HMD is bringing another Nokia-branded phone to the United States. After launching the $269 Nokia 6.1 last month, the company introduced three additional models the Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 5.1.

Now pre-orders are open for the 5.2 inch Nokia 3.1 smartphone with Android One Edition software. It’s available from Amazon and B&H and the phone is expected to ship on July 2nd.

The Nokia 3.1 features a 1440 x 720 pixel display, a MediaTek MT6750 1.25 GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It has a 13MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, and a 2,990 mAh battery.

While the phone lacks premium features like dual cameras or a fingerprint sensor, it does have aluminum edges, Corning Gorilla Glass, and support for auto-focus and automatic scene detection with the rear camera.

The best thing about the phone is probably that it ships with Android Oreo and it’s an Android One edition phone, which means that not only does it run near-stock Android software, but it should get three years of monthly security updates… which isn’t bad for a $159 smartphone.

The Nokia 3.1 is available in black, blue, and white color options.

  1. Just got the Nokia 6.1. For about $270 it is an amazingly good phone. SD 630 instead of the Mediatek in this one. Also more RAM, More storage, 5.5″, 1920×1080 (maybe the last of its kind 16:9) screen. For about $110 more it is a massively better phone. Android One is awesome! Every Android phone should have this as an option. It will be hard to go back to a skinned phone again.
