Recently, HMD Global announced that the Nokia 3310 3G, Nokia 1, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.1, are now available in Canada. Best Buy, Canada Computers, Staples and Walmart are all carrying these devices online, and some are also available in-stores at Best Buy and Staples.
“Since launching in December 2016, HMD Global has brought Nokia phones to more than 80 markets around the globe. As a young start-up building on the heritage of one of the industry’s most respected brands, scaling to this global demand has been one of our greatest challenges,” said Maurizio Angelone, Vice President Americas, HMD Global.
Let’s take a look at each device.
Nokia 3310 3G
The cell phone that most of us grew up with is back with a modern look and feel. As a 3G enabled phone with renewed colours and a new user interface, you can now select a theme to suit your needs. The user interface provides a more customizable experience which allows you to change the icon colours and position so that you can get the right look that you’re after. The Nokia 3310 3G has been ergonomically redesigned that makes it feel better in your hand. It has improved the space between buttons making dialling, texting and tweeting more pleasant. You can also talk up to 6.5 hours with this phone and keep it on standby of up to almost a month – 27 days – which is quite impressive. If you are a big fan of Snake, then you will be happy to know that it’s on this device.
If you are digging that retro look with modern functionality, then you can get the Nokia 3310 3G for $89.
If the classic look is not your fancy, then the Nokia 1 might be one to look at. This device provides “a complete smartphone experience accessible to everyone,” according to a press release. It provides “smartphone essentials, refreshingly familiar design and the reassuring quality of a Nokia phone to fans around the world.” The Nokia 1 has a quad-core processor, front and rear cameras and 4G connectivity, which gives you the package of a smartphone. It has a removable 2150 mAh battery and power-efficient IPS display and operates on the latest Android Oreo Go edition. This version of Android is for devices with 1GB RAM or less.
You can get this device, packing all of this punch in a smartphone for $129.
Moving up the line is another “a stunning smartphone with unprecedented value.” Made with an aluminum frame, a laminated 5” display with sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass and seamlessly integrated 8MP wide aperture cameras both front and back, the Nokia 3 indeed packs a premium quality smartphone experience.
The price for the Nokia 3 is $209.
The Nokia 5 has the looks of a high-end smartphone. With a sleek and compact look, the Nokia 5 fits comfortably in your hand. “It has been precision engineered out of a single block of 6000 series aluminum to create a perfect pillowed body that flows seamlessly into the laminated 5.2” IPS HD display with sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass.” The device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 30 mobile platform and the Qualcomm Adreno 505 graphics processor.
This device is available for $279.
The last Nokia device released in Canada from this announcement is the Nokia 6.1. Building on the success of its predecessor, this device has even more powerful performance and great new features. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, the Nokia 6.1 is “over 60 per cent faster than its award-winning predecessor.” This version offers enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo. “The Nokia 6.1 has been selected by Google to join the Android One family. The Nokia 6.1 will stay fresh over time with the latest Google innovations and regular security updates.”
The Nokia 6.1 is made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminum, with a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. This device is for $399.
“Thanks to the overwhelming response from our fans in Canada, we are now proud to announce that the Nokia 3310 3G, Nokia 1, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.1 with Best Buy, Canada Computers, Staples and Walmart,” said Angelone.
