02 March, 2018, 02:13 | Author: Cecelia Webb

The makers of Nokia-branded phones introduced four new smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Sunday, one of which has gained significant interest among lovers of the colour yellow and The Matrix.

"This time a year ago, we started our journey with huge expectations from fans and a massive responsibility to deliver on the legacy of one of the most innovative brands in our space".

According to HMD, the company sold an impressive 70 million Nokia-branded phones previous year.

Fans of the slider design will be happy to know that you can answer a call by flicking open the device and end a call by sliding it shut.

According to T3, the new Nokia 8810 features VoLTE calling and an easy to use interface.

And, of course, the phone lets users play the iconic Snake game.

The company said that the stainless steel frame of the new Nokia 8 Sirocco is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminum used in the predecessor, and it's also more size in the height, width, and thickness than the original.

Nokia Official Website'Nokia 1' will be released with Google's new Android GO OS.

According to the company, the performance powerhouse has been designed with great care and is arguably their most handsome smartphone to date. First impressions are that this is an excellent display, and Nokia has added subtle curves to the edges of the Gorilla Glass panel to round off the look.

As a reminder, the Nokia 7 Plus features a 6-inch IPS Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The device offers Pro Camera mode, which enables you to take control of the images and pictures.

HMD Global is yet to release United Kingdom pricing information, but says it will have a global average retail price of €79 (£70).

The Nokia 7 Plus is backed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, optimised and integrated for maximum performance and battery life.

It comes with the Smart feature OS, so don't expect it to run your android apps on it.

HMD also announced two new mid-range devices for its line-up; the Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 Plus.

The phone is expected to retail for €79, or about $100, excluding taxes and subsidies, and will be available from May.
