HMD Global is at it again. After rolling out the highly successful Nokia 6 in China, the Finnish company is coming back at the fast-approaching Mobile World Congress 2017 show that kicks off in less than two weeks.
Recently, we received reports that the company will be in Barcelona equipped with at least two new phones. The Nokia 6 will be re-launched, probably confirming that it will be sold globally. In addition, there are two new phones in the shape of Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. Interestingly, HMD Global is also rumored to be working on a revamped version of the iconic Nokia 3310 to be unveiled alongside the trio.
At the time of this revelation, the tipster was only able to give out a few specs of the Nokia 5, but there was nothing about the Nokia 3 except that it will be priced at 149 euros. Now, in fresh leaks, it appears that the 3 will be the low-end variant of the trio, but it will still keep a few of the specs found on the Nokia 5.
For starters, you will find the same 5.2-inch display screen that is touted for the 5. In addition, this screen keeps the same 720p HD resolution as what the Nokia 5 offers. Under the hood, there is a different Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at a speed of 1.4GHz and is paired with an Adreno 308 GPU. While the internal storage of the Nokia 5 was not mentioned, it appears that the Nokia 3, which is the base model, will come with just 16GB of expandable storage.
The back camera will ship with a 13MP shooter while the front will come in with a 5MP snapper and as for the software, Android 7.0 Nougat will run the show out of the box. These phones have only been given European price tags, an indicator that this is the target market for HMD Global, at least for now. Hopefully, this Nokia brand will resurface in the U.S. as well as other markets as well.
