Ever since the announcement of new android phones in 2017 Q1, Nokia enthusiasts have been waiting for the company to reveal exact release dates. While Indian users may get their hands on new Nokia phones, the rest of the world still has to wait further.

An Indian newspaper revealed intricate detail of Nokia marketing strategy in an exclusive report. It claims that Nokia is planning for a phased-out strategy to market the new android based phones. “All three will not be available in one go. Nokia 3 may go first followed by Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. But by end of June, all three may be available in India”.
