Nokia 3.1 Plus released with 6-Inch Display: Price, Specifications And More
The new Nokia 3.1 Plus brings a roomy 6.0” screen to the entry-level Android One market. The Plus model offers dual camera photography, a fingerprint reader and, of course, a larger battery over its sibling, the Nokia 3.1.
The screen has an 18:9 aspect ratio and keeps the resolution at 720 x 1,440px. So, it’s not the sharpest, but the screen is bigger than what the 6.1 Plus and 5.1 Plus have to offer. And, unlike those two, it doesn’t have a notch.
Most of Nokia phones fall in the affordable to mid-range segments, which is arguably where the bulk of the competition is, so the company is making sure there is a Nokia phone for everyone’s taste and preference. The Nokia 3.1 Plus is yet another affordable offering.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus has been launched at Rs 11,499.
The back houses a dual camera – the 13MP f/2.0 main module is joined by a 5MP depth sensor. It’s used for bokeh effects, naturally. There’s also a fingerprint reader below the dual cam, the first in HMD’s entry-level lineup. The selfie camera is a fixed-focus 8MP shooter.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus is powered by a faster chipset, a MediaTek Helio P22. The all eight cores of the Cortex-A53 processor are clocked higher than the base Nokia 3.1 The RAM and storage capacities are the same, though – 2/16GB and 3/32GB. Three’s a microSD slot for up to 400GB more. Again, the phone runs Android One (currently Oreo, but should be updated to Pie before long). The surface has a matte finish and is available in three colors: Blue, Baltic and White.
The P22 is a 12nm chip, significantly more power efficient than the 28nm chip in the non-Plus model. Combined with the larger battery, 3,500mAh, the Nokia 3.1 Plus promises 2-day battery life. A bit unfortunate that it uses a microUSB port.
