HMD is planning for a big-bang launch of its Android smartphones Nokia 3, 5 & 6 in 120 markets simultaneously, the company told us in an official statement. Now, while release dates are still hazy, we can expect it to start happening sometime in May. We earlier shared what we gathered from our sources and retailers, about release dates in various markets in our article.
Now, while Nokia 6 had been already spotted passing through various certifications, all Nokia 3 variants (LATAM, APAC and ROW) were recently seen at FCC. Nokia 5 which has been absent from certifications till now has been now finally seen passing WiFi certification along with Nokia 3.
Only one Nokia 5 variant TA-1044 has been seen in WiFi certification though and as you can see, it is the LATAM or Latin America variant. We earlier reported about sightings of other Nokia 5 variant TA-1053 in benchmarks. As in the case of Nokia 3, we can expect to see APAC and ROW variants for Nokia 5 too getting certified soon.
All four variants of Nokia 3; TA-1020, TA-1028, TA-1032 and TA-1038 have passed Bluetooth certifications. But only three variants TA-1028, TA-1020 and TA-1038 were caught at WiFi certification authority. You can read all about Nokia 3 variants and their regional affiliations by clicking here.
Though May still seems far away, it is certainly getting closer to the ultimate release date and we will keep you updated.
