Nokia to Kick off 3310 Comeback
After the heartbreaking fall of Nokia last year through the infamous Microsoft shut down, the techno company is said to jumpstart its comeback with a new lineup of cellular devices this 2017.
HMD Global Oy (an independent Finnish company) secured the exclusive Nokia brand licensing rights in mobile phones in the late 2016. The Finnish company now plans to announce four handsets at the Mobile World Congress later this February.
According to Venturebeat, aside from the newly revealed Nokia 6 in China, but not yet elsewhere, HMD Global is hovering the idea of launching Nokia 3 and 5. With the intentions of salvaging the shoddily acclaimed handsets from the downmarket, the company is said to launch these devices with new and improved specs to deliver quality to the core features.
Unlike Nokia 6’s features of a full HD 5.5- inch display and a 16 megapixel primary camera, the other two devices will have lower specs to hit lower price range. The Nokia 5, for instance, is said to have a reduced display of 5.2 inches at 720p and a decreased image sensor of 12 megapixels.
But perhaps, the most interesting of these devices, especially for the standpoint of most nostalgic phone enthusiasts would be the comeback of the Nokia 3310. It was a cockroach of a phone, known for being the toughest, most indestructible handset to date.
The incarnation of the iconic device is said to come with an undisclosed twist, due to be revealed on HMD’s launching event on February 26 in Barcelona, Spain. Nostalgic phone users will have their trip down memory lane through the new and improved Nokia 3310, for only €59 (Php 3,146).
