Nokia is officially back! The legendary brand has successfully entered the European market. Alongside the entrance, the brand has officially unveiled the Nokia 5 and 3 smartphone at MWC 2017, while previously launched Nokia 6 will also go on sale outside China.
The first from the list, the Nokia 5 is a mid-range sort of smartphone from the company. The handset shines on its metal unibody and sports a 5.2-inch HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Despite a low-res screen, Nokia has stated that the display will offer a better visibility, thanks to 500 nits of brightness.
Like Nokia 6, the Nokia 5 is also powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. Memory wise, the phone is backed up by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. Camera option includes a 13MP sensor at the back with f/2.0 aperture rate and dual-LED flash, while selfies are taken care by an 8MP front camera with similar aperture rate.
The whole phone will boot bloat-free Android 7.1 Nougat with Nokia’s own skin on top. The company has also promised to keep the software up to date, thus offering more reliability. The phone drags the power from a 3000mAh battery inside and can be purchased for €190 in three color options, including Matte Black, Blue, Silver, and Copper.
A slightly lower spec’d Nokia 3 carries a price tag of €140. Despite the low pricing, the handset is framed with aluminum, while housing a soft polycarbonate back.
The Nokia 3 features a small 5-inch 720p display, which as claimed will offer 450nits of brightness. The phone, however, comes with a MediaTek’s quad-core chipset, with a similar amount of memory, i.e. 2GB RAM and 16GB internal. The phone also runs on Android 7.1 Nougat and offers bloat-free experience with added security features.
Imaging sensor includes a downgraded 8MP primary camera at the back with f/2.0 aperture rate and LED flash, while, up front, the smartphone comes with a similar 8MP sensor for selfies and video chats. The phone packs a smaller 2650mAh battery inside.
