features, Nokia 6 is a good middle ranged phone for android users in 2017.
Nokia 5 | Nokia’s second announced Android Phone | Upcoming Nokia 5
Nokia 5 is genuine middle-range android smartphone which is expected to be released in the second quarter. Its expected price is around 160 pounds which is lower than Moto G5.
The Nokia 5 comes with 5.2 inch IPS HD Gorilla glass screen in a uni aluminum metal body. The design is durable and easy to grip and hold. Nokia 5 will come in 4 colors (Matte black, silver, blue and copper). One of the major drawback of Nokia 5 is its screen resolution which is 1280 x 720. On the other hand Moto G5 offer full HD screen in almost similar price range.
The processor is snapdragon 425 just like Nokia 6 and Moto G5. Other specs are Adreno 505 graphics and 2Gb Ram and 16GB internal memory with SD card support up to 128GB, 13MP rear and 5 MP front camera, 3000mAh non removable battery and android version 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
Overall it’s a good lower-middle range phone with some extraordinary specifications. The only problem might be running games and multitasking on 425 processor. Nokia will surely make some middle range customers happy with their price tags for sure.
Final verdicts are held back for more testing of the Nokia 5 android phone.
Nokia 3 | Nokia’s Third announced Android Phone | Upcoming Nokia 3
Nokia 3 is a budget-oriented smart phone with a price tag of approximately around 120 pounds in UK. Mostly this type of market was recently captured by Moto G4 and G5.

Its body is made up from polycarbonate with aluminum frame. Design is premium considering its excellent price tag. With 8.48 thickness Nokia 6 is designer for one hand easy grip and usage.
It comes in all 4 colors ( Matte Black, silver, blue and copper) just like its other two counterparts. There is a small camera bump in back which does not effects its premium looks at all.
Nokia 3 will defiantly comes out of the box with android nougat 7.0 in its original form. Rear and front cameras are 8MP and are not as good as other two counterparts.
