HMD Global has launched a new phone model for the US market, which will be sold through the AT&T operator under the Nokia 3.1A and through Cricket Wireless, a subsidiary of AT&T, with the Nokia 3.1C model.
With the new release, HMD Global will continue its efforts to grow into the US market with at least so far affordable smartphone models. At the beginning of the year, it was launched in Cricket with Nokia 3.1 Plus and Verizon with Nokia 2 V.
“We are very excited and committed to building long-term strategic partnerships with leading North American operators. The promise of Nokia phones is distinctive and based on our strong vision of consumer needs. They are interested in European design and design, combined with the latest technology, excellent quality, the latest Android operating system with new features, and the appropriate innovations that genuinely improve everyday user experience, ”says Pekka Rantala, Executive Vice President, Marketing, HMD Global. “The position of operators in the distribution field in North America is strong, and the emergence of Nokia phones on the shelves of leading operators will increase our coverage and visibility in North America.”
As with the Nokia 3.1 Plus for Cricket at the beginning of the year, despite its name, the new Nokia 3.1 A and 3.1 C double is almost completely different from the rest of the world with a phone sold under the Nokia 3.1 name.
The Nokia 3.1 A and 3.1 C have a slightly larger 5.45-inch display, an accurate 8 megapixel rear, and 5-megapixel front camera, and a Snapdragon 429 system circuit instead of the MediaTek system circuit. There are 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, plus a microSD card slot, and the battery capacity of 2,990mAh.
In Europe and elsewhere, HMD Global has not supplied the cheapest Nokia 1, 2, 3, and 4 series phones with a USB-C interface like the one in the Nokia 3.1 A and 3.1 C. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Nokia 3.1 A and 3.1 C are not part of Android One, unlike HMD Global’s internationally-sold Nokia smartphone models, but HMD Global guarantees an 18-month upgrade guarantee for phones.
Nokia 3.1 A will be sold through AT&T on June 10 and Nokia 3.1 C via Cricket Wireless on June 14th. The biggest difference between Nokia 3.1 A and Nokia 3.1 C is the color: Nokia 3.1 A is available in black, Nokia 3.1 C in white.
