Tapped as a more generous model in terms of specs, the Nokia 3.1 comes with a smaller 5.2-inch screen but it offers a trendy 18:9 HD+ IPS display. It also features an Oleophobic coating with Corning Gorilla Glass on top.

Under the hood, it is powered by MediaTek 6750 octa-core processor complemented with Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. Moreover, it is coupled with a bigger 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Downside? It sports an underwhelming 2990mAh battery compared to the Nokia 2.1's whopping 4000mAh juice.

Moving on to its photography department, the 3.1 variant bounces back with its better 13-megapixel main shooter, and 8-megapixel front camera with 84.6-degree wide-angle sensor.

Just like the Nokia 2.1, the device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition), and will be updated to Android Pie once available.

The Nokia 3.1 will be available starting August 29, with a price tag of only Php9,990. Meanwhile, it is now up for pre-order until August 26. Those who will pre-order the phone will get a free JBL Go Bluetooth speaker. Consumers can also score it on Home Credit for a 6-month installment plan with 0% interest.
