Add HMD to the list of companies announcing something new as they have unwrapped some new Nokia smartphones and a feature phone.

With MWC underway, a gaggle of companies have unveiled some new products such as Lenovo’s newest Chromebooks and Windows laptops, a new line of ANC headphones from Lenovo, Huawei’s Mate X folding phone, LG’s G8 and V50 ThinQ, and more. Add HMD to the list of companies announcing something new as they have unwrapped some new Nokia smartphones and a feature phone.

Nokia 210

Let’s start with the feature phone line up, the Nokia 210 is your basic feature phone and holds true to that classic Nokia 3310 look and feel. The phone comes with a 2.4″ QVGA display and a VGA camera on the rear with an LED flash, sorry no front-facing camera for you selfie-taking folks out there.

The Nokia 210 will be running S30 software that’ll have Opera Mini as the browser, with Facebook and the Classic Snake game preinstalled. There is a mobile app store, but applications are going to be less robust than what you’ll find on Android or iOS. The device will get up to 20 days of standby time and offers a durable polycarbonate shell. Availability is slated for March with a global average retail price of US$35.

Nokia 4.2

Nokia is introducing a new naming scheme with Nokia 4.2. With glass on the front and back, it is held together with a plastic frame. The display is a 5.71″ 720p TFT panel with a waterdrop type notch to maximize screen real estate.

Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octa-core SoC, Adreno 505 GPU, 16GB or 32GB of (expandable) internal storage, and either 2GB or 3GB RAM. There is a dual camera setup on the rear of the phone. The main shooter is 13MP with the other being a 2MP depth sensor. The front-facing camera is 8MP with an AI-driven Face Unlock built-in. Also included with the Nokia 4.2 is a fingerprint scanner and a dedicated Google Assistant button which Google has announced will coming to more mobile devices. The Nokia 4.2 is running Android One and will be available in two colors in April. Retail price will be US$169 for the 16GB model and US$199 for the 32GB model.

Expanding from the Nokia 3.1, the Nokia 3.2 comes with a 6.26″ TFT 720p display also with a waterdrop notch like the Nokia 4.2. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 429 SoC and offers 2GB or 3GB RAM. Internal storage also comes in at 16GB or 32GB, both expandable. A fingerprint scanner is also on the back of the device along with the Google Assistant button on the side.

As for cameras, the rear is a single 13MP sensor with autofocus and an LED flash. The front-facing sensor is 5MP and will also support Face Unlock. As for the battery, it comes in at 4,000mAh, so you should be able to get some pretty good usage out of it. Android One is also the preinstalled OS and the device will be available in April, with a retail price of US$139 for the 16GB model and US$169 for the 32GB model.

Nokia 1 Plus

Just like its younger brother that came out last year, the Nokia 1 Plus is a budget phone that is also running Android Go. The screen is a modest 5.45″ with an IPS LCD 480p display.

The phone is running off of the same MediaTek SoC (MT6739) as the Nokia 1 did last year. There will be a 2,500mAh battery, so you should be able to get some decent usage out of it, considering the display resolution. The storage only comes in 8GB paired with 1GB of RAM. The rear camera is 8MP while the front-facing camera is 5MP.

The device will be available mid-March with a price of US$99. I’m always excited for new Nokia smartphones, especially since they now run Android.
