Just a few days after rumblings of a sequel to the Nokia 3310 first started emerging, a new report has backed up the assertion and added a launch date to the mix. Not only that, the leak also claims that HMD Global is going to launch 3 other phones besides it.
A source briefed on HMD’s plans told VentureBeat that the Nokia 3, 5, 6 and updated 3310 will be announced on February 26 at the MWC 2017. All are affordable handsets, going against previous speculation that the brand was planning on outing a premium flagship offering called the P1.
The Nokia 6 has already been unveiled in China and will likely maintain the same set of specs for its MWC debut including its 5.5-inch 1080p display, Android 7.0 Nougat OS, 4GB of RAM, and 16MP primary camera. It might be priced at €249 (roughly $264 or Rs 17700). On the other hand, the Nokia 5 may go for €199 (approx $211 or Rs 14100).

The Nokia 5 could posses the same Snapdragon 430 processor as the Nokia 6 but sport a smaller 5.2-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM, and 12MP rear snapper. As for the Nokia 3, it will serve as the entry-level member of the group as far as smartphones go with a €149 (about $158 or Rs 10600) cost.
Finally, the upgraded Nokia 3310 is supposedly going to be a modern version of the classic feature phone. It may hit stores at €59 (around $63 or Rs 4200). HMD is reportedly targeting the new devices towards the European marketplace. Plans for other regions such as the US and India are unknown as of now.
