HMD Global is expected to launch a new Nokia-branded Android flagship smartphone at the upcoming MWC 2017. And now, an online report has suggested that the company will be launching as many as three new handsets at the event.
According to a report by VentureBeat website, HMD Global will launch Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 smartphones at its MWC event. But the most exciting bit of news coming from the report is that the two Android-based smartphones will be joined by a ‘modern’ version of Nokia’s legendary 3310 feature phone.
Nokia 5 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC paired with 2GB of RAM. Having a 5.2-inch HD display, it’s expected to come with a 12MP rear camera. The smartphone is likely to have a price tag of 199 (approximately $211). Meanwhile, Nokia 3 will be an entry-level Android handset with a starting price of 149 (about $157).
The report claims that HMD Global will also launch a re-imagined version of the 3310, which is one of the best selling phones of all time.
Last month, a report surfaced online suggesting that a smartphone likely to be called Nokia P1 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona.
According to a report in Russian website Worket, Nokia P1 is a high-end smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor and coupled with 6GB of RAM.
The report further adds that the smartphone features a 5.3-inch display protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The device will also come equipped with a fingerprint sensor and quick-charge capabilities.
For photography, the smartphone is expected to sport a 22.6MP rear camera with Zeiss-certification. It will run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and is also expected to come with IP57 rating which makes the device dust and water resistant.
