New Nokia devices might be coming to the Mobile World Congress this year.
After selling the the mobile division to Microsoft last 2014, Nokia has no longer manufactured devices of their own. The brand is now under Microsoft who works with other companies and manufacturers to create new devices, like the Nokia N1 tablet with Foxconn. Now the manufacturers with the exclusive right to the Nokia phone brand, HDM Global might be releasing four new devices at Barcelona this February 26.
Nokia 6, the first Android-powered Nokia phone by HMD Global is only available in China officially, but it’s been in several countries including the Philippines. It has a Full HD 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 430 system-on-chip, 4GB of RAM, and a 16MP primary camera. With two more Android 7.0 Nougat-powered phones coming at the MWC – the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3, specs for both are expected to be a bit downgraded than that of Nokia 6.
Nokia 5 is rumored to have the similar chipset of Nokia 6 but only a 720p, 5.2 inches display, a 2GB RAM. These changes for Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are expected to affect the prices of the phones, with Nokia 6 having the highest retail price and Nokia 3, the lowest.
Another important announcement made by HMD is the comeback of the Nokia 3310 to the market. This time, a modern version of the classic phone will be made. Its fame rose with its very impressive battery life and almost indestructible build. Surely, this phone will bring nostalgia to those who were able to use it during their time.
