It boasts 13MP+5MP dual camera with LED flash on the back. Users can even adjust the blurriness of the Bokeh effect even after taking the photo. And on the front, it is an equally impressive 8MP selfie snapper.
Another notable aspect of the device is the battery. Nokia 3.1 Plus comes with a 3,500mAh battery, which is more than sufficient to last one and a half day under mixed usage.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus comes in Blue, White and Baltic colours for Rs 11,499 and will be available starting October 19 at top mobile retailers in India and on Nokia.com/phones.
Airtel subscribers on Nokia 3.1 Plus will receive 1TB of 4G data on a plan of Rs 199 or above tariff plans.

It comes with contemporary features such as super-fast 4G VoLTE network support, access to applications such as voice-command-enabled Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter, option to send and receive emails or import your contacts and sync your calendar with Outlook and Gmail.
With a simple straightforward user-interface, Nokia 8810 reloaded version features intuitive tactile mechanics, with slide to answer and end calls, as well as an addictive helicopter style spin on its axis.
