Nokia 3.1 Plus announced: 6" HD+ display, dual cameras, and 2-day battery life

HMD Global is expected to launch a new phone in India today. Describing the design Nokia says, "The new Nokia 8110 4G has a curved protective cover you can slide open to pick up calls and slide back to end them".

The Nokia 8110 4G gets a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while there is none on the front.

Instead, Nokia has opted for a more traditional 18:9, 6-inch panel complete with reduced bezels above and below. Airtel is offering up to 1TB data free for those who get a recharge of Rs 199 or higher.

The Nokia 3.1 Plus doesn't have any fancy looking design; however, it does look very classy with a no-nonsense design. Nokia also claims that the 1,500mAh battery is good enough to offer up to seven hours of talktime, up to 48 hours music playback, and up to 25 days of standby time on a single charge. The internal space is expandable up to 400GB via a microSD card support.

HMD has added dual cameras on the rear side of Nokia 3.1 Plus.

It took HMD quite a while to bring the Nokia 8110 4G to India, but it is here now and you can bet it will bring plenty of nostalgia if you've ever seen or used the old 8110. In the sub-Rs 15,000 price point, we have the likes of Tecno Camon i2X, Vivo Y81 and the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, with the first two retailing around the same price of the Nokia 3.1 Plus. The company has retained the slider design, and the curved body from the original device. Interestingly, the phone comes with a revamped Snake game. The slide-up phone gets a 2.45-inch QVGA colour display and it runs KaiOS.

As far as updated features go, the Nokia 8110 4G will allow you import contacts and sync your calendar through Gmail and Outlook. It packs a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 dual-core processor coupled with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE with hotspot, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, a Micro-USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
