Nokia is going to launch not just one but three different smartphones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017.
An interesting speculation is that the company is bringing the popular 3310 back in an all-new flavor with new design and new gen specifications.
The phones will be sold in Europe after a long hiatus and pricing for these models in the continent has leaked ahead of its MWC reveal. While it is known that Nokia is making a comeback into the market, no one expected the company to revive models and bring so many new phones into the market at once. There is a strong dearth for good Android and feature phones from reputed brands. The top of the line is dominated by Motorola, Samsung while Huawei and other brands are slowly catching up.
Despite all the new arrivals, the position that Nokia held for more than a decade is still intact. The new Nokia 3310, Nokia 5 & 3 phones might just push the company back to stardom. According to leaked news, the Nokia 5 which is a followup to the previously launched Nokia 6 will feature a compact 5.2-inch display. It will sport a resolution of 1280×720 pixels with 2GB of RAM and 12 megapixel rear camera. The phone is rumored to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor which is already being used in the Nokia 6. The phone will be priced at €199 while the lower end model Nokia 3 will go with €149 with even lower specifications.
The smartphone manufacturer seem to have a strong focus on the entry level market rather than trying to compete with flagship phones. The specifications for the other two phones is not known at the moment. The 3310 will be very similar to the original model released back in the year 2000 and will most probably be a feature phone. The assumption is made based on its price tag which is just €59 making it an extremely affordable variant to go with. When you go for a feature phone, you get the basic features, internet connectivity but more importantly the battery life on such phones are insanely high. You can easily go for an entire week without having to charge them and still be able to make calls.
Nokia is showing very little interested in the North American market as their focus is primarily on China and the European region.
