Nokia 5.1 Plus Android Mid-Ranger Seen In High-Res Renders

More than a dozen of high-resolution renders depicting what's said to be the Nokia 5.1 Plus appeared online earlier this week, having been authored by OnLeaks in collaboration with Tiger Mobiles and based on insider information. The renders and concept video seen in the gallery below suggest HMD Global is working on a revised version of the Nokia 5.1, an Android mid-ranger announced late last month, together with the Nokia 2.1 and 3.1. The device is said to be featuring a 5.7-inch LCD panel, whereas the Nokia 5.1 debuted with a 5.5-inch screen, though both appear to boast a metal unibody design.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is understood to be approximately 149.5 x 71.9 x 8mm in size, thus having a physical footprint that's nearly identical to that of the non-Plus model, whereas its larger screen is directly attributable to the inclusion of a display notch which replaced the regular-sized top bezel of the Nokia 5.1. As a result, the upcoming handset should feature a 19:9 panel, with the overall package being more akin to the Nokia X6 with its dual rear cameras than the phone that's meant to be its smaller counterpart, as suggested by their monikers. The Nokia 5.1 Plus is expected to be the tenth mobile release from HMD this year and is likely to launch at some point this summer. The mid-ranger should launch in Europe and select Asian markets, as did the vast majority of other Android devices released by the Finnish company since early 2017.

If the differences between the Nokia 7 and Nokia 7 Plus are any indication, the Nokia 5.1 Plus is likely to feature a processor that's better than MediaTek's 2.0GHz Helio P18 powering the Nokia 5.1 and should also debut with more than 3GB of RAM. The device could be identified by the model number TA-1057 or TA-1063, both of which passed through the United States Federal Communications Commission earlier this week but are yet to be attached to any specific Nokia-branded handset with any degree of certainty.
