Last week, the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juhi Sarvikas, hinted at the Nokia 5 (2018)’ existence when a fan asked about it. It appears it won’t be the only entry level/lower mid-range Nokia phone from last year getting a successor. Apparently, the Nokia 2 and Nokia 3 will also be getting new models this year.
Back in February during MWC, the CMO of HMD Global Pekka Rantala disclosed in an interview that there will be new Nokia 2, Nokia 3, and Nokia 5 models. A user agent profile has confirmed the existence of the Nokia 3 (2018) or Nokia 3.1.
The Nokia 3.1 is running Android 8.0 Oreo and that is the only information revealed by the user agent profile. The rest of the specs may leak later before the launch.

The first-gen Nokia 3 has a 5.0-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a MediaTek MT6737 processor. It also has a single 8MP rear camera and another 8MP front-facing camera along with a 2630mAh battery.
Judging by the Nokia 6.1/Nokia 6 (2018) we presume the Nokia 3.1 will retain its display size but get a more powerful processor, an upgraded camera, and maybe even a fingerprint scanner.
