HMD’s Vice President Per Ekman was on a visit to Pakistan recently where he surveyed the Pakistani market and cut a cake at Advance Telecom’s headquarters in Karachi to mark the comeback of Nokia in the smartphone industry.
He announced that HMD will be releasing the promised phones within the next three months. Ekman said that Pakistan is a very important market and the release of three midrange phones along with the return of the iconic 3310 will provide “one of the most competitive value propositions for consumers.”
The new phones will run on the latest Android OS Nougat and feature Google Assistant as well. Rumors suggested that in addition to these phones HMD will be releasing two flagship phones Nokia 7 and 8 to compete with the likes of Galaxy S8.
However, these rumors soon faded when it was announced that these phones will not be featuring the latest chipsets. Nokia has already introduced a host of feature phones and the arrival of the phones means HMD is trying to target as many consumer segments as it can.
The 3310 is a feature phone with a stylish look and will support of talk time of up to 22 hours.
The Nokia 6 houses an octa-core processor, 5.5 inches HD display, 4 GB RAM, 32/64 GB internal memory options expandable by an SD card, a 16-megapixel back and 8-megapixel front camera.
The Nokia5 differs from the Nokia6 with a slightly smaller 5.2-inch display, lesser RAM and internal storage and a 13-megapixel camera instead of 16 MP.
The Nokia3 is more of a budget phone with a 5.0 inch HD display, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage expandable by an SD card and an 8MP rear and front camera.
