Rumored Nokia 3 specs point to quad-core processor

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.
