The Nokia 3.1 Plus has recently been spotted three times on Geekbench. In all the three listings we observed that the smartphone is running on Android 9.0 Pie. In one of the listings, the smartphone scores 834 for its single-core and 3,520 for its multi-core. The Nokia 3.1 Plus, like many HMD Global devices is part of the Android One programme. The devices which recently received Android Pie update are Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 8, Nokia X5, Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1. Taking that into account, it is not surprising that the Nokia 3.1 Plus would also receive the same update soon enough.
To recall, the Nokia 3.1 Plus features a 6-inch HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 720×1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. There is a 2.5D glass that comes without a display notch. The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 (MT6762) SoC. There is a single RAM variant of 3GB that brings 32GB onboard storage. A microSD card slot expands the memory by up to 400GB. There is a dual rear camera setup that includes a 13MP sensor along with an f/2.0, PDAF lens and a 1.12-micron pixel size.
The secondary monochrome sensor is 5MP that comes with an f/2.4, fixed focus lens and 1.12-micron pixel size. The Nokia 3.1 Plus is powered by a 3,500mAh battery and has multiple connectivity options. They include a 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/A-GPS, microUSB and a 3.5 headphone jack. Sensors include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, e-compass, fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor. The Nokia 3.1 Plus measures 156.68×76.44×8.19mm.
Now that we have given you the good news, there is some bad news as well. The Nokia 8, for which Android Pie update was announced on December 19, 2018, has been delayed. Considering that it is one of the best smartphones HMD Global has launched, owners might have been very disillusioned. The Nokia 8 sports an IPS LCD capacitive 5.3-inch touchscreen. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor.
