The Nokia 3 has a 5.3-inch HD screen and a 13-megapixel camera on the back of the device according to the latest rumor which also leaks the rest of the specifications for the device. Nokia is said to be preparing three new phones for an official announcement at Mobile World Congress at the end of this month, and the Nokia 3 is one of those, while the other two are said to be the Nokia 5 and a reboot of the Nokia 3310, alongside an appearance of the Nokia 6 which was already been available in India unofficially and has so far only officially launched in China. In regards to the Nokia 3, this will be one of the new Android-powered smartphones coming from HMD Global who is handling the production of Nokia's new handsets.

In addition to the display (which may also potentially be a screen size of 5.2-inches) and the rear-facing camera, the Nokia 3 will also come with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video chat. Qualcomm is rumored to be handling the computing as the Nokia 3 will be powered by a Snapdragon 425 CPU which comes paired with an Adreno 308 GPU for the graphics processing, as well as 16GB of internal storage space and 2GB of RAM for the memory. Rounding out the leaked specifications is Android 7.0 Nougat for the software version of the Android platform, making the Nokia 3 one of the most up to date Android devices in a category that still isn't terribly saturated with other handsets, as there are still only a smaller number of devices that have been bumped up to Nougat, though that will change soon enough.

In addition to the leaked specifications, the rumor also states that the Nokia 3 will be announced on February 26th at Mobile World Congress, while alleging that it will have a release date set for March or April in Europe and potentially other markets, though nothing is officially known at this time. What's more is that the Nokia 3 is also rumored to cost around €149 which would signify some pretty decent hardware for an entry-level Android device. There's no mention of the Nokia 3 getting a U.S. release so there is no information on a U.S. cost. That being said, the device is rumored to release in major markets so there's potential for it to launch in more than just Europe this Spring.
