As part of these deals, HMD has taken the wraps off two Nokia phones for Verizon and Cricket. HMD Global managed to get permission to use Microsoft's "PureView" branding and technology, which the company allegedly wanted to implement in the Nokia 9 before it becomes official, and the "PureView" naming will be attached to the device as well it seems.
Joining that model is the Nokia 2 V, the first Nokia phone to be offered on Verizon.
Since the Nokia 1 Plus is an entry-level phone, there is 1GB RAM and the MediaTek MT6739WW chip which is a quad-core processor with the four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz. Nokia has partnered with a couple of major U.S. carriers such as Verizon Wireless and Cricket. Particularly, it carries 5.5 inches 16:6 aspect ratio display.
Furthermore, the microUSB port is ditched for USB-C in this device. It has now been updated to Android Pie making it two major OS updates.
Finally, HMD's also bringing some of its Nokia love to Rogers in Canada, but those details have not yet been made public.
Success in the U.S. is closely tied to wireless carrier support and the most recent example of this is the OnePlus 6T launch with T-Mobile that saw a 249 percent increase over the launch of the SIM-unlocked OnePlus 6 that had no official carrier support. That could change now that Nokia phones will be sold in Verizon and Cricket Wireless stores.Nokia's 3.1 Plus (left) and 2 V (right) are the brand's attempts to break into the US with carrier support. The handset is available through Cricket Wireless stores and website for $159.99 Dollars starting today. It comes with 5.84-inch HD+ PureDisplay, dual rear cameras with 12MP+5MP sensors, an 8MP selfie snapper, Snapdragon 636 chipset with 4GB RAM and a 3,060mAh battery. An 8-megapixel camera graces the front of the 3.1 Plus for capturing selfies. Though that sounds a little underwhelming, keep in mind that a 4,000mAh battery is powering this package, so at least you get multi-day operation. The pricing details are not yet out but it is expected to be priced less than Nokia 3.1 Plus.
