The HMD Global Oy has already booked a slot to reveal its new Nokia branded smartphones at Mobile World Congress trade show later this month. The Finnish based company recently launched its first Android-powered Nokia 6 smartphone in China. As the company is holding a pre-MWC event, a new report has surfaced claiming that Finnish manufacturer will officially launch two more Nokia Android-powered smartphones along with Nokia 6 at MWC in Barcelona.
The report comes from Venture Beat popular leaker Evan Blass. According to him the company will announce two new Android 7.0 Nougat powered phones called Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. Citing unnamed sources, Blass said that the Nokia 5 will have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor like the Nokia 6. The new phone however will sport a 5.2-inch display (720p) instead of a 5.5-inch display found on the Nokia 6.
The report also claims that the Nokia 5 will have half the RAM of up to 2GB, compared to 4GB RAM in Nokia 6 and carry a 12-megapixel image sensor. The Nokia 6 in Europe is supposed to be retailing for €249 while the Nokia 5 is expected to sell for €199. Evan however did not shared any hardware detail on the Nokia 3 smartphone except for claiming it to be an entry level Android smartphone with a price supposed to be €149.
Interestingly Blass reveals that HMD Global will bring a revamped version of Nokia’s classic feature phone, Nokia 3310. The Nokia 3310 known for its long battery and durability is expected to be priced at €59.
HMD Global will hold an official pre-MWC event on February 26 in Barcelona, Spain, where the company is expected to unwrap the official details of the upcoming Nokia-branded phones.
