Connecting people again: Nokia 5, 6 will be available by mid-August

Nokia made its comeback last month by launching 3 Android operating smartphones - Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

After making a comeback with the launch of three Android operating smartphones last month, handset-maker Nokia's mid-range phone Nokia 5 will be out in stores by August 15. In addition to this, Nokia 6 will be sold exclusively on Amazon, reported Gadgets Now.

Nokia 6 registration starts on July 14 on Amazon. It will be available for sale on Amazon in mid-August.

HMD Global, the Finnish company affiliated with Nokia, mentioned in the company statement that they are prioritising to wind up the production of Nokia 3 "to meet the existing consumer demand" and will then begin the production of Nokia 6 and 5 next week, "to get them ready for sales starting by mid-August."


Speaking to a Croma customer representative, she said that Nokia 3 is not available on their online store because of lack of stock. She also said that Nokia 3 is very fast moving in all the Croma stores.

This may be because the handsets range between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000 and offer the latest Android updates.
