Nokia 3310 and more, Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 4 feature smartphones, will be coming very soon in the Philippines but for now we’ll have to enjoy these photos.
We sat down with HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela for an early lunch and at the same time he gave us some insights on the comeback of Nokia in the market. Nummela brought along 4 color variants of the classic Nokia 3310, Nokia models 3, 5, and 6, and 4 feature phones which are part of global release sometime in Q2 2017.
We went nostalgic the moment we held the Nokia 3310 in our hands, and it’s very light, and it fits in the palm of our hands.
Nummela mentioned the growing segment of smartphone and they are making sure, together with Google, that their smartphones are built on a secured Android device. They’ve also partnered with Qualcomm and Foxconn in terms of processor and in the manufacturing department, respectively.
What’s new with the Nokia 3310?
“It is 10x more talk-time,” said Nummela as he holds the red and yellow Nokia 3310 in his hands. On top of that, the classic ‘Snake’ game and the ringtone options are installed on the 3310, making it more fun to relive the good old days when Nokia was the only cellphone brand that we knew back then.
By the way, if you’re seeing the new Nokia models in other sellers, you must be aware that these phones, the China versions, does not carry the pure Android versions yet. Until the global release, it’s wiser for you to buy your next Nokia phones from official distributors starting Q2 2017.
Nokia, the brand return
The anticipation for these new Nokia phones is high and Nummela, and his group, are expecting for fans of Nokia to check out the new smartphones. “Our aim is, in the coming years, is for us to become (again) the top player,” said Nummela. Nokia’s record when it comes to being popular is attributed to the markets in the Philippines, China, Vietnam, and India. “We couldn’t find a place in the world that isn’t eager to try the Nokia. We have more than 120 countries (channels of distribution) and more than 500 partners, our aim is to be the top player in the coming years.”
Let’s see in the coming months what these new Nokia phones can bring in to the millennial-driven audience. Will they embrace Nokia as the Generation X and Y did in the 90s? Will this ‘comeback’ spark another light that will welcome a new era of Nokia in the millennium years?
