It’s always big news when a new Nokia launches a new product — and now the Nokia 3.1 Plus — its first model featuring MediaTek Helio P22 — offers a significant CPU upgrade and extra capabilities compared to the previous Nokia 3.1. The eye-catching 3.1 Plus comes in matte-finished blue, baltic, and white. Sophisticated, sleekly machined aluminum with die-cast metal interior gives the chassis a modern classic appeal with extra internal durability. So it fits into a high-energy lifestyle as comfortably as it fits into your hand and your budget. Think about the two-day life! Its 3,500mAh promises that, so you’ll be freed from constant recharging and battery anxiety.

With an ample six-inch screen, a dual rear camera with 13MP f/2.0 main module that's paired to a 5MP depth sensor for creative and dramatic bokeh effects, along with that generous, larger battery, this is a substantial Android phone—all revved up and ready to go! The big screen omits the notch while still offering a tall 18:9 aspect ratio and keeps the resolution at an energy efficient 720 x 1,440px. There’s a fingerprint reader below the dual cam—a security plus in this entry-level category. The mirror-perfect selfie camera captures at up to 8MP.

The streamlined Nokia 3.1 Plus can thank the power of its faster, 2GHz MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core chipset and superior IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU for great performance. It’s a 12nm chip that offers substantial upgrade with much greater power-efficiency than its predecessor. The memory and storage capacities are 2/16GB and 3/32GB respectively—but there’s also a microSD slot, so you can add up to 400GB more space. The phone runs on Android One for the native Google experience (currently Oreo, but aficionados are awaiting an update to Pie soon). This phone underscores how much more companies like Nokia can now deliver for an affordable price, building on our New Premium momentum with new options and features across a wide range of smartphones for everyone.
