You can check out detailed official specifications, features, price, release date, images, videos related to Nokia 3.1 Plus on this page. The first is a brand new Nokia smartphone that sees its debut in the country, while the second is a nostalgia-fueled feature phone that was first announced way back at MWC 2018 in February. It will retail in India for ₹11499 starting 19th October. HMD has cut some corners to achieve the price tag of Rs 11,499.

The latest Nokia 3.1 Plus promises to deliver smooth performance, paired with a classic design, massive display, bigger battery and a good pair of cameras without burning a hole in your pocket.

Nokia 3.1 Plus is priced at Euro 159 globally. So the India pricing is lower. Nokia has also tied up with Bharti Airtel to bundle free 1TB data.

Alongside increasing tariffs, communications between the two sides have become more and more strained in recent weeks. We demand that the United States side stop this kind of misguided action.

Instead, Nokia has opted for a more traditional 18:9, 6-inch panel complete with reduced bezels above and below. The screen is protected by 2.5D glass. The 3.1 Plus is powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 chip and two RAM/storage configurations are available - 2/16GB or 3/32GB (with MicroSD support).

Nokia 3.1 Plus has dual rear camera, a combination of 13MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary lens. There is an 8MP front shooter for selfies, but lacks a flash module. However, it has a similar offering in the form of Nokia 6.1 Plus which sports the same chipset. The Nokia 3.1 Plus ships with Oreo, but since it's an Android One device (as are all current Nokia models), we'd expect it to be bumped up to Pie in the not too distance future. Battery life is a big focus here, with 2 days being promised from the 3,500mAh capacity. HMDGlobal also surprised with the arrival of Nokia 8110 4G phone in India. I will talk more about this display in my full review as I didn't get a chance to take the phone to direct sunlight. It packs a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 dual-core processor coupled with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory.
