Nokia 3 India Launch: All You Need To Know

Nokia has returned to the Indian smartphone market. One of the devices leading its charge in the country is the Nokia 3. The premium budget smartphone will compete against the likes of Moto E. So, after having spent a bit of time away from India, does Nokia stand a chance at recapturing its former glory? If yes, this phone will be contributing quite a bit to it. With that in mind, let’s take a look at Nokia 3 price in India, launch date, specifications, and features


Nokia 3 Price in India

Price Rs 9,499

The Nokia 3 (cheapest of the three) is priced at Rs 9,499. It will be available exclusively via offline channels from June 16. The Nokia 3 is available in two variants – single SIM and dual SIM. However, considering how folks here carry two phones instead of one, expect the dual SIM variant only to come to India. For that, a Rs 9,999 price tag seems nice.
