Nokia's parent firm HMD Global has now launched a new budget smartphone in India.

The budget Nokia smartphone is available for sale on online portals including Nokia India's official website and PayTM mall starting July 21.

HMD Global has been a somewhat late notch adopter, but after biting the Apple-fired bullet with the Nokia X6, the exclusive brand licensee is doubling down by officially unveiling the X5. Besides, the Nokia 3.1 Android One is paired with 2GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.

Before we get into the specs, let's get a couple of things out of the way: the X5 has only been launched in China, but it may get a worldwide release, and if it does come to other markets, rumors suggest it'll have a different name - the Nokia 5.1 Plus.

The 5.86-inch phone uses a notched 1,520×720-pixel resolution display giving it a 19:9 screen ratio, similar to what you'd find on Apple's current flagship and several other new Android phones.

"Nokia 3.1 will receive three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates from launch, as guaranteed in the Android One programme". They will also get two Rs 250 movie cashback vouchers on Paytm. On recharge of Rs 149 pack, users will get 1GB data per day, unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. "On a recharge of RS 595, consumers will get unlimited calls, 100 SMS/day, 18GB data for 6 months", said the company in a note.

It comes with the diamond cut metal unibody design and sports 2.5D curved glass on the front.

The primary camera on the Nokia 3.1 is a 13MP snapper with f/2 aperture. The company says that the smartphone will be available across major mobile retailers in three colors: Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron. The front camera has an 8MP unit with f/2 aperture, fixed focus sensor and 84.6-degree field of vision. The phone has an expandable storage support of 128GB (via microSD card). Indian markets will get only the 2GB variant which comes with 16GB internal storage. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details! A 3060mAh battery powers the smartphone from within rendering a decent backup to it.
