HMD Global, the licensee of the Nokia smartphone brand, has unveiled a new generation of Nokia smartphones, including a reimagined Nokia 3310.
The portfolio features three new smartphones – the premium Nokia 6, mid-market Nokia 5, and the budget-friendly Nokia 3. The new range of Nokia smartphones all run Android Nougat and will all feature Google Assistant, the company says.
The famous game Snake will be snaking its way back into existence with a new version available to play on Messenger, part of Facebook’s Instant Games cross platform experience. The new version of the free Snake game is designed for the social media era with group play with friends available.
The new Nokia range of Android smartphones unveiled ahead of Mobile World Congress includes:
