South Africa is one of the first markets in which the Nokia 3, the most affordable smartphone in HMD’s lineup, went on sale, and that happened today. The 3 comes with an 5-inch HD screen, 2GB RAM, 8MP front and rear camera, Mediatek’s M7637 processor and 2630mAh battery.
The Android Nougat powered budget smartphone will retail for 2,199ZAR or €152. It’s interesting that HMD also announced an official in-car charger case, among other official accessories.
Justin Maier, Vice President Sub Sahara Africa at HMD Global, said:
“Premium is an experience, not a price point. We’ve been extremely thoughtful about the overall performance of the Nokia 3, to ensure that a premium high quality experience is fully accessible for everyone. In today’s cash strapped times, where people aren’t willing to compromise on quality, design or delivery, the Nokia 3 is the perfect mobile companion for value-conscious consumers.”
Nokia 3 is globally expected to launch this month for an average retail price of €139.
