- The price cut brings the Nokia 3.1’s MRP down to ₹9,999 and makes it the cheapest smartphone in the Nokia lineup
Nokia’s nomenclature of its smartphones with numbers and decimals has been a bit confusing. It’s not clear if Nokia 3.1 Plus is a better smartphone than the Nokia 5.1 Plus given the fact that it’s priced a bit higher and has lower specifications than the latter.
But the Nokia 3.1 Plus recently received a ₹1,500 price cut which has brought its MRP down to ₹9,999, making it the cheapest smartphone in the Nokia lineup.
NokiaPowerUser, a website dedicated to Nokia products, reports that it spotted the price change in retail stores. HMD Global is yet to update it on Nokia’s online store.
This also means that the smartphone maker has made it clear that the Nokia 3.1 Plus is supposed to be cheaper given its name, which has a lower number. Several customers found out the Nokia 5.1 Plus offered a better deal, given its higher specifications at ₹10,999.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus was launched in October and it comes with a 6.0-inch HD+ LCD display at the front which has a resolution of 1440x720 and is powered by MediaTek MT6762, an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. The phone runs the Android One platform based on Android Oreo, which guarantees it latest software and security updates.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus was launched in September. It sports a 5.86-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a resolution of 1520x720. The phone is equipped with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor. It comes with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage that is expandable up to 400GB.
