The Nokia phone that virtually everybody was gaga about back in 2000 is now slated to make a comeback at the imminent MWC in Barcelona. And as it looks, the great Nokia 3310 won't be alone.
Venture Beat has reported that HMD Global, the company that is now tasked to develop Nokia Android smartphones, is scheduled to announce three Nokia iterations at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Feb. 26. These smartphones include two Android iterations while the other one is a featured phone. As of this writing, the two smartphones are dubbed as Nokia 3 and Nokia 5. The feature phone is reportedly a revamped, modernized version of Nokia 3310, the phone that catapulted the world more than a decade ago.
Nokia 5 is expected to sport a 5.2-inch with 720p display and is tagged with a price of $200. In addition, the forthcoming smartphone is tipped to come with 2GB of random access memory (RAM) and a 12-megapixel (MP) rear camera. On the other hand, the entry-level Nokia 3 is speculated to cost around $150. Another sibling, known as Nokia 6, is also rumored to debut at the MWC, Phone Arena reported. More details are anticipated to surface anytime from now leading to their official launch before the end of this month.
Meanwhile, a modernized version of Nokia 3310 is also tipped to be unveiled at the said event. The original version, which sold more than 100 million units back in 2000, was famed for its durability and notable reliability in terms of its battery. No words about its purported features and specifications have been outed just yet but it is reportedly going to be priced at around $60.
HMD Global is set to host its MWC event this month. The three smartphones that will be unveiled during the occasion will be marketed in Europe. Details about their official launching in Asia and North America are tipped to be announced at the same event.
