Nokia backed by HMD Global has been doing the rounds over the internet for last few weeks and rightly so. The company is all set to announce three new android smartphones at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017: Nokia 6 Global variant, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. While most of the details about Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 have appeared already, the Nokia 3 specs remained a suspense.
Luckily, the new round of rumors seems to be clearing the air about the said smartphone. As reported by NokiaPowerUser, Nokia 3 is internally called Nokia E1 and is supposed to be an entry level android offering.
The Nokia 3 will feature a 5.5-Inch HD display with 1280 X 720p resolution. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core SoC and Adreno 308 GPU. The internal storage for the device will stand at 16 GB alongside 2 Gigs of RAM. The handset will support micro-SD card and will come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
As for the camera, the device will support a 13MP shooter on the back with LED flash and a 5MP snapper with fixed focus feature on the front. It will be priced at €149 (around $158/Rs. 10,587) as reported earlier by Evan Blass, the reliable leakster.
Going by the pricing, we can expect the budget-friendly Nokia 3 to first launch in price conscious market like Asia and Africa, before heading to Europe and the US. Still, the last decision remains with HMD Global and the roadmap they are following.
Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will be unveiled on February 26 in Barcelona alongside the refreshed Nokia 3310 series feature-phone. It will be interesting to note the markets the company is planning to enter with these offerings.
