HMD, the company behind modern Nokia-branded phones, has announced five new “US exclusive” phones coming in the first half of this year.

None of them are flagship devices, there is one 5G device, and all five are set to be priced under $250 or 18,570 INR. HMD has also revived a classic Nokia design as a modern feature phone, the Nokia 2760, a flip phone that inherits its name from the original 2007 device.

The company is not fully detailing the specs of the five devices today and says that it intends to release this information closer to each handset’s launch.
