The Nokia 6 smartphone launched in China last month for $245, and now the company behind the Android smartphone has announced it will be available around the world.

There’s also a new special edition of the 5.5 inch phone, with a glossy black design and more memory.

HMD Global says the Nokia 6 will retail for about 229 Euros ($242), while the Nokia 6 Special Edition is priced at 299 Euros ($316).

Oh, and Nokia is also launching some brand new phones, including the smaller Nokia 5 and cheaper Nokia 3.

Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 features a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor.

The glossy black special edition model has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

In other words, the Nokia 6 is a mid-range phone that could give other devices in this category a run for their money. I’m looking at you, Moto G5 Plus.

Nokia 5

The Nokia 5 is a smartphone with a 5.2 inch display, an aluminum frame, and four color options: blue, copper, black, and silver. It has the same Snapdragon 430 chip as its sibling, but only 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

This phone is expected to sell for 189 Euros $200.

While the Nokia 5 is positioned as a cheaper, smaller alternative to the 6, the company also has a lower-priced budget phone called the Nokia 3.

Nokia 3

HMD describes it as having flagship design and an entry-level price of 139 Euros ($147).

This phone has a 5 inch 1280 x 720 pixel IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass, a 2,650 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a MediaTek MTK6737 quad-core processor.

Despite the fact that this is the cheapest phone in the new Nokia lineup, the Nokia 3 does have a few nice features including NFC, a fingerprint sensor, and an 8MP wide-angle (84 degree) front camera. The phone has an aluminum frame and polycarbonate body.

The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 should all be available worldwide starting in the second quarter of 2017. All three phones will ship with Android Nougat software, and HMD is promising to deliver monthly security updates and regular OS updates.
