Nokia 3 is Now Officially Available in Pakistan

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.

        • Ayaz Malik

          You right but this price range should be fine. Nokia 5 and 6 comes with snapdragon.

          • Someone

            Finally, we have someone who can beat Abdul Wahab. Good going.

            • Ayaz Malik

    • Armaghan

      by the way comparison is fair…

      • I am not comparing NOKIA vs QMOBILE :
        Q K Chay Mobile Se to Lakh Gunha Behtar hai NOKIA Wo Bhi Q Mobile K Price Main

        • Taha Najam

          Tbf the comparision is not that absurd, since Nokia is doing the exact same thing here as Qmobile: stamping their logo on a generic Chinese built mobile and calling it a day. People should realize that the old Nokia is dead, and these are nowhere near the quality of their former phones.

          • Muzamil

            K.

    • Abdul

      nokia aae ya na ae, tu har jaga tati krne zror phunch jana

      • Oralover Odeveloper

        • Ayaz Malik

          I think Samsung Galaxy S8 should be work with all VR apps etc.

          • Oralover Odeveloper

            thanks for reply but its very expensive right now.

            • Ayaz Malik

              Definitely….!

  • At price of 17k what you are getting Mediatek MT6737, 720p, 2GB, 8MP. You can get much better thing in 17k from Mi. Mi has excellent quality hardware and software.

    Price of Nokia 3 should be 12k or less. by the way it is already outdated now.

    • Kashif Surhio

      is Mi officially available in Pakistan?

      • Aslan Haider

        yup

      • Oralover Odeveloper

        yes, you can get from Daraz / yayvo etc. just search for it. i have Mi Redmi 4A bought from Daraz.

  • fonephreak

    with these specs it shouldn’t cost more than 10k

    • Brand Se Bhi Farq Pharta hai :
      Ap Iska Isteemal Dewaar Pe Keel Thokne K Kaam Pe La Sakte hai

      • Xahid

        10 year old news. now the market trend is change.

  • sniper

    nokia will win back its space as it was in pakistan i am sure we still have respect for nokia quality mobiles… i was a crazy fan all the time.

  • Xahid

    Its good to see Nokia is back with good price, but not competitive price, Xiaomi Redmi 4a has better spec’s, OS, and lower price, you need to beat it Nokia,

  • Umar Awan
