Three new Nokia phones expected at the end of February

20.02.2017

HMD Global Oy which now has the rights to the Nokia brand is planning to go big at the Mobile World Congress later this month. According to well-known leaker Evan Blass, the Finnish manufacturer will be presenting four new models, including an homage to the old Nokia 3310, one of the most legendary phones of the brand.


According to Blass the models will simply carry numbers instead of names, similarly to the Nokia 6, which was already released in China back in January. In addition to this already known handset, HDM is reportedly going to reveal the Nokia 3 and 5. The higher the number, the better the specs, at least according to the leak.

For instance, the 6 features a full HD 5.5-inch display and 4 GB of RAM, while the 5 will supposedly have a screen of 5.2 inches at a 720p resolution. Accordingly, the price of the 6 is expected to be around 250 dollars, the 5 around 200 and the 3 around 150 dollars. This pretty much shows that Nokia will be focusing on the lower price segment of smartphones, at least for starters.

The leak was discussed a lot in tech media worldwide, but most didn’t talk about the new phones at all. Instead, they mostly focused on the also mentioned relaunch of the 3310. If those numbers don’t mean anything to you, just look them up in a search engine – you’ll definitely recognize the phone by the pictures. The 3310 has been labeled the most reliable phone in history and generally has quite the reputation. The resilient reiteration of this old classic will reportedly cost around 50 dollars. At that price, it might well be worth it as a robust second phone that doesn’t have to be charged too often.

If you’re as excited as we are, check back with us next week – we’ll be sure to keep you posted on any official info from Nokia as the MWC draws nearer.

    According to the BBC, the clock is ticking for Spotify.
