For Rs 11,499, Nokia is touting its massive display for overall good multimedia experience, great photography experience and a two-day battery life. The Nokia 8110 4G is priced at Rs. 5,999. The top is loaded with a 3.5mm audio jack, while the base, there is a micro USB port, which is flanked between two speaker grilles.
The rear panel isn't glass like the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but that's really okay because the metal panel is smooth to the touch and gives the device a very classy look and feel to it.
Nokia 3.1 Plus relies on MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor with 2GB/3GB RAM. The Nokia 3.1 Plus also gets big upgrade in the camera department where it now comes with dual modules at the back. It comes in two variants - 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage. It features a 6-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution IPS LCD 18:9 aspect ratio display with a 2.5D curved glass. Just like the earlier launched Nokia devices, the new Nokia 3.1 also joins the Android One family.
The dual cameras and the fingerprint scanner are placed on the rear side, followed by the Nokia branding and Android One logo. The handset itself has 4GB inbuilt storage along with microSD card support for up to 32GB. I have been using the phone since a day now, and after the setup downloading apps, paying casual games for a while, the battery has barely dropped by 25 percent.
On the software front, the Nokia 3.1 Plus runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Nokia 8110 4G price in India has been set at Rs. 5,999 and will be sold in Banana Yellow and Traditional Black colour options. Still, HMD Global could offer more details with regards to the pricing and availability of the smartphones at the launch. It comes with a dedicated microSD card slot, enabling users to further expand the phone's storage capacity. Unlike other phones that attract smudges, and are prone to slipping out of the hand, the Nokia 3.1 Plus offers a ideal grip, something I liked. Like the other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 3.1 Plus is also an Android One handset and comes with a promise of timely software updates. On the front, the phone comes with an 8 MP camera with f/2.2, fixed focus lens.
With the Nokia 3.1 Plus, HMD Global is stepping in the crowded segment where there are a number of options already. On paper, Nokia has a few things going in its favour - stock Android OS, good design and build, and dual cameras.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus still remains an unconfirmed smartphone from HMD Global.
