Design, I call it as re-branding

Recollecting Yifei M7 Nova Core 2.4GHz RC Quadcopter, no big difference i could make out from the design, JJRC H31 is identical to nova core. in my view, its a JJRC re-branding with waterproof top-up. The test flights reveal that its durable to crashes and seems waterproof to some extent (only when immersed half way in the water). The interesting factor of the design is it front nozzle, the bright red diffusing light makes it easy for the beginner for a better orientation.

For your quick comparison, the picture on the left is the Nova Core M7 and on the right is the New JJRC H31 Waterproof Quadcopter

The transmitter has a JJRC trademark, comes with a traditional design with black body and blue  colored buttons and requires 4 AA batteries to operate. As seen on most of the RTF Quadcopters, JJRC H31 TX comes with on/off switch placed in the middle of the throttle and aileron sticks. The bottom portion has a digital LCD which indicates the trim status, battery strength of TX, High/Low modes and flip button on right shoulder. The below picture describes H31 Transmitter Operations.

3.7V 400 mAh Battery

JJRC H31 comes with 3.7 volts 400 mah lipo battery. The weight of the battery is approximately 10 grams and as per the specifications, the flight time is around 8-10 minutes, seems reasonable for 400 mah powered battery. The full charge cycle takes about 45-60 minutes.

 If you have a close look at H31 picture on JJRC website, also referenced below, the drone has a camera attached at the bottom, which means there will either be a H31C with the camera? if so, there should be definitely high powered lipo along with the camera version. one such battery that i found which seems to be compatible fits H31 compartment.
