HMD confirms all its Nokia phones will hit the shelves in the second half of Q2

The end of Q1 2017 is upon us, but HMD's new Nokia-branded smartphones haven't been yet introduced on the market. The Finnish company vaguely stated that Nokia 3, 5, 6 and the new 3310 would make their debut in various European markets in Q2.

However, Tomislav Himbele, Head of Marketing for Eastern Europe at HMD Global, recently narrowed down the release date for all the Nokia-branded phones the company announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) last month.

According to Himbele, all three Nokia smartphones, along with the 3310 feature phone will be available on the market in the second half of Q2. Although many of them (if not all) are already up for pre-order in different European countries, it looks like they won't hit the shelves until at least mid-May.

Also, HMD's official pointed out the prices may vary by country due to the VAT value. To recap, the Finnish company announced the Nokia 3 would be available for purchase for €139, while the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 should cost €189 and €229, respectively.

The Nokia 6 Arte Black Limited Edition will sell for €299, but it's like to be available in select markets. As many of you already know by now, the new Nokia 3310 feature phone is priced to sell for €49.

Why does he need to mention something that hasn't been announced or leaked as yet?

The only other Nokia getting ready for market is P1. That will be an high-end handset and the company has been busy talking to dealers in secrecy.

Look, Cosmin understands VAT taxes! Can we educate the other guys that always convert from VAT to non VAT countries incorrectly? :)
