MWC 2017: Nokia 6 Makes Its Global Debut with Three New Phones

Nokia is back! No doubt this is the most highly anticipating and exciting news at this year’s MWC! HMD Global has officially announced that the Nokia 6 is going global alongside with the announcement of three new phones — Nokia 5, Nokia 3, and the reborn Nokia 3310.

Nokia 6

Announced earlier this year in China, the Nokia 6 is finally going global. That’s not all! The company also introduced the Nokia 6 Arte Black Limited Edition. Specs wise, the Arte Black Edition is same as the Chinese model — 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, 3,000mAh battery, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The global version Nokia 6 (non-Arte model), however, only has 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.

The Nokia 6 will retail at an average global retail price of €229 (Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper) and €299 (Arte Black).

Nokia 5

Coming down, we got the Nokia 5, which packs slightly less powerful specs. The device has a 5.2-inch HD IPS LCD display covered by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass.

Nokia 3

The Nokia 3 sports a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display covered by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass, same as the Nokia 5. Its build material is reminiscent of high-end Lumias in those old days — an aluminum frame filled in with soft, sculpted polycarbonate and topped with Gorilla Glass.

The device has a 2.4-inch QVGA display and is running on Nokia Series 30+ OS. It has 16GB16MB internal storage, which is expandable via MicroSD card. There’s also a 2MP rear camera with LED flash on its back as well.
