HMD, the Finnish company that’s run by former Nokia veterans and is in charge of developing Nokia Android phones, plans to announce several new devices at MWC 2017. The company already confirmed its presence at MWC, and now we have (unofficial) info on what it intends to unveil at the event.
According to Venture Beat, HMD will announce three brand new handsets: two Android smartphones, and a feature phone. The upcoming smartphones should be called Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.
The Nokia 5 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch 720p display, 2 GB of RAM, and a 12 MP rear camera, while costing around $200. We assume that this is the Nokia “Heart” that was spotted last month in a benchmark test. As for the Nokia 3, this is supposed to cost around $150, being an entry-level smartphone (with features yet to be revealed).
In addition, the Nokia 6 (currently available only in China) will also be showcased at MWC 2017.
What about the aforementioned feature phone? Surprisingly, it’s said that this will be a “modern version” of the famous Nokia 3310 (pictured above). Originally released way back in 2000, the Nokia 3310 was sold in over 100 million units, gaining fame for being extremely durable and reliable, while offering long battery life. There’s no word on the features of this alleged modern take on the Nokia 3310, but we know that the phone might cost around $60.
HMD will host its MWC 2017 event on February 26. Reportedly, all the handsets unveiled on that day will be marketed in Europe. For now, we don’t have details on the possible release of new Nokia phones in North America, but we certainly hope to hear more on this soon. Stay tuned.
