Nokia 3.1 now available in US for $159 from Best Buy & Amazon

Nokia 3.1

Since acquiring the licensing rights to sell Nokia-branded smartphones we have seen HMD Global achieve great success in the market. While some OEMs opt for heavy customizations in their software, HMD Global has opted to join the Android One program for all of their devices and as such have been able to quickly roll out security updates. Nokia smartphones haven't been readily available in the United States barring a few options like the Nokia 6 2018 (AKA the Nokia 6.1), but today the Nokia 3 2018 (AKA the Nokia 3.1) goes on sale in the U.S.

HMD Global first announced the Nokia 3.1 smartphone at the tail end of May as their latest budget Android One smartphone. It is a successor to the Nokia 3 that was brought to market last year and it's pretty middle of the road when it comes to specifications. Here are the specifications:

Nokia 3.1
OS Android 8.1 Oreo
Display 5.2-inch 18:9 HD+ (1440×720)

Chipset Octa-core MediaTek MT6750

The Nokia 3.1 is currently on sale at retailers including Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Amazon for $160. This segment is rather popular in the United States as it can offer some decent specs for the price point. Motorola has done very well for themselves in this segment thanks to the Moto G and we could see HMD Global doing the same.
