Yes, the new Nokia Android phones are coming to the US


Last month at MWC 2017, when the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 were announced, Nokia Mobile / HMD said that the phones would be released globally starting the second quarter of the year. However, "globally" is often a rather vague term, and it almost never includes all relevant markets. Fortunately, in this case, the US is included.

Answering to a fan on Twitter, the folks at Nokia Mobile confirmed that its new Android smartphones "will be" available in the US. This likely means that all three models will be launched stateside, but we don't have a confirmation on this yet.

Running stock Android 7 Nougat, the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are affordable devices - they will cost about $230, $190, and $140, respectively. All three models will be sold unlocked, and should feature US LTE, though they're only going to work on carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile (sorry, Verizon and Sprint users). The smallest and cheapest handset of the bunch - Nokia 3 - already received its FCC certification.

Specific details on how and when the Nokia handsets will be sold in the US should be announced in the near future (though we aren't expecting the phones to be released before May). Until we hear more about this, you can take a closer look at the three smartphones by checking out our Nokia 6 hands-on, Nokia 5 hands-on, and Nokia 3 hands-on.
