And of course, it's an Android One smartphone with a promise of timely software updates. "While we are a full range player, a bulk of our portfolio is focussed on this category", HMD Global VP India Ajey Mehta told PTI. HMD has also added some silver accents around the rear camera module and fingerprint sensor, which I'm always a fan of as it gives the device an extra touch of premium-ness. "We have been strengthening our portfolio to offer a varied selection of devices to our customers", he said. The Android One phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor and it comes with 2/3GB RAM and 16/32GB storage options. The phone can be purchased via offline and online Nokia partner retailers starting October 24.

The company, which is aiming at least a 3x growth in sales this festive season over the previous quarter, also launched its "made for India" smarthphone the Nokia 3.1 Plus with a price tag of ₹11,499.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus has a dual-camera module on the back, featuring a 13-megapixel primary sensor of f/2.0 aperture size and 1.12 micron pixel size, mated with 5MP depth-sensing lens of f/2.4 aperture size and 1.12 micron pixel size. It also has a 3D face scanning face ID feature (with infrared emitters, similar to the iPhone X) and VOOC fast charge support. It supports expandable storage up to 400GB using microSD card. The phone runs Android Oreo out of the box. It comes with a 2MP rear camera with single LED flash.
HMD Global is also advertising two days of battery life; even if the phone doesn't make it that far, its larger 3,500mAh battery should be plenty.
