Phones of Mobile World Congress 2017
Some of the biggest phones of 2017 were launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The nostalgic favourite was the Nokia 3310, a replica of the 2000 model produced by the new licensee of the Nokia feature phone brand, HMD Global, a Finnish company made up of many former Nokia staff wanting to see the brand great again. Here are five of the top phones released at the event.
The Nokia 6 is part of the emerging story of HMD Global, a young company that includes enthusiastic ex-Nokia staff who want to restore the brand to its former glory days. Founded nine months ago, HMD Global and FIH Mobile (a subsidiary of phone-maker Foxconn) acquired the rights held by Microsoft Mobile’s feature phone business to sell Nokia-branded phones and tablets until 2024. One of its four new phones is a retro version of the Nokia 3310, but it only works in 2G markets, not Australia. The others are no-nonsense Android phones. Nokia 6 has a metal frame, 5.5-inch full HD display, Dolby Atmos sound, a 16MP camera and Google’s latest Android operating system, Nougat.
