As everyone knows, just before Apple and Samsung conquered the smartphone business, the major player in the market was the Finnish company Nokia, thanks to a series of incredible mobile devices that were the greatest in a time when the key for success was resistance and a decent battery life. Definitely, one of the most important exponents of this era was the Nokia 3310, and believe it or not, this handset is going to be rebooted and launched along Nokia´s new smartphones 3 and 5 at the Mobile World Congress event on February 26.
Rebooting The Nokia 3310 Is Great Strategy
Apparently, the Nokia 3310 will be priced at $62, and even when it will remain with the appearance of just a feature phone, this cult classic is updated for 2017. Of course, releasing it along with the new smartphones seem as an outstanding strategy from the company to make an emotional connection with the customers, not only because of the fact that this is one of the most expected comebacks in the history of technology, but also because the brand still have some popularity in the market.
It Remains Unknown If The Nokia 3 And 5 Could Arrive To The US Market
In any case, in addition to the incredible Nokia 3310, the Nokia 3 will be the company´s entry-level smartphone, and it will be priced at $158, which seems as a quite attractive cost for a mobile device of this kind. On the other hand, the Nokia 5 could be priced at $211 and would sport a 5.2-inch display, 2GB of RAM and 12-megapixel camera, which definitely represent a step down in terms of specs.
Although including the Nokia 3310 with these two other mobile devices seems perfect, the only sad detail is that these phones are not expected to arrive to the U.S. market, given the fact that the company is mainly focused in Asia and some nations in Europe. Nevertheless, considering that the Nokia 6 managed to expand from China to other markets, is quite possible that these mobile devices might come to North America.
