HMD Global Oy is all geared up to release the mid-range Nokia 5.1 Plus Android One in India later this month.
In August, the Finnish company had announced Nokia 6.1 Plus along with Nokia 5.1 Plus, but only rolled out the former, as it could get at least a month's time on the store shelf and the sale doesn't get cannibalised by the latter. Now, HMD Global Oy is finally ready to reveal the availability and price details of the Nokia 5.1 Plus in India.
The company's official e-commerce partner Flipkart has opened the dedicated Nokia 5.1 Plus page on its website confirming it will go on sale on September 24. However, there is no word on the price and we believe HMD Global Oy will announce it in coming days.
For those unaware, Nokia 5.1 Plus looks identical to Nokia 6.1 Plus in terms of exterior looks but differs in internal hardware.
Nokia 5.1 Plus comes with 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 back, it boasts sturdy polycarbonate-based shell with an additional layer of glass-like material top, to offer premium-like feel.
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 the Bokeh blur effect.
It can 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.
