Great news, Nokia fans! HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer that markets phones under the Nokia brand is reportedly announcing four handset models at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show. The firm is said to be explicitly targeting the European marketplace, while distribution to other regions remains unknown - for now.

What Are The Four Devices?

According to Pocket-Lint, two new Android 7.0 Nougat-powered devices, specifically the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, are set to be announced at the MWC. Not only that, they will also be re-launching the Nokia 6, which was originally China-exclusive when it was launched last month.

And just when you think that is all, HMD also plans to showcase a "feature phone." The feature phone is a modern version of the Nokia 3310, which was primarily known for its plentiful battery life and a nearly indestructible build.

About The Nokia 3

Venture Beat reported that the expected retail price of the Nokia 3 will go for €149, which translates roughly at around $158. As for its specs and features, it was only mentioned that this entry-level smartphone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat and will be less powerful by almost half of the Nokia 6's specs and features.

About The Nokia 5

Just like the Nokia 3, the Nokia 5 is also said to be relatively weaker compared to the Nokia 6. However, it will be a bit more powerful compared to the Nokia 3.

Why? Well, the thing is because of its expected retail price. According to the report, the Nokia 5 will cost €50 ($53) less than the Nokia 6 and €50 more than the Nokia 3, putting the Nokia 5 price at around €199 or roughly $211.

In regards as to what other information there is to know about this device, the Nokia 5 will have a display of 5.2 inches only at 720p and a RAM storage capacity of 2 GB. Also, its rear camera is said to be 12 MP, which is technically 4 MPs down compared to the Nokia 6.

About The Nokia 3310 (2017)

This is perhaps the most interesting among the four smartphones that HMD Global Oy plans to announce at the upcoming MWC. But sadly, there are only two things known about this device.

First, the Nokia 3310 (2017) is expected to cost around €59 or roughly $63, making it less cheap than the Nokia 3. The other info is that it will be a "modern version" of the original model that was released at the turn of the millennium as a replacement to the also-popular Nokia 3210.

To be honest, I'm really curious as to what a "modern version" of the Nokia 3310 will look like or even feel like. I mean, will it still have that massive battery life that could last of up to 3-5 days or will it still have that nearly indestructible build that is much appreciated and known for. But whatever it is, I hope it will retain those two qualities mentioned.

About The Nokia 6

Well, about this device, it was launched and released last month and was also a China-exclusive phone that many tech fans of the Nokia brand were wondering why. But nevertheless, it still had great sales.

As for its price, it is expected to cost around €249 ($264). It features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is packed with a Snapdragon 430 chipset.

It features 64 GB internal memory with a 4 GB of RAM and has an expandable memory option of up to 256 GB. And lastly, it comes with a 16 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front camera.
