It is good news for all Nokia Smartphone lovers as Mkopa adds the Nokia C31 phone to its list of Mkopa smartphones. This means that if you would love to upgrade your device but you don’t have enough money to get one, you could run over to the nearest Mkopa agent and get yourself Mkopa’s new Nokia C31 device.
Introduction: A Brief Overview of MKopa and its Services
M-Kopa is a company in Kenya that provides smartphones and other products like Solar power TVs on higher purchase terms. Basically, an interested person pays a deposit for the product they would like to purchase from Mkopa and then makes a daily payment for about a year until he or she clears the remaining balance.
When the person is unable to pay for the daily amount, the device will be disabled until they are able to pay the required amount. This daily amount will depend on the price of your device, for example, for the Nokia C01 Plus, you will have to pay a daily instalment of Ksh. 40/=, while with a high-end device like the Samsung A22, the customer will be paying daily instalments of Ksh. 85/=.

Features Of Nokia C31: Highlights Of Nokia C31 Specs and Key Features.
I will give you a brief overview of the specs of the device so that you can judge whether or not you need to get it, and if it’s worth the money;
The screen display size of the Mkopa Nokia C31 smartphone is 6.75″(Inches) which is pretty big to ensure you enjoy its usage and have a good experience when playing games and watching movies or videos from YouTube.
On the backside, the phone packs three camera lenses to give you great photo shots so that you can keep your memories alive while having a good time with your friends and relatives. The three cameras of the Nokia C31 include:
- A 13MP wide camera.
- A 2MP Macro lens
- A 2MP depth camera.
On the selfie side of things, the phone has a 5MP camera that is situated on the front side. This is not a very good quality selfie camera as compared to other phones like the Samsung A22 which comes with a 13MP selfie camera. This might be a good alternative smartphone if you are looking for a good selfie camera on a relatively friendly budget.
To ensure that you have the power to use the device without any interruptions, the Nokia C31 carries a 5050mAh Lithium battery to keep you going. On basic day-to-day activities, the battery can last you up to 3 days on a single charge. If you use it to watch movies and have extensive internet use, you can get up to 7 hours on a single charge.
Storage and Memory
The phone has a storage capacity of 64GB which is enough for everyday use. Mkopa’s Nokia C31 also has a RAM of 4GB which is enough for normal use and can also play games like Pubg, though not as well as the Tecno Camon 19 Premier, which is a higher-end device with better specs.
It also has an expandable SD memory slot which gives you the option of expanding your smartphone’s storage capacity to your liking. If you feel that this memory is still not enough for you, please consider options like external hard disk or cloud storage services like Mega, or google drive which gives you additional storage of up to 20 GB on their free account.
Other Nokia C31 Fearures
Other Mkopa Nokia C31 features and goodies include;
- The fingerprint sensor is on the back side of the phone for added security. The Nokia C31 fingerprint sensor is pretty fast and responsive.
- The Smartphone supports Dual nano sim cards so that you can have more than one sim card on your phone. This is particularly important if you have more than two sim cards and you don’t like carrying more than one phone.
- The device also supports face screen unlock, which is really faster, but I recommend the fingerprint sensor because this face unlock option might sometimes fail, especially in areas of low light.
- The buyer will receive a free Mkopa T-shirt and 1GB of data from Mkopa to get you started.

Conclusion: My Final Thoughts About This Announcement By Mkopa To Kenyans
I think this is good progress from MKopa, and I encourage them to continue expanding the list of mkopa phones for Kenyans. This gives us more options to choose from, and therefore good satisfaction for the customer.
As for the phones, I recently purchased the Samsung A23 for my sister from Mkpa, and the phone is good. Therefore, I would recommend Mkopa to anyone who is thinking of getting a smartphone from them.
I know the price difference is big, but ask yourself, where else would you get the Smartphone of your dreams, and get to pay it for 365 days, with such small daily payments?
