Nokia, now headed by HMD is all prepping up to set a benchmark at the MWC 2017 event, to take place in Barcelona later this month. If the rumors are to be believed, the smartphone pioneer might launch a wide range of smartphones, however, there isn't any official statement by either HMD nor Nokia so far.
Further, other rumors also instigate a feeling of anticapation among fans regarding the Nokia 5 smartphone. Well, neither Nokia nor HMD has confirmed the launch date as of yet. Although, it should be taken with a pinch of salt, the Nokia 5 might come in a much affordable price tag as compared to the Nokia 6 Android smartphone launched earlier this month.
Alongside Nokia 5, HMD might also unveil a smartphone with codename Nokia "Heart". We had earlier reported about the same, when it was spotted at the Geekbench a few days ago. Going by the hearsy, Nokia Heart will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, along with a 5.2 inch HD display, 16GB storage space and 2GB of RAM. In terms of the optics, the upcoming rumored Nokia Heart will sport a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing selfie shooter.
