Less than two weeks ago HMD Global unveiled Nokia 5.1, 3.1 and 2.1, renewing most of its affordable smartphones line-up in one day. On May 29 the three devices were unveiled, but since that day we are waiting for them to hit the shelves. Now, the first info about their launch has started to surface. Nokia 3.1 has been spotted on listings of Amazon USA, but it is currently out of stock and listed as coming soon. This means that the company is probably getting ready to launch its new low-end device in the United States.

Amazon U.S. lists the Nokia 3.1 with a price tag of $159, that is exactly the same announced by HMD Global on May 29. In the meantime, Nokia 5.1 has been certified by FCC in four variants. The versions are identified by the codenames TA-1088, TA-1081, TA-1075 and TA-1061. The first and the second variant are the ones with dual SIM slot, while the other twos are the single SIM variants with the support to NFC. According to HMD Global, Nokia 5.1 will be launched with a listing price of $219 which roughly translates into €189. The handset should be made available starting from July.

In case you do not remember, Nokia 3.1 and 5.1 are affordable device powered by 18:9 displays (5.2 and 5.5 inches respectively).
