We all remember our first time – using a Nokia phone, that is. Owning one of their trusty mobiles was a veritable rite of passage for a generation. Now they’re back with a brand new line of Nokia smartphones. Unfortunately, they come sans Snake, but you could probably download an app for that.
The Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 are dropping in Australia late July. Running pure Android and with a high build quality and sleek looks, the phones are being offered at very competitive price points; ranging from $249 – $399. We had a short play of the new phones at the launch recently and found them pretty impressive. They feel nice to hold, each with comfortable, curved edges. The Nokia 3 sports an aluminium frame, while the 5 and 6 are wholly crafted from aluminium.
With a pure Android operating system, the phones run relatively fast. The 5 and 6 feature Snapdragon 430 processors, allowing them to deliver fairly powerful performances. In terms of camera performance, the phones are somewhat underwhelming. Then again, considering they’re priced on the lower end of the budget spectrum they’re pretty decent for what they are. Both front and back cameras on the Nokia 3 are 8mp. Nokia 5 steps it up with 13mp on the back and 8mp on the front, while the Nokia 6 retains the 8mp front but has a 16mp back camera. Being the top of the range phone in the new Nokia lineup, the Nokia 6 features dual speakers and Dolby Atmos sound, which is really quite stellar.
If you’re in the market for a budget-friendly smartphone, the new Nokia devices are well worth considering. They’ll be available in Australia late July.
