We’ve been excited to see the Nokia resurrection at MWC 2017, as they unveiled the Nokia 3, 5 and 6, with Android in tow. We even got to handle them in a hands on session and now we get to unbox the Nokia 3, as shown below. The device is the entry level unit of the trio, priced at $150.
It comes inside a white box with colorful top, with images of young people holding hands engraved on it. Inside the box we find a charger, manual, headphones, SIM key and the USB cable. By the way, the headphones included here are the same kind I got with my own Lumia 520 and they’re also not very different to what we saw arriving with the Nokia 3310 (2017).
The handset itself has a rounded metal frame, a polycarbonate back and uses a 5 inch IPS LCD display with a 720p resolution. Inside we find a quad core MediaTek MT6737 processor, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot. There’s Gorilla Glass protection upfront and on the camera front we get an 8 MP back shooter with LED flash and 720p filming only, plus an 8 MP front camera for the selfies.
The battery inside the device is a 2650 mAh unit and Android 7.0 Nougat is the OS of choice. There’s LTE Category 4 here and the handset has a dual SIM and single SIM version. Nokia promised us fast updates in the future, as soon as they arrive from Google. The software seems pretty stock and fast moving, so thumbs up for that. You can get the device here and we’ll be back soon with a full review.
