Nokia will always have a special place in my heart. Like the rest of the world, my first ever mobile phone was Nokia – a fancy 3410 with a mint green casing. I’ve also owned several other models like the 6310i, 2100, 6070, and the last one was the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic , which I still have up to this very day. It’s barely breathing now but I couldn’t throw it away because it was the first ever phone I bought out of my own salary.
Anyway, enough nostalgia. I’m just happy to share that the new Nokia Smartphones – Nokia 7 plus, Nokia 1, New Nokia 6 and Nokia 8110 4G – has arrived and they will all be available in Davao by mid-May. This awesome news was confirmed by HMD Global during a press launch last April 26, 2018 at Seda Hotel, Davao City.
Have a closer look at these new gorgeous smartphones.
Nokia 7 Plus
Designed to help users create stunning content, the Nokia 7 plus has the screen, power, design and features that make it a true hero of the Nokia smartphone range. Combining innovative optical hardware and imaging algorithms, the Nokia 7 plus captures moments in photos that are true to life. With its impressive 16MP front-facing camera with ZEISS optics, the Nokia 7 plus adapts to low light conditions by increasing light sensitivity to guarantee only the best pictures preserve perfect moments. Enhanced Dual-Sight harnesses the front and back cameras simultaneously to capture the ultimate #Bothie while unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos ensure all memories are stored for easy sharing with family and friends.
To enable you to capture and enjoy more content for longer, the Nokia 7 plus is backed by the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660 Mobile Platform. Its large-capacity 3800mAh battery makes sure you won’t have to worry about battery life, even when you are broadcasting your #Bothie videos live on Facebook or YouTube.
Its gently curved back and slim edges provides a big-screen experience in a comfortable, neat package. The vivid 6-inch 18:9 full-HD+ display makes the Nokia 7 plus perfect for browsing, social media consumption, gaming and entertainment with more content in the same width as a traditional 5.5-inch display device.
The Nokia 7 plus will be available in Black/Copper and White/Copper on April 27 and will retail for PHP 21,990.
Nokia 1 – a 4G smartphone for every Juan
The Nokia 1 is a breakthrough in accessible technology, delivering smartphone essentials with the reassuring quality that can be expected of a Nokia phone and a refreshingly familiar design to fans around the world. Giving more people access to technology, the phone comes with Android Oreo™ (Go edition), a version of Android optimized for devices with 1GB RAM or less.
The Nokia 1 is designed to be smooth and responsive, with full access to the Google Play™ Store. This means you can find all your favorite apps from WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram to mobile banking while also highlighting apps that are optimized for Android Oreo™ (Go edition).
You can give your Nokia 1 a makeover, thanks to the addition of the ever-popular Xpress-on covers. Available in a range of vibrant colors, these exchangeable covers let you express your personal style by simply pressing on and off in seconds. Each cover is built with the same precision and attention to detail as the phone’s original cover. Inherently colored, the tough two-tone polycarbonate cover is ready to take on everyday knocks and bumps with its durable design.
The Nokia 1 is now available in Warm Red and Dark Blue for PHP 4,290.
Building on the success of its predecessor, the new Nokia 6 packs even more powerful performance and great new features in a more compact, durable body. Over 60% faster than its award-winning predecessor, it now offers enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, a more compact screen-to-body ratio, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo™.
The new Nokia 6 takes the original’s precision craftsmanship to the next level by combining a unibody, made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium, with an 11-hour two-tone anodising and polishing process. And by uniting a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the New Nokia 6’s compact and refined body is built to last. It runs in Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 Mobile Platform to deliver fast and smooth performance alongside great day-long battery life.
The new Nokia 6 with 4GB RAM / 64 GB ROM configuration in Blue/Gold color blend will be available starting May 14 for PHP 15,990.

With a familiar and easy to use interface, the Nokia 8110 features intuitive tactile mechanics, with slide to answer and end calls, as well as an addictive helicopter-style spin on its axis. The Nokia 8110 delivers crystal-clear VoLTE calling and is perfect for anyone who wants an iconic 4G feature phone or a companion phone.
