HMD Global Announces PH Availability of the Nokia 3.1 Plus

A budget Android One phone that’s worth considering

After it was launched last October 2018, HMD global is bringing the Nokia 3.1 Plus to the Philippines. Being a Plus model, the Nokia 3.1 Plus is a big step up from its non-plus sibling: for starters, you get a more power-efficient Helio P22 processor to go with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. You also get a bigger, still notch-free 6.0-inch HD+ display, and a larger 3500mAh battery that can last at least a day on regular use.

To round up the upgrades, the 13-megapixel rear camera is accompanied by a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and you also get a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as well.

    You get the same soc powered phone with the Redmi 6 and it won’t cost this much, that already has 3gb ram and 32gb storage.

    With a sea of high quality Chinese phones like Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and their sub brands Redmi, Realme, Honor offering even lower prices I don’t know how Nokia could stay competing at the lower specs entry level. Even at the mid range and high end level the same Chinese makers, the very popular One Plus and now Xiaomi’s Pocophone are waiting for them. Nokia have a loyal following but whether that is enough to sustain them is an open question.
