HMD India: Humbled by Nokia 3 demand. Nokia 5, 6 available from mid-August

HMD India has claimed that initial demand for Nokia 3 is exceeding their expectations. In an official statement shared with Nokiapoweruser, a HMD spokesperson told us that HMD is ramping up production of Nokia 3 on priority to meet the existing consumer demand.

“We are humbled by the response to Nokia 3. Currently, we are ramping up our production for Nokia 3 on priority to meet the existing consumer demand. In the coming week, we will start production of Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 to get them ready for sales start by mid-august.”

HMD is also starting production of Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 in the coming week, notes the statement. HMD is taking “Made in India” route for manufacturing Nokia 3, 5 and 6 in India. This has allowed them to ensure better prices for Nokia Android Phones in price-sensitive Indian market. But as Nokia 3 production has been given priority to meet the existing demand, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 production will begin only next week.

The statement also reveals that Nokia 5 that went on pre-booking in India on July 7 will be available only by mid-August.

Nokia 6 sales start date is also revealed as mid-August, which sort of confirms that Amazon India may start Nokia 6 flash sale on 15 August. If you remember Amazon is the exclusive online retailer for Nokia 6 and it has promised more information about Nokia 6 sales start on July 14.

      better go for Moto or Lenovo or RedMI

      I like your thinking. Thanks for not choosing redmi or Lenovo or any other Chinese brands. They are making huge profits by selling to us and using it surround India from all sides.

    Though India is not selling Nokia 6 here in Sri Lanka I could use the model.It is very nice phone .I appreciate it and recommend to all.Good phone.

    It’s all starting to hot up. I think they will also have to increase production of the 5 & 6 when they start shipping them.

    • Why start with a Nokia 3 in the 1st place. They should have started with Nokia 6 for global release same as they did in China.
