The is priced at Rs 11,499 in India. The Nokia 3.1 Plus comes with a metallic and there is a matte finish at the back.
Inside the Nokia 3.1 Plus, things are a little less premium.
Today, manufacturers have been trying different types of smartphone designs - Realme is offering a glass back, Xiaomi and Asus offering metallic back, and so on. Unlike other phones that attract smudges, and are prone to slipping out of the hand, the Nokia 3.1 Plus offers a flawless grip, something I liked.
The rear panel isn't glass like the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but that's really okay because the metal panel is smooth to the touch and gives the device a very classy look and feel to it. The phone is constructed out of plastic which you'll notice right after picking up the handset. The device also gets a dedicated MicroSD slot apart from the dual sim tray.

Out of the two, one is a 13-megapixel primary sensor, and the other one is a depth sensor of 5-megapixel resolution. It supports live bokeh feature as well as manual mode and slow-motion. I am yet to test the cameras, but I'll talk about it when I review the smartphone soon.
Both the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus turned out to be a real success for HMD Global.
Can the Nokia 3.1 Plus will be able to drive the company to new heights? Like the other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 3.1 Plus is also an Android One handset and comes with a promise of timely software updates. Interestingly, the phone comes with a revamped Snake game.
HMD has added dual cameras on the rear side of Nokia 3.1 Plus. This segment is interesting given the number of options, but it is confusing for customers. Now, the important question here is whether the features and stock Android justify the Rs 11,499 price point.
