Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 Global Launch Happening Soon, Phones Cleared by Wi-Fi Alliance

Nokia 5 and Nokia 3

Nokia has taken the smartphone world by storm ever since it announced the Nokia 6 in January. With the momentum already set, the Finnish company is getting ready to unveil two other phones in the shape of Nokia 5 and Nokia 3, both of which were first presented to the world at the Mobile World Congress 2017.

Not so long ago, reports emerged claiming that the Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 3310 will soon be joining the Nokia 6 in going global, with over 120 markets in the company’s sight. Even though these markets have not been confirmed, we know the phones will be in Europe, Asia, U.S. as well as Africa.

A few days ago, the Nokia 6 was certified by the FCC, an indicator that the phone will soon be available in North America. This Nokia 6 appearance was later followed by the Nokia 3, but the latter was spotted at the Bluetooth SIG.

Now, in another series of certifications, the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 have been cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance, which confirms that the two phones will soon be released globally, just like it had been mentioned earlier. Apparently, the entire Nokia collection launched at the MWC, including the iconic Nokia 3310, are expected to start selling this coming April, but some markets may have to wait until May.

The certified Nokia 5 has model number TA-1044 while the Nokia 3 has been confirmed with three models carrying numbers TA-1020, TA-1028 and TA-1038. Of course, these are meant for different regions, but we still don’t know where each model will be headed just yet.

When they are finally unveiled, the Nokia 3 will be selling at a price of about $150 while the Nokia 5 is valued at about $200. These price tags could be subject to change depending on markets, but the variation shouldn’t be huge!
