We already told you why you should consider a Nokia phone.

Finally, the Nokia 2.1 was also announced.

Finnish company HMD Global -which sells the iconic Nokia brand of phones - has launched the three new smartphone at a special event in Russian Federation. As per the listing, the Nokia 2.1 will be priced at Rs 6,999, while the Nokia 3.1 will start at Rs 9,498 and the Nokia 5.1 will cost Rs 12,499.

At an event in Moscow on Tuesday, HMD Global made a few announcements regarding its Nokia product lineup.

BMO and Simplii Financial warn that fraudsters may have hacked client information
The alleged attackers sent a letter to multiple Canadian media outlets on May 27, claiming that the two banks had until 11:59 p.m. The potential data breaches reported by Simplii and BMO on Monday are the latest cybersecurity incidents involving Canadians.

The Nokia 5.1, 3.1 and 2.1 mid-range to entry-level handsets are headlined by their affordability and use of the lightweight Android One and Go operating systems.

As always, HMD Global released different colour options of the Nokia 3.1. We don't have the numbers yet but people are still buying Nokia for many reasons.

This phone is much cheaper than that Motorola handset, and while the design may not stand out as much it still looks attractive from the front and back. It is powered by a Snapdragon 425 chipset and is optimised to consume 10 per cent less power than its predecessor. Given that the Nokia 3 costs Rs. 9,499 (~$140), and both the 5.1 and 2.1 match the price of their predecessors, I suspect it will be Rs. 9,499 for the 3.1 model too.

Nokia 3.1 comes a 5.2-inch featuring 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass. The phone will be available in Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron colors. HMD said last year's Nokia 3 was its most popular selling smartphone, and the new model will likely do just as well at a starting price of 139 euro, or about $160. The smartphone also comes with NFC connectivity.

The targets of the attacks stretched from the northern Gaza Strip , in the Beit Hanoun area, to the south, in the Rafah area. A growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza has pushed its residents to start protesting the untenable situation.

Like the Nokia 3.1, it also has an 18:9 display, but it's 5.5 inches diagonally and steps up the resolution to Full HD+. Some of these are premium specs you can only find in more expensive models. It also offers the octa-core MediaTek processor, albeit clocked slower than the Nokia 5.1, along with up to 3GB RAM/32GB storage.

The Nokia 3 (2018) or Nokia 3.1 is a refreshed version of last year's Nokia 3 which brings a compact form factor along with an updated design language.

Leading the pack is an update of the company's Nokia 5, dubbed the Nokia 5.1. It features an aluminum unibody design carved out of a single piece of 6000-series anodized aluminum and features satin finish for an ergonomic feel. It has a 5.2-inch 720p+ display. The body is narrower by 2mm.

There's an 8MP rear camera with autofocus and a 5 MP shooter on the front. Color options are as follows: Black, Tempered Blue, and Copper. HMD says the new Nokia 5 offers 40 per cent smoother performance with a 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek 6755S chipset which is paired with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, respectively with microSD card support.
