Nokia made a pretty big splash at MWC 2017, when they showcased the Nokia 3310 (2017), together with the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 midrangers. There’s also the Nokia 6, that was unveiled in an international version this time around. And now all of these models are coming to India.
The debut takes place on May 8th at a New Delhi event that’s hosted by HMD Global. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer with HMD Global will be attending. Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 run Android 7.0, with the firm promise of receiving software updates as soon as possible, after they’re available. We already knew that Nokia was bringing the phones to India, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa in Q2, so it seems this is really happening.
Nokia 3310 (2017) is actually already up for preorder in India, but that listing is unofficial. The device is priced at $60, a bit higher than the recommended price of 49 euros promised at MWC 2017. The Nokia 3310 comes with a 2.4 inch QVGA color display, 2G connectivity, Nokia Series 30+ OS, 16 MB storage and a 1200 mAh battery. Nokia 6 is the highest specced model of the 4 newcomers. It brings a 5.5 inch Full HD screen, with a 2.5D glass panel and a fingerprint scanner below the display.
Priced at around $250, the device packs a Snapdragon 430 CPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as a 3000 mAh battery. There’s also a 4 GB RAM version out there, the Arte Black one with 64 GB of storage too. Nokia 5 has a 5.2 inch screen, Snapdragon 430 CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a 13 MP back camera and 8 MP front shooter. This one is priced at $206.
Finally, the Nokia 3 is more of a budget offering, priced at $152 and sporting a polycarbonate body and metallic frame. There’s a 5 inch screen here, a quad core 1.3 GHz CPU, 16 GB of storage and 8 MP back and front camera.
