Nokia-licensee HMD Global has confirmed that the company's Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 Android smartphones will be available from mid-August. At India launch, HMD Global said that Nokia 5 will be available during the first week of July while Nokia 6 was said to become available starting July 14.

The Finnish company says that it is ramping up production of Nokia 3 in order to meet demands before rolling out Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 smartphones.

In the coming week, we will start production of Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 to get them ready for sales start by mid-August," a HMD spokesperson told Nokiapoweruser.

In a statement, HMD Global says that local production of Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will start in the coming weeks but Nokia 3 is given priority in terms of production. The company further clarified that pre-orders of Nokia 5 will only be fulfilled in mid-August.

HMD Global announced its first Android smartphones - Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 - for global markets at MWC in Barcelona. The handsets were said to become available at major markets by the end of June. HMD Global has collaborated with Foxconn to locally assemble its smartphones at latter's Chennai facility.

Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 are offline-exclusive smartphones priced at Rs 9,499 and Rs 12,899 respectively. Nokia 6, on the other hand, is an online-exclusive smartphone available from Amazon India at Rs 14,999.
