HMD Global to launch a slew of Nokia phones at MWC 2017

It looks like we’ll be seeing a slew of Android-based Nokia phones at MWC 2017 this year. VentureBeat says HMD Global Oy, the company with exclusive manufacturing rights to the Nokia brand, will be launching four new phones at the convention this year.

HMD Global has already unveiled the Nokia 6, at least in China, but will be bringing it to MWC 2017, which hopefully means it’s on its way to other markets. At the event, we’ll also see the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 as well. The Nokia 6 will be the most high-end device, with a Full HD 5.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel rear camera.

The Nokia 5, on the other hand, will feature a smaller 5.2-inch 720p display, the same Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel camera. The Nokia 3, set to be an entry level Android device, will have even lower specifications than that.

Pricing for the Nokia 6 is rumored to start at €249. The Nokia 5 will cost a little less at €199 and the Nokia 3 at €149.

According to VentureBeat, we’ll also see a modern version of the legendary Nokia 3310. It was popular for its long-lasting battery as well as its tank-like durability, and now HMD Global is bringing it back, presumably for around €59, according to sources briefed on the matter.

Unfortunately, much of this doesn’t seem to be coming to North America, at least not initially. HMD Global Oy is focusing on the European market, so any plans for North America availability are still unknown.

HMD Global Oy will announce everything on February 26 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona.
