Nokia 3.1 Android One Launched in India

Nokia 3.1 Android One Launched in India

It is the successor of the Nokia 3 smartphone that was launched in the country early a year ago.

The smartphone comes with a bigger 5.2-inch HD+ display that's taller than its predecessor thanks to its reduced bezels and 18:9 screen aspect ratio. In addition, users can get Rs 250 movie cashback vouchers which can be redeemed against booking a minimum of two movie tickets via Paytm. With this, it will also be among the most affordable smartphones to boast an 18:9 display. Lastly, ICICI Bank credit and debit cards are entitled to 5 percent cashback on purchase. The company says that the smartphone will be available across major mobile retailers in three colors: Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron. It will be powered by a MediaTek MT6750N processor paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD card.

Nokia is giving away several launch offers and cashbacks on the new smartphone.

It comes with the diamond cut metal unibody design and sports 2.5D curved glass on the front. Likewise, you'll find dual cameras on back: an f2 aperture 13-megapixel one with faster phase detection autofocus and a secondary 5-megapixel camera for "depth of field". The firm also explicitly promises Android P support when Google releases its next big Android update. The smartphone runs Android One operating system joining the league of Nokia smartphones under Android One initiative that includes Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6.1.

Nokia 3.1, first launched in Moscow in late May, has now made its way into the Indian market. Idea and Vodafone also offer unlimited calls, 100 SMS per day and 18GB data for six months with recharge of Rs 595.

"On a recharge of Rs 149 pack, they will get 1GB data/day, unlimited calls and 100 SMS/day for 28 days; additionally, consumers upgrading from 2G or 3G phone to the new Nokia 3.1 will get 1GB data/day for 28 days". The phone is backed by a 2,990mAh battery.
