HMD Global, the owners of the Nokia brand, have announced three new Android devices: the Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and the Nokia 5.1.

Further, it sports a 8-megapixel rear-camera with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter and stereo front facing speakers. It runs Android Oreo GO and will be available at $115 USD, in select markets — Canada not being one.

The Nokia 3.1 uses a 5.2 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and octa-core Mediatek processor. One variant features 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage while another ups it with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Lastly, the Nokia 5.1 features a 5.5-inch an 18:9 aspect ratio with a 443 pixel-per-inch screen. The sensor has moved to the rear and features a Mediatek processor with the same RAM and storage configurations as the Nokia 3.1. On the front, the handset uses an 8-megapixel wide angle lens and on the rear it uses a 16-megapixel shooter. The phone is available for  €189 ($283.90 CAD).

Neither the 3.1 or the 5.1 will be officially available in Canada, however, the previous Nokia 3 and the Nokia 5 are available at Canada Computers, so it’s possible these devices will be as well.

Like many other Nokia handsets, these devices will all receive the Android P update.
