March 1, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The opening day of MWC 2017 had witnessed returners Nokia grabbing the center stage. Apart from expanding the Nokia 6 device globally, the HMD-backed company has also released two new Android devices along with a classic revival.

All the three new Android devices from Nokia, namely the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will be arriving in global markets during second quarter of this year. The Nokia 6 is the same device that was launched in China a month ago.

With a Full HD screen that measures 5.5-icnh diagonally, the Nokia 6 comes with mid-powered specs including a Snapdragon 420 SoC, 16 MP camera, 2.5D glass protection, 3000 mAh battery. The device will be made available in two RAM variants: 3 GB with 32 GB storage and 4 GB with 64 GB storage.

The Nokia 5 is the trimmed down version of Nokia 6 that features a 5.2-inch 720p display. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 430 processor which however is paired with a RAM of only 2 GB. ON the storage front, the Nokia 5 will have 16 GB in-built. The front-side packs an 8 MP camera while the rear-side packs a camera of 13 MP. The battery remains the same as that of in Nokia 6.

The Nokia 3 is the budget phone of the Android trio from Nokia, and it features a 5-inch Full HD display with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB inbuilt storage. The processor used is the Mediatek MT6737 which comes with the Mali-T720MP2 GPU. On the camera front, the Nokia 3 features a front cam- rear cam combo of 8 MP. The battery provided is a non-removable Li-ion battery of 2650 mAh capacity.

The last of the batch is the Nokia 3310, the revival of the classic indestructible model from Nokia. The revived version however features only a mere resemblance with that of the former, and it also gets an upgrade with a color display brought to the device along with the rest like camera, data support etc. Apart from that, users will also be able to play the classic ‘Snake’ game in the device using Facebook Messenger.

Despite a massive rollout, Nokia has kept away from rolling out a flagship. This follows the hint given by the company CEO that the new batch only forms the beginning of its new journey. There’s lot more to expect.

Besides, the company has also given out a strong indication about its new design norms, which include strong body builds instead of the plastic builds which Nokia previously used for its Lumia branded Windows smartphones. Nokia has also revealed that its Withing range of health-focused equipment will re-launched as Nokia this summer.
