The anticipated Nokia smartphones are finally coming to Malaysia. HMD Global, the company behind the revival has sent out invites for a Malaysian launch that’s happening in less than two weeks from now.

They will be introducing 3 smartphones in Malaysia – Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, that were announced earlier this year.

Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 is currently their top of the line offering with a 5.5″ Full HD display and a pair of speakers enhanced with Dolby Atmos. It gets a 2.5D glass on top while the body is crafted from a single block of 6,000 series aluminium.

It runs on a Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. There’s also a special Nokia 6 R edition that comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage along with a glossy black colour. In terms of optics, it gets a 16MP main camera and an 8MP selfie shooter with Auto Focus. It is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and it runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.

Nokia 5

Going down a notch is the Nokia 5 which gets a 5.2″ HD 720p display. It also runs on a Snapdragon 430 processor but with 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage. Like the Nokia 6, it is also made of 6,000 series aluminium for a more upmarket feel.

The Nokia 5 gets a 13MP main camera and a front-facing 8MP selfie shooter. The battery capacity remains unchanged with a 3,000mAh unit and it also runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Nokia 3

For the entry level segment, the Nokia 3 comes with a modest 5″ HD 720p display and under the hood it runs on a MediaTek 6737 processor. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage while the cameras are bumped down to an 8MP main camera and an 8MP front shooter. The battery is a notch down too with a 2,650mAh capacity.

According to earlier speculation, the Nokia 6 could be priced at RM899 while the higher-spec Nokia 6R is priced at RM1,299. There’s no mention of the Nokia 3310 in the official invite but there’s a chance that this throwback device could be making an appearance.

The launch is taking place on Tuesday, 30th May 2017 and we’ll be there at the event. Stay tuned to us for official Malaysian pricing and availability details.

Very hard to get back now, the market already conquered by Chinese phone with super specs. The die hard Nokia fans last decade already moved to Apple or Samsung.

Hate Digi and other stinking telcos

Sorry guys. This may not be the right place! I am so irritated with Digi prepaid. I topped up for RM20. It deducted RM9, for weekly data of 2GB. When I tried surfing, I got shit service! What the yellow ducklah Digi!


    Thanks for pointing out those shitty Telco. I like to let u guys know too there are not any better with the Umobile prepaid, most of the time can’t load the clash royal and stop at 50%, even u get in, u are playing with slow motion and get killed before your army appears. Yes maybe celcom postpaid not the cheapest but way better.


I hope Nokia does not screw up the build quality. The last time I bought a Nokia product turned out to be horrible experience (Nokia X)


i just need a 3310


Price Nokia 6 below 1.2K & Nokia 6R below 1.4K I am getting one next month.

to hate digi

mate im using the 150 digi package so far no comment net speed is damn great compared to other useless telco with hidden charges


    He use prepaid maybe that’s​ why he got terrible connection

    Your’s in other hand postpaid, and postpaid user tend be well tended to


It failed badly to deliver unified Windows experience.

Promised , but my Lumia 520 can’t run proper Windows mobile.

Fewer tiles alike in Win 10. Metro interface is history now.

They lied.


Final nail on the coffin.
Nokia just plain sucks!
What's the point of launching new phones?
Chinese sets are way better then them.
They still banking on their name after Microsoft screwed up with Lumia?
The Finnish company is finally "Finnished"!


    say no to overpriced lower end spec Nokia phone

Alovely day

I want a Nokia for pure Google and Android experience (ie. no bloatware) with better built quality and warranty service than both Nexus and Pixel.
