HMD Global’s Nokia plans recently came out in the open courtesy a detailed report which revealed that the company was looking to launch the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 3310 at a February 26 event on the eve of the MWC 2017. The in-depth leak didn’t have much to say about the first other than its cost.
Nokiapoweruser now claims that the Nokia 3 is in fact the same entry-level handset it had previously referred to as the E1 back in January this year. The smartphone is apparently going to run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, a common feature expected for most upcoming Nokia devices.
The Nokia 3 may be powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor which could be supported by an Adreno 308 GPU. In terms of memory, it’ll likely contain 16GB of internal room and 2GB of RAM. Its screen might measure 5.2-inch or 5.3-inch and output a 720p resolution.
As for its photography skills, the Nokia offering is expected to carry a 13MP rear camera and 5MP selfie shooter. VentureBeat thinks the device will be priced at €149 (roughly $158 or Rs 10600). The site says HMD will concentrate on the European market with its fresh crop of smartphones. The handsets might get released sometime between March and April this year.
The Nokia 3 probably won’t be debuting alone at the MWC 2017. It might be accompanied by the global variant of the Nokia 6 and all-new Nokia 5. There’s even talk of a revamped version of the Nokia 3310, a feature phone known for its sturdiness.
