HMD Global launches Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 in India

After a long wait, HMD Global announced their three new smartphones in India; Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. These phones were earlier launched in China with a different build of Android Nougat 7.0 without Google Play Services support. HMD Global is the manufacturer while Nokia is in charge of the software. Nokia has strongly emphasized on the build quality and pure clutter-free Android without any bloatware that comes along with their devices. The Global/Indian variants of Nokia phones run on pure “Stock Android” with minimal additions over the top. Nokia has promised frequent security patches and a guaranteed Android “O” 8.0 update whenever it is available for all of their devices.  Lets dive into the details and see what separates these phones from each other.
