Rumored Nokia 3 specs point to quad-core processor

Peter, 14 February 2017

The Nokia 6 will have company at the MWC. We already heard some basic details about the Nokia 5 and now the whispers of the Nokia 3 have reached us.

Nokia 5 will allegedly cost €200, while the Nokia 3 will be €50 cheaper. Supposedly, you’ll get the same 5.2” 720p screen and a similar (even identical?) camera setup - 13MP main, 5MP selfie. Same amount of RAM too, 2GB, and 16GB of storage.

The only noticeable downgrade is the chipset - from Snapdragon 430 to 425. It’s a pretty major change, mind you. Even though their model numbers are quite close, the Snapdragon 425 has half the CPU cores (4x Cortex-A53) and a much older GPU (Adreno 308 vs. 505).

That (if true) will make the Nokia 3 a strictly entry-level offering, though the price suggests something a bit higher up the pecking order.

This new nokia doesn't have anything special. It is just a plain android device.

I agree I don't expect nor would expect a flagship from Nokia stables till Q3 this year and hats fine. All the models cannot come all at once. It is patience and will be worth the wait.
