HMD Global is out with yet another Nokia smartphone. This time the device belongs to the sub Rs. 15,000 price segment. The Nokia 3.1 has officially launched in India on the 19th of July at a price of Rs. 10,499. Nokia plans to sell the device on Paytm Mall and on their own website and it will available at offline retail stores as well. Out of the box, the smartphone will use the Android 8.0 (Oreo) and receive further updates to Android 8.1 (Oreo). The company claims a secure and up to date Android experience with Android One for the device. The sale for the Nokia 3.1 will start on the 21st of July.
The Nokia 3.1 has a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 720 px and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone has an aluminium frame with a glass front panel and a plastic back panel. The phone weighs around 138.3 g. Nokia claims that the display uses Corning Gorilla Glass but, the version of glass used is unspecified.
Running on an octa-core MediaTek MT6750, the Nokia 3.1 features the Mali-T860MP2 GPU. Out of eight cores, four Cortex-A53 cores run at 1.5 GHz and the remaining four run at 1.0 GHz. In India, only one storage variant of the smartphone will be sold which is the 16GB variant with 2GB RAM. The Nokia 3.1 has a MicroSD card slot allowing users to expand the storage up to 256GB.
The camera setup of Nokia 3.1 consists of single primary and secondary sensors. The primary camera is a 13MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. This sensor is capable of shooting 720p videos at 30 fps as well. The secondary camera on this device is an 8MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture.
There is a 2990 mAh Li-Ion battery powering the Nokia 3.1. Considering that the smartphone is slightly underpowered, the 2,990 mAh should last a day in an ideal use case scenario.
A device running on Android One means that it will receive the latest updates for the operating system as soon as they are available. On paper, the Nokia 3.1 seems like a value for money smartphone.
