Nokia will pay Homage to the 3310 and Launch the Nokia 3 and 5 at MWC 2017
Nokia is planning to relaunch the Nokia 3310 phone with a price tag of €59 according to new reports. The company will launch the 3310 as a reminder of the legacy of the brand and what values it holds close to itself. The phone will be a dumb-phone aka feature phone and will be a newer enhanced Nokia 3310.
HMD Global Oy, the manufacturer behind the return of Nokia will also launch the Nokia 6 to the world, from an exclusive China only launch. The Nokia 6 will launch for €249 with a full HD, 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 430 system-on-chip, 4GB of RAM, and 16 MP camera with storage at 32 GB. However, the company is planning to launch the Nokia 5 with a 5.2 inch 720p display with the same Snapdragon 430 chipset and 2 GB or RAM along with a smaller sensor 12 MP camera.
The Nokia 5 will also be cheaper by about € 50 priced at €199. The Nokia 3 will be an entry level Android phone and will initially sell for €149, dumbing down specifications further to match the price tag. While the entry level return of Nokia does look rather dull. The relaunch of the iconic Nokia 3310 surely has us excited.
Nokia has the launch event set of 26th February in Barcelona, and all will be disclosed then.
