Beginning August 23, you’ll find the Nokia 3 V exclusively at Verizon, priced at a very reasonable $168.
For that price, the device comes equipped with a 6.2″ HD+ display, Snapdragon 429 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, face unlock capabilities, dedicated Google Assistant button, and Android Pie, but possibly most interesting, Verizon and HMD specifically mention, “consumers will receive a year and a half of monthly security patches and two OS upgrade guaranteed, so that the smartphone with just keep getting better with time.”
This will be something to keep an eye on.
Earlier this year, HMD and Verizon partnered to release the Nokia 2 V, which was exclusive to the carrier’s Prepaid lineup of devices. The 3 V, though, is available to post-paid subscribers.
The 3 V will be available on August 23 in select Verizon stores and on Verizon’s website for $7/month for 24 months via a device payment plan.
