    Among this weekend’s MWC announcements was the news that new Nokia smartphones would have a global launch.

The design across the range is simple and clean. Plus, a decision to install stock Android 7.0 on every phone is also welcome.

    The Nokia 6 has already been on sale in China, with the lower specification 5 and 3 due in the next couple of months. Rumours of a global release had been played down, with some thinking different models may be announced for regions outside of China.

    We now have confirmation though that Europe will be receiving the same handsets. We are currently waiting on exact pricing and release dates for all three phones.
