Nokia's comeback was marked with three Android smartphones. During this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, license-holders HMD Global unveiled the "Nokia 3," "Nokia 5," and "Nokia 6" phones. Expect the new Nokia phones to get regular Android and security updates, just like other Android smartphones.
It is not reported as to how long the new handsets will get updates, though. Android phones normally get major updates two years after the launch, but that does not always apply to cheaper devices. This means that the update for "Nokia 6" would be sooner than the "Nokia 5" and "Nokia 3." "Nokia 3" is the entry level Android in this group.
Phone Arena reported that Nokia confirmed that the updates will be monthly. This means that the phones will be as secure as Google's own "Pixel" and "Nexus" phones, as well as other popular phones from big names like Samsung.
Among the three Nokia Android devices, "Nokia 6" has the biggest display with 5.5-inch full high-definition. The "Nokia 5" and "Nokia 3" have a 5.2 inch HD display 5-inch display, respectively. Camera specs for the three phones are 8-megapixel wide-angle front and 16-megapixel main shooter for the "Nokia 6;" 13-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel selfie camera for "Nokia 5;" and 8-megapixel main camera for "Nokia 3."
Nokia's goal is to become one of the main smartphone players in the market. They have partnered with HMD Global, and with their user-friendly phones and affordable price tag, the brand is expected to become popular among Android lovers.
Nokia's smartphones will be launched in the second quarter, and CNBC reported that HMD is aiming for a gloabl launch, saying that they had over 500 different retail and carrier partners in 120 countries. Last year, HMD Global has acquired intellectual property needed to make Nokia phones, and this includes branding the technology. They have also partnered with Foxconn to make the devices.
