Nokia is back! The Finnish company that was once the leader in the mobile phone industry made a huge comeback with the launch of the Nokia 6 in January.
At the time, the phone was exclusive to the Chinese market, but thanks to a subsequent re-launch at the MWC 2017, the Nokia 6 was joined by the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 towards making a global comeback. So far, the trio has already made it to quite a number of markets across the globe, but we are still waiting for the phones to make an official launch in Kenya, which should happen in the coming months, if not weeks.
Just before the phones hit the Kenyan market, we thought it’s important that you get ready for them by not just knowing what each phone brings to the table, but by looking at them side-by-side in order to tell what makes them different from each other.
In case you didn’t know, the Nokia 6 is the current high-end offering from the company. Right below it is the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 comes in as the budget model. Where the Nokia 6 has an opening price tag of 229 euros, the 5 and 3 are priced at 189 euros and 139 euros, respectively.
So, how do the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 compare against each other? Here’s a tabulated head-to-head comparison of the three phones in terms of specs, features, and their prices.
