Nokia 3 made its first public appearance in the WMC (World Mobile Congress) event, 26 February 2017. After the successful launch of Nokia 6 in China, they have decided to launch a mid budget phone. Some of the features of this phone were leaked online.
Nokia was taken over by Microsoft and started their Windows phone. Windows phone could not make it up to the expected level but this time they are coming with the android based smartphones. In the list of the Nokia upcoming Android smartphones, Nokia 8 and Nokia Edge are the phones getting famous for their stunning looks and unbeatable qualities. If we talk about Nokia 3, the phone is expected to have the launching price of €139 or Rs. 9,800 (roughly).
The officials have not announced the exact release date but it is expected to launch in the first week of April. Now, in this section, we will talk about the specifications, features, core engine, drawbacks (if any) and much more. Keep reading.

Display and screen:
The built quality of this phone is really good and a plastic panel is provided at back. Nokia 3 will come with the screen size of 5.5 inches and the screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (~282 PPI pixel density). The aluminium metal frame is provided at the edges making the corners sharp.
If we talk about the display type, IPS (In-plane Switching) LCD capacitive touchscreen providing good viewing angles and great colour combinations are used. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 will protect the screen from scratches.
You will see the dedicated touch keypress buttons at the front with no back lid LED. This phone is coming will come with a number of preinstalled Google applications and a simple UI (User Interface).
First of all, it will run on the upgraded Android OS, v7.0 (Nougat). This time they are really compromising with the processor. MediaTek 6737 chipset, Quad-core CPU and Adreno 308 coupled with 2 GB RAM are provided. Only one variant of this phone will be available. Since the price range is too low, I think this one variant would be enough.
- Back Camera: Primary camera of 8 MP with autofocus quality. Some of the camera features are Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama shot. Single LED flash is provided at the back panel.
- Front Camera: Selfie shooter of 8 MP is provided at the top left corner. The proximity sensor is also provided at the same place. At the top right corner, you will see the brand name.

- Dedicated slot for microSD card, expandable memory upto 128 GB
- Stunning looks and Nokia trust.
Cons of Nokia 3
- MediaTek 6737 quad-core processor

Overall Nokia 3 is a good device in a pocket-friendly price range. If we don’t need a high-speed processor then this smartphone is definitely the first choice. Look wise, this phone really feels great in hands. We don’t have much information about the other color variants but the white color is confirmed. Still, some information is missing like the battery, exact price, and exact launch date but I will keep updating this page.
