Last month, HMD Global Oy released the top-end Nokia 6.1 Plus in India for Rs 15,999 and now, the company has announced the price and availability details of the budget Android One phone Nokia 5.1 Plus.
The new Nokia 5.1 Plus looks similar to the Nokia 6.1 Plus in terms of exterior design language but differs in internal hardware.
It sports a 5.86-inch HD+ display with an iPhone X-like notch on the top, which houses a front camera and a set of sensors. The screen is made of LCD and features 19:9 aspect ratio.
On the reverse, it boasts sturdy polycarbonate-based shell on it with an additional layer of the glass-like material top, to offer premium-like look.
Under-the-hood, Nokia 5.1 Plus houses MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core backed by 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage (expandable up to 256GB), Android Oreo and a 3,080mAh battery, which is more than enough to last a full day under mixed usage.
As far as the camera is concerned, it boasts 13MP+5MP dual shooters with LED flash on the back and an 8MP snapper on the front. With two cameras, the device offers Portrait Mode, which allows users to adjust the clarity of the scene behind the subject. Users can change focus on the background to get Bokeh blur effect.
It may be noted that Nokia 5.1 Plus will soon be getting the latest Android Pie and will also be eligible for Android Q update in 2019.
