At a press event which took place yesterday in Moscow, Russia, HMD Global announced a refreshed portfolio of mid-range and entry-level Android powered smartphones for 2018: the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1. The first two phones run Android Oreo, while the latter has a Go Edition of Android v8.0 preinstalled on it.
“We are encouraged by the response that we are getting to our products. Our consumers tell us they love their Nokia smartphones on Android. With this range, we deliver larger screens, enhanced performance across our range with processor upgrades offering up to 50% higher performance while maintaining the perfect balance with power consumption and stunning designs – all in a segment where consumers often need to compromise. With our renewed portfolio, you can now enjoy a premium smartphone experience without paying a premium on the price. Each phone radiates effortless style with meticulous attention to detail and no matter your budget, you will be able to find a Nokia smartphone that is right for you,” said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global.
The Nokia 5.1 is the most performant of all three and it sports a timeless classic, more refined all-metal design as you can see in the promo video below. The new Nokia phone comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ screen resolution and 2.5D Gorilla Glass to protect it.
Nokia 5.1 is juiced up by a 2,970 mAh battery, it is equipped with MediaTek’s Helio P18 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz, a 16MP main camera at the back, Android Oreo stock, and it will be available in Copper, Tempered Blue and Black colours (available a few weeks later) as of July and in 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM and in 3GB RAM + 32GB of ROM starting at 190 Euros.
