Mobile World Congress is going to be held from February 27 to March 2 in Barcelona, Spain. It will feature some of the most unusual phones this time. The most anticipated of all is the relaunch of legendary Nokia 3310.
First launched in 2000, the 17-year old phone will be revealed by HMD Global one day before the MWC, 2017 on February 26. The price tag is expected to be $63 (£50, €59 ) according to a report by Venture Beat.
Every single person who is tired of broken screens, because of dropping their smartphones, has to be excited about getting this brick phone back. Some rumors have surfaced that the phone will just have the looks of 3310 while being a smartphone running on Android. On the contrary, reports suggest that this is not true. It will just be a feature phone that will not run on Android. But all these are just rumors so; we can never be sure of its features.
While being the most anticipated one, Nokia 3310 is not the only phone that will be revealed by HMD Global at the MWC. The Nokia 6 has already been launched in China, featuring a full HD 5.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 430 processor, 4 GB RAM and a primary camera of 16 Megapixels. The Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 which are Nougat 7.0 budget phones will also be released. The Nokia 6 will retail for $260, and the lower versions such as the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 are expected to cost approximately $209 and $157.
Of all the phones revealed, the Nokia highlight of the MWC will be the Nokia 8, featuring Qualcomm’s latest processor Snapdragon 835 and an AMOLED display of 2.7 inches. The phone is rumored to have two versions with a storage of 64GB and 128GB with the provision of a microSD card slot that supports up to 256 GB. The phone is Nokia’s hope for making it back to the world of mobiles.
We’ll just wait for this hammer of a phone until the company reveals it on Sunday the 26th.
