HMD Global has launched a trio of Nokia Android phones in India today. Here, we will talk about the most affordable Nokia 3 smartphone. It is priced at Rs. 9,499 in India and will exclusively go on sale from offline retail stores starting June 16 in Tempered Blue, Matte Black, Silver White and Copper White color variants.
According to HMD Global, the company is focusing on five factors – Bigger Faster, Core Performance, Consistency, Security and Updates, rather than playing the high specifications with competitive pricing game. The Nokia 3 will be available via 400 exclusive distributors with 80,000+ retail reach across the country. Also, Nokia Mobile Care support will be available in 300 cities along with Pick up Drop services in 100 cities. Take a look at the specifications and features of the Nokia 3 below.
The Nokia 3 features a 5-inch 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass display, which has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (HD) and pixel density of 294 PPI. The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS and is being powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor along with Mali-T720 GPU. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage but the user can expand it further up to 128GB by adding a microSD card.
The Nokia 3 boasts of a 8 megapixel primary camera with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture at the back. The rear camera can shoot HD videos as well. There is another 8 megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture for clicking selfies and making video calls. We also get a 3.5mm audio jack along with FM Radio.
The Nokia 3 packs in a 2650mAh battery (non-removable) under its hood but it does not support fast charging. In the connectivity department, it comes with 4G VoLTE, 3G HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and GPS. It supports Dual SIM, packs a polycarbonate body and is 8.48mm thick.
The Nokia 3 priced at Rs. 9,499 is slightly expensive compared to its competition in the market. However, Nokia is focusing on the offline market and will surely be doing very well there. If the phone is available on e-commerce portals in the future, we will surely list it in our best smartphones under 10000 category. HMD Global has also launched the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 smartphones.
