Nokia brand licensee HMD Global has unveiled the Nokia 3.1 Plus, a bigger and better version of the 5.2-inch display Nokia 3.1 that was launched in May.

The Nokia 3.1 made a reasonable sub-$200 choice for an entry-level smartphone, featuring a 5.2-inch display, and a rear 13-megapixel (MP) camera and an 8MP front-facing camera.

With full Android Oreo, it was the cheapest new option launched in May along with the Nokia 5.1.

The Nokia 3.1 Plus is still a sub-$200 device but offers Nokia fans a larger six-inch display at an 18:9 aspect ratio, and dual rear cameras above a new fingerprint sensor.
