HMD Global launches a new variant of Nokia 3.1 in India

HMD Global – the official licensee for Nokia brand of phones – launched two new Nokia smartphones today in India – the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 5.1. Both these smartphones were first announced back in late May alongside the Nokia 3.1 that was launched by HMD last month in India. Now today, alongside launching the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 5.1, HMD Global also launched a new variant of the Nokia 3.1 in India.


The Nokia 3.1 that was launched in India last month came with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage. However, the new variant that’s launched in India today comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. Of course, there’s also a microSD card slot that allows users to further expand the storage up to 128 GB.

Having said that, apart from more RAM and internal storage, everything else remains the same on this new variant of Nokia 3.1 launched today in the country. The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s MT6750N, and, being an Android One smartphone, it runs stock version of Android Oreo out-of-the-box.

The photography department on the Nokia 3.1 is handled by a 13 MP camera at the back along with an 8 MP camera on the front – both of which have f/2.0 aperture. Having said that, the Nokia 3.1 supports 4G VoLTE and ships with a 2990 mAh battery that fuels the entire package.
