Nokia's parent firm HMD Global has now launched a new budget smartphone in India. The device has been included in the Android One programme, which means it will receive regular monthly security patches for three years and two Android OS updates right after they are released.
The Nokia 3.1 made its global debut alongside Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 2.1. The all-new Android One handset was initially unveiled in Russian Federation back in May this year. This makes the smartphone slightly costlier than its predecessor.
Nokia 3.1 is priced at Rs 10,499 for the 2GB RAM/16GB storage variant and will be available to buy in three colors: Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron.
Just like every other smartphone maker, Nokia now offers its own iPhone X clone. The Nokia 3.1 was introduced as the successor to Nokia 3 in Russian Federation in May and marks the embrace of taller 18:9 display on company's budget smartphone. It comes with a polycarbonate back with aluminum sides and packs a 5.2-inch HD+ (1,440 x 720p) IPS LCD display. The front panel has Corning Gorilla Glass layered on top for added protection. Previously, the Nokia 3.0 came with a Mediatek 6737 quad-core chip. The phone has an expandable storage support of 128GB (via microSD card). It comes with auto focus and LED flash. At the front, the device bestows an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and an 80.4-degree wide-angle lens. The device is powered by a 2,990 mAh battery.
