HMD Global, a Finnish company that licensed the rights to Nokia’s name, confirmed in a tweet yesterday that three new Nokia-branded phones will be coming to the US this year. We don’t have an exact date yet, but we know it will be sometime between April and June.

The three Android phones are all midrange devices unveiled at Mobile World Congress last month. The phones all feature as pure a version of Android Nougat as possible, meaning no third-party apps or UI customizations, and the promise of regular security updates.

The Nokia 6 is the largest of the devices, with a 5.5-inch display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor. It also features an eight-megapixel front-facing camera and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. The matte black, silver, blue, or copper versions of the device will retail for $242, while the glossy black will cost $315. The smaller Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will be priced at $199 and $147, respectively.
