HMD Global, the maker of Nokia phones has expanded its handset line-up with the Nokia 3.1 Plus smartphone, and its first 4G feature phone, Nokia 8810 or the "banana" phone in India.

As well as smart technology advances, later in 2018, the new update will come with added Digital Wellbeing features to help encourage breaks from screen time. The smartphone comes with a price tag of Rs 11,499 and it will be available starting from October 19. Back in August, HMD unveiled the Nokia 6.1 Plus, followed by the Nokia 5.1 Plus later in September.

The Nokia 8110 3G is powered by a 2000mAh battery and connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, and a micro USB port.

Several details about the Nokia branded smartphones are known. Under the hood is the MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. The Nokia 3.1 Plus also gets big upgrade in the camera department where it now comes with dual modules at the back. The device comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 400GB.

Essential, the company known for its PH-1 flagship Android phone, could soon be coming back with an innovative new smartphone. We know that the Essential Phone didn't get all the love or the attention it deserved and therefore were not getting a PH2 .

On the display front, the smartphone is equipped with a 6.0-inch HD+ IPS display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. The Nokia 3.1 Plus brings an updated design and hardware compared to the Nokia 3.1 and that's what we are looking at today. On the left, you have a SIM 2 slot, and one more slot for the SIM 1 and microSD card. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack for good measure, and it's an Android One phone running Android Oreo out of the box. I have been using the phone since a day now, and after the setup downloading apps, paying casual games for a while, the battery has barely dropped by 25 percent. The phone comes in different colour options including Blue, White and Baltic. For the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture and 1.12-micron pixel size. We are yet to gaze on the overall performance and potential of the smartphone - stay tuned for the complete review shortly. But what makes the Nokia 3.1 Plus stand out from others is the presence of stock Android.

Both the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus turned out to be a real success for HMD Global.

Lastly, the smartphone also packs in a 3,500mAh battery which should be good enough to last more than a day with moderate usage. They look decent, but it will be interesting to see how they fare against the Redmi 6, which is the possibly the best camera phone under Rs 8,000.
