Nokia 5.1 Brings Modern Improvements & New Features

In Nokia’s new lineup of Android phones (2.1 and 3.1), the most high-end phone (compared to the other two) is the new Nokia 5.1, which sits squarely at the middle of the entire Nokia portfolio.

Design and Display

Nokia 5.1 design and display

While its low-end brethren make do with plastic (with metal accents), the Nokia 5.1 comes built with a single block of anodized aluminum, which’ll be available in Black, Blue, and Copper.

The display is also a large 5.5” panel with 18:9 aspect ratio, this time with FHD+ resolution, resulting in 443 PPI. This time it has a fingerprint sensor as well.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get an octa-core MediaTek Helio P18 processor, which should be good enough for light usage. There are RAM options of 2 and 3 GB, as well as storage options of 16 and 32 GB.

The OS running here is Android 8.1 Oreo, which is hardly customized.


The camera on the back is a single 16 MP lens with phase-detection autofocus, dual LED flash, and 1080p video recording.

The front shooter, on the other hand, is an 8 MP shooter with f/2.0 and a wide-angle lens.

Battery and Price

The battery capacity is set at 2970 mAh, though, it likely misses out on fast-charging.

Pricing starts at $220 and $250 for the 2 and 3 GB variants, respectively, however, the phone might struggle against dual-lens phones. At least, it has the style and the display in its favor.
