Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 smartphones are set to launch in India tomorrow. HMD Global, the company which owns the Nokia brand, had released an invite with the words, ‘save the date’ for an event scheduled on June 13. The company has now confirmed that it will launch the smartphones tomorrow. HMD Global’s invite says: “Let’s join hands and welcome a new era of Nokia smartphones.” Since the invite has the word ‘smartphones’, one can expect that all the three Nokia devices will be unveiled tomorrow. Nokia phones are built by the Norwegian company HMD Global, as Nokia itself is now working on network technology. Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are the new smartphones, and all three run pure stock Android 7 Nougat. HMD Global has already promised an Android O update for these phones, which could be another plus point. Earlier, a few reports had claimed that the company may not unveil all the three devices in India at the same time and that the budget Nokia 3 could be the first phone to officially go on sale in India. Earlier, HMD Global told NokiaPowerUser that it will be rolling out the entire series of smartphones in the second quarter of 2017.
