About a month after it was first announced, HMD’s global latest entry-level smartphone has now found its way to the largest phone market in the World.
Now officially listed on China’s Suning online retailer site, the Nokia 3.1 plus won’t go on sale until November 29 at Rs 9,499/$134 for the 2GB RAM option and Rs 11,499/ $161 FOR the 3GB variant. At that price point, the newly unveiled Honor 10 lite appears to be a better deal, even though it is about some Yuan (~$30) pricier than the Nokia 3.1 plus.
First revealed about a Month ago, the Nokia 3.1 pLUS is a decent update to the impressive Nokia 3.5 updating the device with some of the features not present in the Nokia 3.1. The device flaunts a 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio, coupled with a rear fingerprint scanner. Under the hood, the device houses a newer MediaTek Helio P2 2 with 2GB or 3GB of RAM paired with a native storage of 32GB expandable using a microSD card slot.
