It will include 16GB of internal memory storage and with be expandable like the Nokia 6. Its camera will be 13 megapixels but will retain all the features found in the Nokia 6’s camera.
The Nokia 3 is developed to be company’s lowest-end smartphone. The phone has a five-inch 720 x 1280 display and uses a Mediatek MT6737 chipset with 2GB of RAM. The storage remains the same as the Nokia 5 and 6 but the camera will only be eight megapixels and will include fewer features.
Nokia paved the way for cellphones back in the early 80’s offering some of the first mobile phones on the market. The company continued to grow, releasing phones until the year 2013. After being bought by Microsoft, the company employed many of Nokia’s staff to help develop Windows phones.
Microsoft sold Nokia to a division of HMD Global, a company located in Finland. HMD Global’s goal is to work with Nokia to re-establish the Nokia brand by releasing new devices.
While the Nokia 3 released this month, the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be available in July. All three phones are currently available in India.
