Nokia has promised that its new lineup of smartphones will finally go on sale by the end of June. Fans have been eagerly anticipating the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 — all of which are powered by Android — since they were first unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in February.
HMD Global, the company manufacturing these devices under the Nokia name, originally promised that all three would go on sale worldwide before the end of Q2 2017. That ends in June, but most of us were hoping it wouldn’t actually take that long for new Android-powered Nokias to hit the market.
Now Nokia has confirmed on Twitter that the trio are still set to arrive “worldwide before the end of Q2 2017.” Of course, it’s unlikely that every country will get the same release date, so we expect some markets to get their hands on them before others. The Nokia 6 has already gone on sale in China where it sold out in just one minute on launch day.
@Manojvpl We plan to release our upcoming Smartphones worldwide before the end of Q2 2017. (June) Stay tuned for updates.

Pricing for most countries is yet to be confirmed, but we have seen European price tags, which indicate the Nokia 6 will cost €229 (approx. $240, £195, AU$315), the Nokia 5 will cost €189 (approx. $200, £160, AU$275), and the Nokia 3 will cost (approx. $150, £115, AU$200). We’re also still waiting for confirmation of the Nokia 3310‘s release date outside the U.K.
