HMD Global revealed the Nokia smartphones and the revamped Nokia 3310 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) this year.

HMD Global has now sent out media invites for an event on May 8 where the company could possibly announce the launch date for the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3, and the Nokia 3310 redux in India.

The invitation by HMD Global reads, “A conversation with Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global,” on the said date without giving any further details about what the discussion would entail. While we can expect the company to announce the launch date for the anticipated smartphones, in all likelihood, the prices will be kept under wraps till the final day of actual launch.

Although Nokia is now managed by HMD Global, it is considered a legacy brand in India where a lot of its handsets enjoyed immeasurable popularity. Akin to other developing markets, the anticipation is more surrounding the new Nokia 3310 which is considered as the sturdiest of feature phones ever made. For the comeback Nokia 3310, there has been an addition of new pop colors and a slight redesign. While there is no official word on the pricing of the new phone, if previous reports are anything go by, it could be priced somewhere around Rs 3,899. In April, an online retailer in India listed the Nokia 3310 (2017) model online for pre-orders.
