Two new Nokia smartphones are said to be launching at the Mobile World Congress 2017 – the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5. Both will run on Android and have a more affordable price tag than the Nokia 6.
This was revealed by popular leakster Evan Blass aka @evleaks in an article on VentureBeat.

Nokia 5 is rumored to have the same Snapdragon 430 processor as the Nokia 6 but with a smaller 5.2-inch HD display. It will also have 2GB of RAM and a 12 Megapixel camera.
It’s said to have a €199 price tag. This equates to around ₱10,500.00 based on current foreign exchange rates.
Nokia 3 Features and Price
The article didn’t mention the specs of the Nokia 3. However, it will have a more affordable price than both the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5. Hence, we can expect lesser features too.
The retail price of the Nokia 3 is reportedly €149 only. Using current forex rates, that’s just ₱7,900!
Nokia 6 in Europe
Nokia 6 was initially launched exclusively for the Chinese Market. Hellotronics made it available on Lazada Philippines but with a Chinese-optimized Android operating system.
This time, Nokia 6 is reportedly going to be officially available in Europe – a crucial first step towards global availability.
