Nokia 3 and 5 will be announced at MWC alongside a new version of the 3310, European pricing leaks for all
Get ready for Nokia smartphones to once again be sold in Europe. According to a new leak from Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks), the brand will introduce three new devices at MWC on February 26, one of which is pretty surprising, to say the least.
The Nokia 6 was launched in China last month, and this will be showcased at the MWC event too - where it will be announced for the European market. The Nokia 6 will be sold in Europe for €249.
Joining it will be the new Nokia 5, with a 5.2-inch 720p touchscreen, 2GB of RAM, and a 12 MP main camera. It will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC as the Nokia 6. The Nokia 5 will retail for €199. Moving further down to the low-end, the Nokia 3 will be priced at €149, though it's unclear what specs it will bring to the table.
These three Android models will be joined in the new Nokia portfolio by a "modern version of a classic workhorse of a feature phone", a re-imagining of the 3310 from 2000. This cult classic is updated for 2017, but still appears to be a feature phone. It's going to be sold for €59.
What isn't yet known is if or when these Nokia devices will be sold in North America. For now, the brand seems to be focused only on the Chinese and European markets.
A colour display, same low-res one as in other low-end Nokias likely. What is wrong with a monochrome one? And will there be a cheap camera also? Better to bring out a REAL classic, no camera and decent sound. Do we really want a 1.5 mp 'quality' cam...

well, business is cruel. You can't always be 100% sure to win the market using your technology. You should learn from samsung how to rule the business strategy itself, even though they suck.

Reason why NOKIA can't introduce a high end phone yet because Samsung hog and took away all the supplies of the Snapdragon 835 processors. Not just Nokia is affected but other phone makers as well. Screw Samsung. You sucks!
