Nokia’s Lumia lineup of smartphones was officially scrapped off earlier last year. The fans almost thought that the Finnish-tech giant will retire from the smartphone market altogether. Much to the surprise of the most, the HMD Global-backed firm finally made it to the top again. This happened after the #Company announced the revival of its classic Nokia 3310 feature phone at MWC, 2017 earlier this year. The firm also officially took the wraps off its #Android-based smartphones namely, Nokia 3, 5 and 6. While the former two fall in the mid-budget category, Nokia 6 belongs to a slightly higher segment and has managed to gain most recognition.
