Everybody might have written off the once famous mobile phone maker Nokia after it became a victim of stiff competition from other OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) like Samsung, Motorola, Sony, LG and several others. But the company has bounced back after a short hiatus with the help of HMD Global and it has several handsets in the line up this year.

The company, which is known more for feature phones, has already released a few devices -- Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. The handsets are currently available in some select countries and are expected to spread to more markets in the next few months.
