Nokia saw a lot of hard times in the past. The Finnish company sold its mobile division to Microsoft, putting an end to an era of Nokia-branded phones. However, Nokia is coming back on the market. HMD Global, a Finnish company now holds rights to launch Nokia-branded phones.
Back in 2017, HMD Global announced an Android-based Nokia 6 following months of endless rumors. Nokia 6 is a mid-range smartphone, but it sports a lot of exciting things, like a Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, and 16 MP rear shooter.
Nokia 6 was initially available in China but was expanded to international markets. The device received a wide welcome from users worldwide, with praise directed at its beautiful design and smooth performance.
HMD Global announced two more Nokia phones, called Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 following the success of the Nokia 6. Both devices are currently the best-selling phones in emerging markets like India and China.
Last month, the Finnish smartphone maker unveiled three Nokia-branded devices, including Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 5.1. The Nokia 2.1 is a low-cost phone that is powered by AndroidGo. The device is expected to target emerging markets this year, where it will compete directly with other Chinese phones.
Nokia 3.1 is another addition to low-end smartphone segment. The device comes with more power than the Nokia 2.1 as it is fueled by a MediaTek processor. Basically, the device offers a smooth and fast performance, allowing users to handle their basic tasks.
Nokia 5.1 is a mid-range phone with prices starting at 189 Euros. The device sports a 5.5 inch Full HD display and a premium design. Nokia 5.1 is expected to dominate the mid-range segment this year.
According to reliable sources, Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 5.1 will make their way to the US following the launch event. However, it remains unclear when three models will hit stores in the country. Last week, reports claimed that B&H Video will bring the Nokia 3.1 to the US.
Rumors say that all three devices will be available later this year in the US to meet the huge demand during the holiday’s shopping season. If this is the case, HMD Global and Nokia will face a lot of competition in the world’s number one smartphone market.
