Nokia unveils new phones for Australian market

Nokia has lifted the lid on three Android-based handsets that are set to be rolled out later this year.

The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 handsets were unveiled this week in Sydney, ahead of them hitting the market in July.

Parent company HMD Global is hopeful these will be an attractive proposition to Australian consumers, as they are relatively cheap when compared with other Android-based phones.

Indeed, the Nokia 3 costs just $249, while the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will retail at $329 and $399 respectively.

As a result, they could be great value-for-money options for people who wish to avoid paying too much for a handset.

Arto Nummela, chief executive of HMD Global, believes the devices contain many of the elements that helped to make Nokia so ubiquitous in previous years.

For instance, he said they offer quality, a distinctive design and a great operating system, iTWire reports.

“86 per cent of the world uses Android,” Mr Nummela commented.

“We want to elevate it by close cooperation with Google only using Pure Android. We want to make it secure and we want you to have the latest Android security and features as soon as they are released – pure, secure and always up to date.”

Mr Nummela added that back in the late 90s and early 2000s, people “fell in love” with the Nokia brand and what it stood for.

He said HMD shares the “original Nokia passion” and wants to protect what is a highly trusted brand.
