Check out Nokia’s ‘Star Wars Day’ video below.

When we asked Nokia Mobile about the exact release date, Nokia responded by saying, “We’re aiming to release our new devices over the next few months“.

HMD Global recently sent media invites for an event on 8th May in India to have a conversation with Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global. It is speculated that a launch date for Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 3310 in India can be announced.

Nokia 6 features 5.5″ 1080p FHD display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8937 430 processor. It has 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage (and a 32 GB internal storage/3GB RAM model also). It features 16MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera.

Nokia 5 features 5.2″ 720p HD display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8937 430. It has 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. It features 13MP rear camera and 8MP front camera.

Rumours are there that Nokia 8 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage) might see light in June this year. As per the latest tweet made by Nokia Mobile, Nokia 3310 is now shipping (was available for pre-order in UK and Germany).

If you see the specifications of newly announced Nokia android smartphones, the processor chipset used in Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 is not upto the mark as compared to chipsets used in budget handsets by Xiaomi and Motorola.
