Nokia – they have a name that’s dear to our hearts. Earlier this year, they’ve made the announcement that they’re coming back – and now, they’re making a great comeback with HMD Global. This is the new Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3.
As a bonus before we begin, here’s Nokia’s iconic ringtone for you to download for free. Nokia shared it with us in a high-quality mp3 format, so I thought hey – why not share with all of you all too?
Nokia promises zero bloatware and unnecessary skins or apps included in their version of Android, and promises monthly updates too. These smartphones will be available starting June 2016.
Continuing Nokia’s iconic build quality, the brand new Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are milled out of a single block of aluminium 6000 series alloy. That’s certainly something to behold.
This is Nokia’s latest and highest end smartphone that’s available on the market soon. Comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display as usual with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, 1.4GHz octa-core processor, Adreno 505 GPU, 3GB RAM, and 32GB of storage. As for the cameras, the Nokia 6 comes with a 16MP f/2.0 rear-facing camera and another 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
It’s available in a total of 4 colors – Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue, and Copper. Arriving by the end of June, the Nokia 6 retails at RM999, and there’s another special edition coming soon too – called the Arte Black.
The Arte Black edition, however, comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. That has been mentioned here, but still waiting for further confirmation on when it’s coming to Malaysia. Limited edition too!
Let’s go through the specs real quick. 5.2-inch IPS display in 720p resolution, Snapdragon 430 chipset, 1.4GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13MP f/2.0 rear-facing camera, and an 8MP selfie camera.
Also arriving by the end of June, the Nokia 5 comes in the 3 colors – Matte Black, Silver, and Tempered Blue. It’s priced at RM799, inclusive of GST too.
Coming down to Nokia’s most affordable Android-based smartphone that’s coming to the market, the Nokia 3 is machined out of a single piece of aluminium. Featuring a 5-inch IPS 720p display, Mediatek MT6737 chipset with 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, the Nokia 3 is looking to be quite a compelling choice for a budget smartphone. It even comes with an 8MP f/2.0 rear-facing camera and another 8MP f/2.0 front-facing camera.
It comes with a total of 4 different colors – Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue, and Copper, and priced at RM599 only. Available this mid-June of 2017.
Ah, the ever iconic Nokia 3310. Taking a modern twist into the blocky more-than-a-decade-old design, the new Nokia 3310 features more colors, curvy edges, and an impossible battery life of 22-hour talk-time.
This one, is something special. I have one in the labs now, actually. We’ll be having an unboxing video coming up in a day or two – so be on the lookout for that!
Also, we have a mini review on what the new Nokia 3310 is all about too! Check it out down below.
