While HMD Global has not announced a particular date for India launch, there are speculation that the company might launch the Nokia 6 in India on April 5, 2017.

According to Chinese site Vtech, the new Nokia 3310 will feature a colour screen, rather than the monochrome 84 x 84 display of old.

Obviously, this is a featured phone made as a sort of hommage to the iconic Nokia 3310 so you shouldn't be expecting fantastic specs. You can also add a microSD card of up to 32GB. This handset is considerably smaller, lighter, and it offers insane battery life, a lot better than the original Nokia 3310, more info on that a bit later.

The last is the Nokia 5 that boasts of a 5.2-inch 720p display and is powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor. Nokia 3 is also made of the aluminum body which we see in other Nokia phones.

In 2013, Nokia had sold its mobile device unit to Microsoft for $7.2 billion, a deal that was completed in April 2014.

Elsewhere, the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will cost €189 and €139 respectively.

However, it has limited internet capabilities, relying on 2.5G connectivity, with users browsing at speeds slower than if they were using 3G. The device rocks 3,000 mAh battery and comes with a fingerprint sensor. It is slimmer, has funky colours and keys with design that accentuates their and phone's roundness. The highly anticipated Nokia 3310 makes a solid comeback. The phone even has a 2 MP rear camera. The device was, until now, available only in China, but the company has introduced a global version of the phone.

As most people had surmised already, this homage version of this iconic phone is supposed to help shine on the Noki brand by plucking on nostalgia strings. Nokia will also be banking on its famous reliability, and has promised to push regular software and security updates to the phones.
