Nokia 3.1 to go on sale in the US on July 2 with $159 MSRP
HMD launched the Nokia 2.1, 3.1, and 5.1 globally last month. In typical fashion, however, the devices are only just making their way to the US—good news, considering the fact that a number of Nokia devices have ignored the region completely.
Going by HMD’s press release, the Nokia 3 will go on sale on July 2. It will be available on both Amazon and Best Buy—unlocked, of course—and will come with a US$159 price tag.
The Nokia 3.1 sports a 5.2-inch HD+ display, with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. It’s powered by MediaTek’s MT6750, and features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. At the rear of the device is a single 13 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, while the front houses an 8 MP sensor, also with f/2.0 aperture.
The device runs on stock Android Oreo, by virtue of its Android One status, and gets its juice from a 2990 mAh battery. Consistent with HMD and Android One policy, the Nokia 3.1 will receive three years of security updates, and two years of major OS updates that will see it get Android Q next year or by early 2020.
