OK before I start, this is where I’m supposed to talk about how nostalgic the Nokia brand is and how much we loved the Nokia phones that we grew up with but I guess you’ve already heard a lot about that already. So let me just get to the point of this article.
HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones made an announcement yesterday at their launch event here in KL that they will be releasing the trio of Android phones, the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 here in Malaysia starting June 2017.
The best one among the 3, the Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5″ screen and is crafted from a single block of 6000 series aluminium. I held it and I really felt the ‘solidness’ of the device. It is a true unibody phone whereby there are no moving parts.
The Nokia 6 will be released in 4 colours: Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper. It will retail at RM999 and will be available in all mobile retail outlets end June 2017.
The middle brother, the Nokia 5 comes with a 5.2″ screen and is also cut out from a block of 6000 series aluminium. It has a 13MP camera on the back and 8MP on the front.
The Nokia 5 will be available in Matte Black, Silver and Tempered Blue for RM799 starting end of June 2017.
The smallest sibling, Nokia 3 comes with a 5″ display with looks exactly like the Nokia 5. It is built using aluminium and polycarbonate.
The Nokia 3 comes with 8MP camera on the front and back and will be available in Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper. From mid June 2017 onwards, it will be selling at RM599.
I know you are actually eyeing on this one just because you want to buy for the fun of it. Well, the Nokia 3310 will be availble from 1st week of June 2017 and will cost Rm239. Colours available: Warm Red and Yellow, both with glossy finish and Dark Blue and Grey, both in matte finish.
So which one will you be getting?
