Our favorite mobile brand is back with 4 new devices including legendery Nokia 3310. The new Nokia mobile devices launch are managed by HMD Global (The company formed by ex- Nokia executives). HMD Global has brought license for the Nokia branding. Now, coming whether HMD Global has managed to do justice to Legendery Nokia Brand.
Our Initial verdict is mostly optimistic. Let’s look at the 4 new Nokia device which were launched recently. Nokia 3: the low budget android phone , Nokia 5: the sub mid- budget android phone , Nokia 6: the mid- budget android phone and legendery Nokia 3310 with new design.
What diffrentiates these Nokia phones from rest of the phones. Solid and sturdy body of the phone (confidence of Nokia) and pure android experience. Nokia will be providing android updtaes for full 2 yrs, this is great as most of the companies fail to do so.
HMD already unveiled its Nokia 6 smartphone earlier for the Chinese market, but it’s now going global with a few changes. The Nokia 6 is the biggest of all three of these Nokia-branded handsets, featuring a 5.5-inch display (1920 x 1080), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and all powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor. The forward-facing camera (8-megapixel) is getting upgraded with a wide-angle lens and auto-focus, and the regular camera remains the same as the Chinese variant: 16-megapixel with dual tone flash. This probably isn’t going to take amazing photos like you’d expect from a premium smartphone, but it seems capable enough.If you liked this article like yantragyan on facebook. If you’re planning to take a lot of photos, you’ll also be able to expand storage thanks to a microSD slot. Nokia is also planning to launch it’s Premium phone later this year.
The Nokia 6 is manufactured from a block of aluminum with diamond cut edges. In the hand it gives it a very industrial metallic feel, with sharp edges that meet the matte aluminum body. Viewing angles of the display are good, and the 5.5-inch size feels just about right. HMD is also offering up an Arte Black limited edition version of the Nokia 6. It’s a glossy version with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The main difference is gloss and price, as the matte black, silver, blue, or copper versions of the Nokia 6 will retail at Rs 16,500 ($242) approx , and the glossy black will debut at Rs 21,000 ($315) approx . Both variants will be available worldwide including starting in Q2, or by June.
The second Nokia-branded Android phone is Nokia 5. It’s slightly smaller than the Nokia 6 thanks to its 5.2-inch display, and it’s all powered by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor. The main difference between the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 is design. If you liked this article like yantragyan on facebook. While the Nokia 5 is also aluminum, it has curved edges that make the display feel like it’s bleeding into its metal casing. As a result, it feels a lot nicer to hold. It reminds me a lot of holding an iPhone, and there are no sharp edges or ugly bumps. “The Nokia 5 is the most impressive for the price”
Just like the Nokia 6, the Nokia 5 is also powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Nokia is once again relying on its hardware as the main selling point, with a 13-megapixel camera at the rear and a wide-angle 8-megapixel forward-facing camera. Both will be sufficient for average use, but this is another mid-range Android phone so if you’re not going to get the best camera phone on the market here. HMD will ship the Nokia 5 in Q2 across the world, priced at Rs 13,500 ($199) approx and available in blue, silver, matte black, and copper.
The third and final new Nokia Android phone is the Nokia 3, and it’s the most basic of the trio. HMD has stepped down to a 5-inch display for the Nokia 3, paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an MTK 6737 quad-core processor. Unlike the 5 and the 6, the Nokia 3 features a polycarbonate back, with an aluminum frame. It feels more like one of the lower end Lumia devices we’re used to seeing, with a familiar design.
The Nokia 3 also features an 8-megapixel camera at the front and rear, and a pure version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It feels nice enough as a basic budget smartphone, and still manages to feel like the type of low-end Nokia phone you’d expect to see in 2017. HMD will also start shipping the Nokia 3 in Q2, priced at Rs 9,500 approx ($147) and available in blue, silver, matte black, and copper.
The last one is the great Nokia 3310. 3310 is making a nostalgic return in the form of a more modern variant, thanks to Nokia-branded phone maker HMD. Like its predecessor, it will still be called the Nokia 3310, but this time it’s running Nokia’s Series 30+ software, with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, and even a microSD slot.
Those specs are still fairly basic by our modern phone standards, but that’s the beauty of such a basic featurephone. Unlike the brick-like sturdiness of the old 3310, the modern variant is a little smaller, thinner, and lighter all round. It’s also a lot more colorful this time around, with glossy yellow and red colors, and matte grey and dark blue models. It’s instantly recognizable as a Nokia,Nokia has even included a modern Snake game on the handset just to play on the nostalgia.
Opera Mini is bundled for basic web surfing, but the real selling point is battery life. Just like most featurephones, standby time on the Nokia 3310 is 31 days, alongside a talk time of 22 hours. That’s a massive amount of battery life.
HMD is planning to make the new Nokia 3310 available in Q2 (June) this year for 49 euros ($52) or Rs 3500.
So this was all about Nokia comeback. If you liked this article like yantragyan on facebook.
