Nokia Releases Details of Its New Smartphones

Although Nokia was pretty famous for making phones with superior build quality, the company refused to move to ever growing Android market and suffered the consequences of being no longer relevant to the consumers’ needs. Fast forward 5 years later, Nokia has entered the smartphone market with 3 different mid-range smartphones.

The 3 new devices are called Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. Understandably, the specifications and prices rise with the corresponding models. The Nokia 3 is the most basic device with a 5 inch display, Quad-code processor and a 2GB RAM with a 16GB of storage. You can expand the device with a microSD card. While the design isn’t groundbreaking, the smartphone will come only around $150.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a device for day-to-day use without breaking the bank, then you might want to purchase Nokia 5 which replaces Nokia 3’s Polycarbonate body. Apart from decent design, Nokia 5 will feature a 5.2-inch display, 2 GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. With a price tag of just $200, it might meet your needs perfectly given that it duns without any bloatware. Despite that, the relatively low amount of RAM might make the smartphone feel sluggish at times. But, we have to wait and see how the smartphone fares in the market.

If you are worried about the limited RAM of Nokia 5, then Nokia 6 might meet your needs as the last of the three models comes with a Snapdragon 430 processor, 5 inch display and an increased RAM capacity of 3GB. If you want to go for little bit more power, there is a limited edition available with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.

With the upcoming smartphones aren’t groundbreaking in any sense, they should give Nokia enough exposure to catch the smartphone market. If the company follows its reputation of producing great build quality, then they should be fine. However, we will have to wait to see sales figure after release as the company will face a lot of competition in the lower end smartphone market. However, future looks little bit better for once great company.
