HMD has just unveiled three new devices for the Nokia brand at MWC. In addition to the Nokia 6, which is now going to be sold globally, there’s now the Nokia 5, and the Nokia 3!

The Nokia 5 is a more affordable and toned down version of the 6. With a smaller 5.2-inch HD display, and is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon processor, along with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. It sports a 13MP main camera, and an 8MP selfie snapper. The device will run on Android Nougat out of the box.

The Nokia 3 is the most compact of the bunch with a 5-inch display, and runs on a 1.3GHz Quad-Core CPU with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 2,650mAh battery. It features 8MP primary and secondary cameras, and also runs on Android Nougat out of the box.

And just when we thought the show was over, they threw in something that was, well a bit expected based on rumors, the 2017 version of the Nokia 3310!

Mind you, the new 3310 has an LED flash, 16GB of internal memory with MicroSD card support, a MicroUSB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. But best of all, it has up to 22 hours of talk time, and up to A MONTH of standby time. It also comes preloaded with the all-time favorite game Snake (which will also be available in Facebook Messenger), and the classic Nokia ringtone that we all miss.

As a special announcement, the Nokia 6 will finally be sold globally with a price of 229 Euros (around PhP12,000), along with a special edition named Nokia 6 Art Black (due to its Piano Black finish) which costs 299 Euros (around PhP16,000).

The new Nokia phones are expected to be available sometime in Q2, with the Nokia 5 at 189 Euros (around PhP10,000), Nokia 3 at 139 Euros (around PhP7,000), and the 3310 Reboot at 49 Euros (around PhP2,500).
