Nokia 3 with 5.2-inch display unveiled in India, priced at Rs. 9,499

Nokia is coming back with a bang. Let’s say its three bangs. As the Finnish company has launched three new devices in India. The Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 are all mid-rangers from HMD Global, which has got license to make Nokia branded phones, tablets and accessories. The trio of devices has been anticipated eagerly in India as they provide excellent build quality, and Android Nougat which is mostly stock. Not to mention the Nokia branding that everybody has been missing.


Nokia 3, smallest of the three, also cheapest, is the Nokia 3 which has an aluminum frame with a polycarbonate back. The device boasts of a 5-inch display with 720p (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution and has sculpted 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top. The processor on the Nokia 3 is a MediaTek MTK 6737 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3Ghz. It is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage (expandable up to 128 GB), same as the Nokia 5.

Both the front and the back have the same 8 MP sensors. The rear camera has LED flash. The Nokia 3 has a modest 2,350 mAh battery and charges via Micro USB (USB 2.0). On the Connectivity front, We have the regular options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, and USB OTG. The Nokia 3 comes with sensors like Accelerometer, e-compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope, and NFC. It is a bummer the device doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor when even ultra budget devices are coming with it.
