Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 Officially Announced in India; Prices Start at Rs.9,499

Nokia has finally launched its much-anticipated Android smartphones in India- the Nokia 3, the Nokia 5, and the Nokia 6. HMD Global has priced the three phones aggressively as they come with a steeper price tag, compared to the competition. But as we’re always saying- the comeback Nokia brand is all about build quality and user interface, rather than specifications and value for money.

HMD Global, the parent company of Nokia, will also offer door pickup and service in 100 cities of India. Furthermore, a total of 300 Nokia Mobile Care service centres will be launched across the country. The three phones will boot stockish Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, which is the primary highlight. Read on to know more details about the newly announced Nokia smartphones.

Moreover, it lacks a fingerprint scanner. The Nokia 3 is priced at Rs. 9,499, which is clearly an overpriced product because there are better smartphones in the same price range. It is an offline-only model.

Nokia 5

The smartphone is backed by a 3000mAh battery with fast charging support. The Nokia 5 will be an offline-exclusive model priced at Rs. 12,899. And yes, it’s an overpriced product.
