HMD Global will be taking pre-orders at select outlets for this smartphone starting from July 7. HMD Global is created and run by former Nokia employees. For all practical purposes it is now Nokia.

The Economic Times reports that the Nokia 5 and 3 will be available both online and in retail stores, while the Nokia 6 will only be available from Amazon India.

Once a best-selling phone brand, Nokia faded after it sold its handset business to Microsoft in 2014.

The Arte Black edition of the Nokia 6 - besides its fancy new glossy design - comes with 4 gigs of RAM and 64GB of internal memory as opposed to the original Nokia 6 that ships with 3 gigs of RAM and 32GB of memory.

These devices are not about super-fast or and ultra premium hardware - that will possibly be the Nokia 9 in future - but about the good smartphone experience.

"The Nokia 5 has mostly the same specs, but with a 5.2" screen, 16GB of expandable storage, and 2GB of RAM. And finally there is the Nokia 3, which may have a plastic body but its finishing and build quality make it look quite dashing. The devices will be manufactured by Foxconn in India, and sold under the Nokia brand.
