It has been months since Nokia announced its trio of Android-running smartphones. However, only the Nokia 6 is available for purchase and its sale is even limited to Mainland China and Hong Kong for now.
Although pre-orders of the Nokia 3, 5, and 6 have begun in some European countries, a world wide availability hasn’t been mentioned yet until recently. New report says that Nokia plans to make its new smartphones available globally before the end of June 2017.
