HMD Global (the parent company of Nokia's phones) announced three new Nokia phones in May: the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1. The three phones are 2018 updates to last year's Nokia phones. Each one is built with affordability in mind.

The Nokia 3.1's specs look like this:

  • 5.2-inch screen
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 8-megapixel wide angle front camera
  • Octa core Mediatek 6750 processor
  • 16GB or 32GB of storage

The phone officially releases in the US on July 2. If you pre-order now you can expect it to ship sometime around then.
