Nokia’s new 5.1 Plus smartphone has a flagship processor but an affordable price


Nokia has just unveiled its new Nokia 5.1 Plus smartphone in Australia – one of the most affordable devices in the market to be powered by the advanced octa-core MediaTek Hello P60 chipset usually seen in more expensive flagship products.

The device has a 5.8-inch 19:9 high definition edge-to-edge display and is running the Android One version of the Android Pie operating system which comes with three years of monthly security updates and the next two lettered Android updates so the Nokia 5.1 Plus can work as good as the day it was purchased well into the future.

On the camera side, the Nokia 5.1 Plus has a dual 13-megapixel/5-megapixel rear sensors with optical image stabilisation, depth-sensing imaging for bokeh blur to create dramatic portrait shots.

AI also comes into play with the phone’s camera to optimise the mode and settings to provide the ideal shot.

The front camera has 8-megapixel resolution so your selfies will look good as well.

There’s also a 3060mAh battery onboard which is enough to handle your daily streaming and gaming.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is available in Gloss Black and goes on sale on Friday November 2 for $379.
