According to tech website VentureBeat, HMD Global, the manufacturer currently licensing the Nokia brand name on phones, are going to announce three new Nokia mobile devices at their Mobile World Congress event on February 26th.
Following on from the Nokia 6, that launched in China at the beginning of this year, HMD Global will announce the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, both lower end Android 7.0 smartphones than the 6. VentureBeat are also claiming a modern version of the iconic Nokia 3310 will be announced. The Nokia 6 is also expected to be made available to markets outside China this month.
The Nokia 5 is expected to arrive with the same Snapdragon 430 CPU, but will have half the amount of RAM, at 2GB, and 12 megapixel camera, compared to 16MP on the 6, and a 5.2 inch 720p display, rather than the 5.5 inch 1080p found on the 6. The Nokia 5 is rumoured to be heading straight to European markets and will cost €249.
The only details reported about the Nokia 3 is that it will be an entry level smartphone priced at €199. As for the “modern 3310” device, it is set to cost €59, indicating it could be a feature phone, perhaps with the excellent battery life and durability the old Nokia 3310 was so famous for!
