HMD Global launched the first Nokia-branded phone in January. The Nokia 6 is a mid-range Android smartphone that sells for about $245 in China.
HMD Global Oy is the Finnish company that acquired the right to sell Nokia-branded smartphones from Microsoft last year. The company also includes some former Nokia executives, so the Nokia influence on these new phones isn’t just skin deep.
According to Blass, here’s what we can expect HMD to unveil at Mobile World Congress later this month:
- Nokia 6 – a 5.5 inch full HD phone with a 5.5 inch phone, a Snapdragon 430 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 16MP camera for €249
- Nokia 5 – a 5.2 inch, 720p model with SD 430, 2GB RAM, and a 12MP camera €199
- Nokia 3 – Entry-level model for €149
The company also reportedly plans to launch an update to the classic Nokia 3310 candybar-style phone. There aren’t many details about this new model yet, but the original Nokia 3310 launched in 2000 and earned a reputation as a workhorse of the pre-smartphone space thanks to its durable design and strong feature set.
