The mere mention of Nokia making a comeback next year got many people excited. Would the Finnish company make a big splash at Mobile World Congress 2017 with a flagship smartphone? Don't get your hopes too high though. 

Nokia is said to be releasing two variants of its new smartphone at the annual tech show in February 2017. The more expensive model is rumored to come with 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch Full-HD display, a 16-megapixel camera and a price tag of US$200 (~S$286). The other variant is priced at US$150 (~S$214), and sports 2GB RAM with a 5-inch Full-HD display and a 13-megapixel camera. 

Both phones are stated to ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, Android 7.0 Nougat, 16GB internal storage space and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Judging from these rumors, it seems that Nokia is focusing on grabbing market share with an aggressive pricing strategy.
