HMD Global has announced local availability of the Nokia 3.1 – a $249 smartphone which claims to be one of Australia’s cheapest Android One devices.
Featuring an anodised metal frame, the 3.1 is Nokia’s most affordable 18:9 smartphone, and is the brand’s forth device to join the Android One family.
Incorporating a 5.2-inch HD+ display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the device features a 13MP auto-focus rear camera and MediaTek 6750 octa-core chipset.
Under the hood, the phone claims to offer a 50% performance boost versus the predecessing device.
As an added sweetener, the 3.1 pledges three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates.
