It looks like HMD Global won’t stop until their Nokia budget devices have successfully hijacked the market. After months of teasing, the company has launched the Nokia 5.1 Plus in India, priced at INR 10,000 ($151).
The new Nokia device comes with a 5.8-inch LCD Display, housed with a notch at the top. A 2.5D curvature glass covers the front and back of the device. The device has a glossy finish on the sides, which gives it a polished look. However, the 1520×720 resolution might get in your way of the full Android experience.
For photography, the device holds a dual camera set up at the back: 13MP being the primary camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5MP depth camera.
On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera which comes with f/2.2 aperture and 80.4-degree wide-angle lens.
On the inside, Nokia 5.1 Plus is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60, coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of phone storage, which is expandable with MicroSD Card up to 400GB. The Octa-core processor can deliver up to 1.8 GHz of speed, which seems adequate for this device.
Similar to other Nokia devices, Nokia 5.1 Plus is also powered by Android One. In other words, the device is running stock Android 8.1 Oreo and will receive three years of update support from Google.
As for the battery, the device has a 3,060mAh battery, but it only supports 10W charging. This means you will not see fast charging in the Nokia 5.1 Plus. In India, the device comes in two colors — Gloss Black and Gloss Midnight Blue.
Nokia 5.1 Plus is available exclusively on Flipkart and Nokia online e-store for Indian users. The device will go on sale from October 1st. Airtel carrier network users in India can avail INR 1,800 cashback and 240GB free data over 12 months on the plans of INR 199, INR 249, and INR 448.
