HMD Global revealed the most awaited Nokia devices in India. The Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 Droids are ready to enter Indian markets. This ensures Nokia’s re-entering in India to “connect people”.

Nokia 3 is targeting the budget looking customers, who need premium looks at low price range. Talking more, a polycarbonate body and metallic frame casts the looks. The handset sports a 5-inch 720p display, 1.3 GHz Quad Core MediaTek 6737 SoC, powered by Android 7.0 Nougat with 2GB RAM. A 16GB inbuilt storage seems good, expandable upto 128GB with a microSD.

“Nokia 3 is special and we strongly believe that a good design and specifications at a budget is something everyone deserves,” said by the company.
