In a real nostalgia moment for the industry, Nokia is following BlackBerry’s lead yesterday by announcing a range of new Android devices. Made by HMD Global, the devices are for the lower-end of the market, with the Nokia 3310 serving as a further throwback.
Three Android phones are rumored to be announced later this morning at MWC. The Nokia 6 has already been announced for China and is likely expanding to other regions today. With a Snapdragon 430 processor and 4GB of RAM on the high-end, the 3 and 5 will likely have notably lower specs at an affordable price point.
However, the bigger splash — shockingly and factually — is the re-release of the Nokia 3310 from the early 2000s. Rumors point to the device running a more modern Series 30+, but with a color screen, multiple colors, and swappable face plates.
Watch HMD Global’s Nokia announcement later this morning at 7:30 AM PST (10:30 AM PST) on Facebook Live.
