After a very long wait, Nokia's new Android smartphones are almost ready to become available in the UK. The Nokia 3 will officially go on sale on July 12, priced at £129.99 SIM-free and unlocked. The Nokia 5 will arrive one week later, on July 19, costing £179.99.
You can already pre-order both models from Amazon (with a price guarantee no less), or Clove (where they are more expensive however). The latter online retailer says the aforementioned dates are official launch dates straight from HMD Global, the company currently making Nokia branded smartphones.
You may have noticed that we haven't mentioned the Nokia 6 yet, and that's because the third member of HMD's debut trio still doesn't have an official release date for the UK. As such, you can only register for updates (at the likes of Clove) if you're interested in picking this model up, and you'll be notified when something changes. Hopefully it will land in the UK soon, as it's already been on the market in China for many months.
Thanks for the tip, Matt!

They are a start-up. They need time to build all their resources and support centres. 3 months isn't enough for that. It's understandable why it's taken so long to release.
