HMD Global brought two new budget smartphones in India, one of which is the Nokia 5.1 Plus which is essentially the Nokia X5 with a different name. The Nokia 5.1 Plus, like other Nokia phones, comes with Android One and a notch-equipped tall screen. It will be available on HMD Global’s own store and Flipkart sometime in September. The pricing will be revealed later.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus features a glass exterior and a 5.86-inch 720p screen with an aspect ratio of 19:9. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 octa-core chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage which is expandable, and a 3000mAh battery.

There are two camera sensors on the rear — a 13-megapixel primary f/2.0 lens and a secondary 5-megapixel snapper. On the front, you’ll find an 8-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.2.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus’ biggest highlight, however, is that it features a stock build of Android 8.1 making it a direct competitor to Xiaomi’s Mi A1. Dual-SIM and Dual 4G VoLTE compatibility are available as well. There’s also a fingerprint reader situated on the rear and a USB Type-C port on the bottom.
