The Nokia 3 V could launch soon as Verizon's latest budget offering
The Nokia 3.2

In an effort to increase Nokia’s presence in the United States, back in January HMD Global – the company in charge of developing Nokia smartphones – partnered up with Verizon to release the Nokia 2 V.

The budget smartphone costs just $69.99 and isn’t going to grab headlines anytime soon. However, it’s a cheap way of testing the market’s interest in Nokia devices. And from what can be seen, things are going extremely smoothly. 

According to tipster Evan Blass, Verizon and HMD Global are now moving ahead with the development of yet another smartphone, dubbed the Nokia 3 V, which will be a Verizon-only version of the recently-announced Nokia 3.2.

This device, for those of you that aren't aware, features a large 6.3-inch notched display paired with a glass and aluminum construction. In addition to this, a 13-megapixel camera can be found on the rear, while up front sits a 5-megapixel selfie sensor.

As for the inside, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 429 sits alongside one of two storage configuration options. The cheapest model includes 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, but if this isn’t enough, a slightly pricier variant with twice the storage and 3GB of RAM is on its way.

The Nokia 3.2 is expected to hit shelves sometime during the second quarter. Pricing for the US has already been announced as $139 (2/16GB) and $169 (3/32GB), although it’s unclear if Verizon will reduce this further once it releases its variant.

Looks like the budget phones thing is working out for Nokia, but they have yet to offer something that can really rival the G7. They have the 7.1, yes, but they have multiple other midrange phones that have slightly better specs such as the 7 Plus that was never released in the US. I would have easily copped that jawn.
