Nokia 3.1 Plus Features

Nokia 3.1 Plus Specification, Features, Price and Release Date

The Nokia 3.1 Plus screen has an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixel. Though it is not the sharpest, but the screen is bigger than what the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus have to offer. And unlike the last two, it does not have a notch.

The back of the Nokia 3.1 Plus houses a dual camera setup; a 13MP f/2.0 main module joined by a 5MP depth sensor. It is used for bokeh effects naturally. At the back, you will also find a fingerprint scanner below the camera, which is the first in HMD’s entry-level lineup. At the front of the device, you will find an 8MP fixed-focus shooter.

The Nokia 3.1 Plus is powered by a MediatTek Helio P22 chipset, which is a bit faster. The all eight cores of the Cortex-A53 processor are clocked higher than that of the base Nokia 3.1. The RAM and storage capacities are the same though; 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB. The internal storage can be expanded via a microSD slot up to 400GB. The Nokia 3.1 Plus runs on Android One (currently Android Oreo, but should be updated to Android Pie any moment from now).

The 3.1 Plus chassis is built out of machined aluminum, combined with a die-cast metal interior for enhanced durability. 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.
