Nokia 5.1 European Launch Begins: Up For Pre-Orders In Russia

by Michele Ingelido 0

HMD Global has refreshed most of its line-up of affordable phones in May by unveiling Nokia 5.1, 3.1 and 2.1 in Moscow. The company has then announced that the most expensive 5.1 would be officially up for grabs starting from July. But starting from now, if you live in Russia, you can already pre-order a 5.1. The device has been added to Nokia’s official online store in Russia but, unfortunately, the listing price is not known yet. Alongside this device, another handset went on pre-order in the Russian official site of the Finnish brand.

Nokia 5.1 featured

We are talking about the “banana phone” Nokia 8110. Unlike the Nokia 5.1, this is a classic feature phone, a revisit of the old and iconic 8110. But despite being a feature phone, it features the 4G LTE connectivity thanks to which you can surf the web with blazing speeds. The price listed on the website is RUB 5,990 which roughly translates into $95. Unlike its bigger brother, this device has already been launched in several countries, while the 5.1 is still not in the market. While waiting for it to go on sale, it is worth reminding its specs. Nokia 5.1 is much better than its predecessor as it features a way more performing SoC.

It is equipped with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P18 chipset running at a max clock frequency of 2 GHz. It will be launched in two configurations: one with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB ROM and another with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB ROM. It has a full metal unibody design made of solid 6000-series aluminum, as well as a 5.5-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a size of 5.5 inches and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. The main camera is a single sensor with a 16 MP resolution, while the front camera has a resolution of 8 MP. Nokia 5.1 comes with a 2970 mAh battery and Android 8.1 Oreo installed out of the box.
