Nokia 3, the cheapest of the three new Nokia Android smartphones by HMD Global, went on sale earlier this month through offline channels. Now, the Nokia 3 is available to buy via online channels as well, though not officially.
Croma, the offline retailer, has listed the new Nokia 3 on its online site which means interested users can get the new phone without actually visiting the physical store.
Priced at Rs. 9,499, the Nokia 3 is available to buy in Black colour while other colours have gone out of stock. Prior to this, the Nokia 3310 was also available via Croma’s online store – which is also offline exclusive in India. The Nokia 5 has also been listed at the online store of Croma though currently ‘out of stock’. As announced earlier by HMD Global, the Nokia 5 will be going up for pre-bookings starting July 7 through offline channels. The Croma listing was first reported by Gizbot.
The company unveiled the trio of Android smartphones in India earlier this month. The Nokia 5 price in India is Rs. 12,899.
To refresh, the Nokia 3 is targeted at those who are looking for a premium-looking handset at a budget and features a 5-inch HD display, Android 7.0 Nougat, and 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek 6737 SoC. It comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). Optics include an 8-megapixel camera on both the front and back. The Nokia 3 packs a 2650mAh battery and measures 143.4×71.4×8.4mm.
