It has been a few weeks since HMD Global took the wraps off the Nokia X5 in China. We already know it is getting a global launch and will launch as the Nokia 5.1 Plus but we do not know when that will be. Apparently, the launch should not be far off seeing as the device has gotten Bluetooth certified.
Five variants of the Nokia 5.1 Plus were certified and according to NokiaPowerUser are said to be for different markets. The five versions are TA-1108, TA-1120, TA-1112, TA-1102, and TA-1105. The variant with model number TA-1105 was certified in Malaysia last week.
There are speculations, HMD Global may combine the release of the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus which makes sense. Fans are eager to get their hands on both phones so there is no reason to spread their release.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus will come with a 5.8-inch screen with a 1520 x 720 resolution. It will be powered by an Helio P60 processor with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
It will also have dual rear cameras (13MP + 5MP), a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and an 8MP front-facing camera. Battery capacity is 3060mAh and it will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Unlike the Nokia X5, the Nokia 5.1 Plus will be part of the Android One program.
