One of them is the Nokia 5, a lighter / more affordable handset w/ 5.2 inch HD screen, Snapdragon 430 chip, 2 GB RAM, 12 MP main camera. It could also be the rumored Nokia Heart last month. It is expected to retail at 199 Euros which is around PHP 10.5K out of direct conversion.
Next might be the Nokia 3, an entry level Android handset that will initially go on retail for 149 Euros (around PHP 7.8K) on direct conversion rates.
The most interesting rumor there is the return of Nokia 3310, the most popular workhorse feature phone during its time. Its reincarnation is expected to bring a modern touch to its top notch efficiency, LONG battery life, and super tough build quality. It could retail at just 59 Euros.
For now that's it, let's all stay tuned for HMD's official announcement late this February. Let's also hope that those phones will be available in other regions aside from Europe and maybe China.
