The Nokia 6 is finally going to hit other markets soon, next to the cheaper Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 smartphones, as well as a tribute to the classic 3310 that launched back in 2000 and is well known for its durability.

Nokia 6 arrived back in January, but was only available in China so far. However, this $245 USD handset is expected to hit the global market this month, but HMD Global seems to have more in store for this year's Mobile World Congress. The Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 smartphones would also debut at the end of this month, next to a big surprise for Nokia enthusiasts.

According to VentureBeat's Evan Blass, these are the highlights of the two new Nokia smartphones mentioned above:

  • Nokia 5: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 5.2-inch 720p display, 2 GB RAM, 12 MP main camera, €199 EUR (~$210 USD)
  • Nokia 3: low-end model, no specs revealed at this time, rumored to retail for  €149 EUR (~$157 USD)

The Nokia 6 for markets outside China is expected to have the same specs and features as the existing version - Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 5.5-inch full HD display, 4 GB RAM, 16 MP main camera. However, its price would be higher - €249 EUR or around $265 USD.

At last, VentureBeat says "a modern version of a classic workhorse of a feature phone, the Nokia 3310" is also expected to hit the market for €59 EUR - around $63 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
