Yesterday, HMD Global officially launched the arrival of its newest mid-range device from the Nokia brand for the Philippine Market, the Nokia 5.1 Plus.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus sports a compact form factor, and boasts a 5.8-inch HD+ 19:9 edge to edge display, and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 processor, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable with a microSD card.

At the back of the device is a 13MP + 5MP dual rear camera system with PDAF, the second one used for depth sensing. At the front is an 8MP snapper. The device has a feature called Live Bokeh, which allows you to adjust the point of focus,

The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, and is part of the Android One program. It packs a 3,060mAh battery. Positioned as an ideal smartphone for casual gaming, it’s also the official mobile partner of Synergy 88, producer of the all-Pinoy mobile game – Barangay 143.

Our vision was to deliver reliable performance, AI imaging and contemporary design in an accessible device. With the Nokia 5.1 Plus, we aim to bring exciting gaming and entertainment experiences closer to a wider group of Filipino fans. Through this, more people can play mobile games, binge-watch their favourite series and capture great content. The Nokia 5.1 Plus is for our tech-savvy fans who love finding the best price-performance combination.
