What are the Nokia 3.1 (2018) specs and features?
The Nokia 3.1 is a bigger upgrade than the name suggests, with boosted internal specs, a new exterior design, and sporting a fancy tall 18:9 display.
That makes the 3.1 Nokia’s most affordable 18:9 smartphone yet – and one of the cheapest on the market – with a 5.2-inch HD+ display (up from the 5-inch 16:9 display of the Nokia 3), made out of 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass.
Beyond that, the phone has diamond-cut aluminium sides in contrasting colours, which has become one of Nokia’s design staples recently. You’ll be able to get the Nokia 3.1 in three colours: Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron.
When it comes to internals, the phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek 6750, a small upgrade on last year’s quad-core MediaTek MTK 6737 -either 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, though it’s possible that the UK market will only get one option or the other.
The camera has also had a big boost up to a 13MP sensor with auto focus (last year’s model had a slightly underwhelming 8MP shooter) though the selfie camera is unchanged. Once again the phone boasts NFC for use with Google Pay, which isn’t always guaranteed at this price range, along with a headphone jack – though it sticks with the slightly old-fashioned Micro-USB charging port.
