by Jamie Inocian  February 14, 2017

Nokia, via HMD Global, has made its comeback with its announcement of the mid-ranged Nokia 6 and, unfortunately, it’s only been made available to the Chinese market as of now. While we’ve been able to try out the device already,  it left us yearning for the global release of the device. It seems like the we won’t be waiting for very much longer as it has just been confirmed that we’ll be seeing the global release of the Nokia 6 at the end of the month during Mobile World Congress, along with three other smartphones the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and the resurrection of the nearly indestructible 3310. Right? Solid diba? 

Here’s a refresher for the specs of the Nokia 6.

Nokia 6 Specifications

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor
  • Adreno 505 GPU
  • 5.5-inch full HD display, 2.5D glass, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage expandable storage up to 128GB via microSD
  • 16-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, Laser AF, Dual-tone LED flash

As mentioned we’re going to be seeing the Nokia 5,  which is rumored to sport the same SoC as the Nokia 6 — a Snapdragon 430 — but will be paired with a modest 2GB of RAM, a slightly smaller 5.2-inch display at just HD resolution, and a 12-megapixel rear shooter. According to our source,  the Nokia 5 will be priced at €199 or Php 10,542. There’s no word as to what the Nokia 3 will have under the hood but it will be priced at €149 or Php 8423.

The news that admittedly caught our attention, however,  was the fact that HMD has plans to resurrect the good ‘ol Nokia 3310 from days of yore. It has been priced at €59 or Php 3123. If you’re a Tito or Tita of Manila, we bet you’re thinking about purchasing it; we sure are. Lakas maka-tama ng nostalgia!

Stay tuned to our coverage of this year’ s Mobile World Congress towards the end of the month.

    Nokia 3315 and 3310 are my all time favorite nokia phones. I still have my father’s 3310. Sadly, walang mabiling matinong battery kaya naka-tago lang. If N3310 will ressurect, I’m planning to buy myself 1, for old times sake. And 1 spare battery (for my Dad’s).

    I call Nokia 3310 as “rush-text phone”. Mabilis ang response kasi ng 3310 at mabilis mag compose ng text at send. Trivia lang, when N3310 was released in 2000, it costs Php 9,900. is really pushing Nokia stories hard (esp. on sponsored FB posts), it’s getting uncomfortable. Geez, it’s just your typical run-of-the-mill Chinese Android with mediocre specs and a Nokia logo on the back. ?
