The wait is finally over. Official Android powered Nokia smartphones are now available in Pakistan, or at least one of them is – the Nokia 3!
Nokia 3 is a mid-range smartphone which comes with basic specifications encased in a metal frame. The phone is now available for Rs. 16,900 in Pakistan.
Design and Display
Nokia 3 comes with a polycarbonate plastic body with machined aluminium frame on the sides. The design is similar to its more expensive siblings, the Nokia 5 and 6. It lacks a fingerprint sensor which is a major flaw in this price range where even QMobile offers one in their Noir E2.
It comes with a 5 inch 720p IPS LCD display with a laminated and polarized screen. This makes the phone easier to view in direct sunlight, similar to the Nokia Clearview display from the long dead Lumia series.
Internals and Storage
Powering the Nokia 3 is a quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor, a staple for phones in this price range. It features 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. Expandable storage is supported via a microSD card slot.
Nokia 3 will come with Android 7.0 Nougat and will be updated regularly. It comes in both single and dual SIM variants.
Camera and Battery
The front and back camera feature an 8 MP sensor, both with f/2.0 focal length. There’s not much to go here except for an LED flash and autofocus on the primary camera.
The battery in Nokia 3 is a respectable 2,650 mAh unit which should last a couple of days on regular usage.
