Nokia is set to release a trio of new Android smartphones in the UK, and their reasonable pricing has been drawing attention.

The devices have been manufactured by HMD Global and will be made available over the course of the summer. They will all run on Android Nougat, the latest version of Google’s operating system.

The Nokia 3 is an entry-level smartphone and will be on sale on July 12th for just £120. It features a Mediatek 6737 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage with microSD expansion.

It will come with a 720p five inch display, with 8MP cameras on both the front and rear.

The company is also releasing the Nokia 5, which is a more mid-range device. It will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB of RAM and a larger 5.2 inch 720p screen. It will offer a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing one.

The phone features a fingerprint scanner and an aluminum body. It is set to retail for £180 when it goes on sale on August 16th.

Rounding off the trio is the Nokia 6, which is very much a mid-range smartphone. It will come with a 5.5 inch 1080p screen and is clad in aluminium. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor and 3GB of RAM.

The Nokia 6 will also have 32GB of storage, 16MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras and will be on sale on August 2nd for £220.

Nokia’s latest phones have been called good value, but there are rumours that the company will release more HMD Global-manufactured devices. It is thought that the Nokia 9 will be the first of these, with Trusted Reviews predicting that it will come with a flagship-challenging dual camera array.
