The revival of the Nokia line of smartphones kicked off late last year with the introduction of the Nokia 6 and continued early this year with the Nokia 8, and now HMD Global, the company licensed to produce smartphones with the Nokia brand for the next couple of years, has launched the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 in India, as earlier promised.

The specifications of the Nokia 3 weren’t clear before now, but the smartphone has just gone on sale in India and we now have a full list of its confirmed specs.

Nokia 3 Specifications, Review and Highlights

Design & Display

Contrary to previous speculations that the smartphone will possess a 5.2-inch screen size, the Nokia 3 has a 5-inch 2.5D sculpted glass display with an HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

Its design is similar to what we’ve seen in teaser images, consisting of a polycarbonate body and slightly curved edges, as is typical of all Nokia Android smartphones we’ve seen before.

Memory & Performance

The Nokia 3 comes with 2GB of RAM and has 16G of default storage space which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor running on the 64-bit architecture with a max speed of 1.3GHz.

Camera

The Nokia smartphone sports an 8MP camera with a LED flash and f/2.0 aperture at the rear, with the same camera lens without a LED flash present at the front for taking selfies.

Battery & Connectivity

The Nokia 3 runs on a 2,650mAh battery which has the capability to take the user through half a day of average use. It comes with a dual SIM slot and supports network with 4G Voice-over-LTE.

Software & Hardware

The Nokia 3 boots the latest version of the Android Operating System, Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with the UI very close to stock Android, unlike previous Android smartphones produced by the then Microsoft-owned Nokia.

Something I don’t like about the Nokia 3 is that it doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor.
