With all that’s happened in the smartphone world since, Mobile World Congress 2017 seems like an age ago. Indeed, it has been three months since Nokia (well, HMD Global) unveiled a trio of Android smartphones alongside its rebooted Nokia 3310.
While the 3310 can now be snapped up for £50, we’ve remained none-the-wiser on when then Nokia 3, 5 and 6 Android handsets will arrive (although the latter is already available in China).

Now the company has shed a little more light on the situation, promising a release before the end of this quarter. In English, that means before June is over with.
Since the first entry-level and mid-range devices were announced at MWC 2017, attention has turned to the potential for higher-end and flagship Android phones to join them.
The since-deleted video showed the rumored Nokia 9 phone, complete with a dual-lens rear camera and perhaps the Nokia 8, which was heavily tipped and perhaps even spied during CES 2017?
The video itself was created by a “a longtime Nokia brand photographer who now works with HMD” according to evleaks, so there’s little doubting its authenticity.
We’ve been excitedly awaiting the next developments in HMD’s Nokia reboot, so a pair of higher-end devices that could tackle the big guns would be most welcome.
