Affordable triple-camera Nokia 3.4 smartphone reaches New Zealand


The Nokia 3.4 smartphone is now available in New Zealand at a recommended retail price of $299, offering a cheaper option for a phone that still packs a triple camera, decent performance, and long battery life.

The Nokia 3.4 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 Mobile Platform, boasting a 70 percent performance upgrade over the previous generation. It’s got a 6.39 inch HD+ display, an AI-powered triple camera, and two-day battery life, with Android 10 out of the box, two years of software updates, and three years of security updates. It also offers a “pure Android experience that’s free from bloatware and third-party apps”.

There will bea few different colours available, though Fjord (“a cyan blue that shifts to purple”) seems to be the only one retailers have listed at the time of writing. Other colours include Dusk (“a deep purple that shifts into a beautiful golden-red tone”) and Charcoal (“a classic grey with a subtle golden tint”). All three colours have a die-cast metal chassis and seamless structure for a durable finish.

“With the new Nokia 3.4 we wanted to stay true to what made its predecessor successful, but also push the boundaries on what features we can include on a phone that’s designed to bring big experiences without the big cost,” said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President of North America, HMD Global.

“The Nokia 3.4 gives New Zealanders more power, more screen and more freedom to push the boundaries of your creativity thanks to the ultra-wide lens and AI imaging. Plus, its signature two-day battery life lets you make the most out of your day. We are also bringing a refreshed look to the portfolio by introducing new, vibrant and living colours to the portfolio – inspired by the beauty of the Nordic nature that we all know and love. All of that supported by our Android promise – as always, pure, secure and up-to-date.”
