After much anticipation, HMD Global finally unveiled new Nokia smartphones at MWC 2017. At an event in Barcelona, the Finnish company revealed Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. These smartphones run on the Android operating system which Nokia claimed will be pure and without any bloatware.

While most had anticipated a flagship Nokia device, HMD Global rather revealed mid-range smartphones. Oh, and how can I forget the revamped Nokia 3310 which was unveiled right at the end, a move which surprised all who were watching the event. I should also mention that our beloved Snake game can now be downloaded on Facebook Messenger.

While most of us are really excited at the Android-powered Nokia phones, this move by HMD Global is still a risk considering how saturated the smartphone market is getting and the way Chinese manufacturers are growing at an exponential rate. But the company believes they can fight off these competitions through their seamless designs, the pure and secure Android software and a powerful build.
