For those of you who had the privilege of owning a mobile phone when you were growing up, you must have had a Nokia phone at least once in your life. And for many of us, it was our first phone (most likely a hand-me-down from our parents or elder siblings).
Although Nokia phones haven’t been all that popular in recent years, especially with the likes of Apple and Samsung, many people around the world were still surprised when Microsoft announced last year
that they would no longer produce Nokia phones.
What was once a mega phone company was finally beaten down by many other more popular smartphones.
But recently, the Finnish brand saw a light at the end of the tunnel.
In December 2016, Nokia found its way to a brand new home with HMD Global. Not only that, the company unveiled a whole new range of Nokia smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year.
And the new series has landed on Malaysian shores!
On Tuesday, HMD Global announced the release of its first Nokia smartphones range in Malaysia – Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3
and the rebirth of the iconic Nokia 3310
This series of smartphones boasts of “superior craftsmanship, distinctive design and powerful entertainment features” with a pure Android experience. That’s quite the transformation considering Nokia’s Window Phone predecessors.
With this release, Nokia smartphones have stepped into a new era as the company reintroduces a brand of mobile phones that was very well loved and trusted by Malaysians from all walks of life more than a decade ago.
This device features a precision machined aluminium frame crafted out of a single piece of aluminium, offering durable structure and protection.
