Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus launchIBTimes India/YouTube

HMD Global Oy's new Android One series phone Nokia 5.1 Plus is finally up for grabs in India via online stores, including Flipkart.

The new Nokia 5.1 Plus originally made its debut in China with different moniker— Nokia X5— in August. It looks similar to the Nokia 6.1 Plus (aka Nokia X6) in terms of exterior design language but differs in internal hardware.

Nokia 5.1 Plus flaunts 5.86-inch HD+ display with an iPhone X-like notch on the top, which houses a front camera and a set of sensors for Face Unlock feature. The screen is made of LCD and features a 19:9 aspect ratio.

On the rear side, it sports a sturdy polycarbonate-based shell on it with an additional layer of the glass-like material top, to offer premium phone-like feel.

Inside, Nokia 5.1 Plus comes packed with a 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.
