The wait is over as Nokia has stepped into Pakistan with their new Android based smartphones – at least one of them the Nokia 3 has officially released in the country with Jazz offering six months of free internet with every purchase of Nokia 3 in Pakistan.

Nokia 3 is a mid-range smartphone that comes with basic specifications encased in a metal frame. The smartphone incorporates a polycarbonate plastic body having machined aluminium frame on its sides.


The design of Nokia 3 seems to be similar to its more expensive siblings, the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. However, the smartphone lacks a fingerprint sensor which seems to be a major flaw in this price range where even QMobile offers one in their Noir E2.

The Nokia 3 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.

We get a quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor powering the Nokia 3 under the hood. The smartphone features 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage with an option of expansion by using a microSD card slot.

Nokia 3 comes with Android 7.0 Nougat as its operating system with an assurance of regular updation. It comes with both single and dual SIM support in four distinctive colours – Silver White, Matte Black, Tempered Blue and Copper White.

On the camera front, we see the same 8 MP sensor with f/2.0 focal length on front as well as rear of the smartphone. There’s not much to go here except for an LED flash and autofocus on the primary sensor.

The Nokia 3 is equipped with a modest battery source having 2,650 mAh to power up the device – may last a couple of days on regular usage.
