Nokia 3 is a Nokia-branded budget Android smartphone from the Finnish company, HMD Global.

Nokia 3 is currently the second-most affordable smartphone by HMD. It launched with Android Noguat 7.1.1 and has been updated to Oreo.[2] The phone uses a MediaTek system on a chip MT6737, and features a polycarbonate back shell with a metal frame; a similar styling cue as the Nokia Lumia 925.

HMD is providing monthly software updates to the phone to help keep users secure.[3]

Due to the relatively affordable price, Nokia 3 is seen as a spiritual successor to the Nokia X family that was released back in 2014.



The Nokia 3 has a 5.0-inch LTPS IPS LCD display, Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 Mediatek MT6737 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded using microSD cards up to 256 GB. The phone has a 2630 mAh Li-Ion battery, 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and 8 MP front-facing camera with auto-focus. It is available in Silver White, Matte Black, Tempered Blue, Copper White colors[4].


Nokia 3 is shipped with Android 7.0 Nougat and is upgradable to Android 8.0 Oreo. In 2018 HMD GLOBAL reported one more year of support for all its android devices.

Oreo beta was available for Nokia 3 from February 26, 2018. Final Oreo release for Nokia 3 came on April 12, 2018.


It was announced on 26 February 2017, a day before Mobile World Congress started, along with the higher-end Nokia 6 (global variant), lower-end Nokia 5, and a new version of the Nokia 3310.

The Nokia 3 was released in India on 13 June 2017.[5][6] It was released in United Kingdom on 12 July 2017.[7]
