HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has once again expanded its local portfolio through the entrance of the Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6(2018), and the Nokia 1.

Globally unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, the Nokia 7 Plus comes in an eye-catching form factor which carries two of its main feat — a 16-megapixel front-facing camera and a 12-megapixel + 13-megapixel rear shooter, all collaborated with optical system company Zeiss.

The Nokia 7 Plus also has the Nokia-pioneered “Bothie” feature which allows users to use the front and back camera simultaneously. The “Bothie” feature was first introduced in Nokia 8 last year.10

The Nokia 7 boasts a 6.0-inch Full HD+ display in 18:9 screen ratio with Corning Gorilla Glass on top. On the inside, this flagship device caries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD support. The Nokia 7 Plus comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and runs on a fast-charging 3,800mAh battery.

Going into the mid-range department, Nokia has also brought in the Philippines the 2nd generation of Nokia 6.

The Nokia 6 (2018), as the name implies, is an improved version of the original Nokia 6 unveiled last year. It comes with a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display which conceals a Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor, plus the standard duo of 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage or 4GB + 64GB onboard storage. It comes equipped with a 3,000mAh stamina, and an Android 8.0 Oreo OS.

The Nokia 6 (2018) also appeals to camera-centric users as it comes with a 16-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

For budget-conscious users, the Nokia 1 is a considerable option. Coming off with a lite version of the Android 8.0 Oreo OS called the Android Oreo Go under its hood, the Nokia 1 sports a 4.5-inch display, and has other specs of a MT6737M quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB expandable storage. The Nokia 1 runs on a 2,150mAh battery.

In terms of imaging, this economical Android device comes with a 5-megapixel main camera plus a 2-megapixel selfie camera.

Sticking to their move of bringing back old and well-loved Nokia models, HMD Global also announced the comeback of the “banana phone” — the Nokia 8110 4G.

Soon to be available in the Philippines, the revamped Nokia 8110 4G has a 2.4-inch QVGA TFT display in 320 x 240 resolution. It comes with Snapdragon 205 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB expandable storage, 1,500’Ah battery, and KaiOS. For connectivity, this basic phone has LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n options among others.
