The Nokia 5 has a slightly smaller 5.2” display, but it packs the same SoC as its older sibling, all while being slightly cheaper at €189 (around PHP10,000). Another promising thing about the 5 is it’s seamless metal unibody, which would certainly be nice to hold.

The last phone of Nokia’s lineup is the more budget 3. It’s priced at €139 (around PHP7,400), and packs a Mediatek MT6737 processor. It probably won’t be the fastest phone out there, and the rear camera is a bit of a step down from the 5, but it still packs an 8MP front camera.

Availability of these three phones are still yet to be announced.
