HMD Global just made another step in its global expansion in order to push Nokia’s name forward. The Finnish company just released the entry smartphone Nokia 3.1 in the United States, that is now available for purchase in various retailers such as Amazon, BestBuy, and B&H Video. The handset carries the $160 price tag and comes unlocked.
However, there is a small catch, despite its “Unlocked” status, the Nokia 3.1 doesn’t support most of the CDMA carriers in the Uncle Sam country. So users wishing to grab this device will have to choose between AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless and some other carriers with GSM connectivity.

Worth mentioning that it comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out-the-box, but since this is an Android One device, it should be updated to Android P few months after its official release.
