Is the Nokia 5.1 Plus Launched?
The Nokia 5.1 Plus, the latest from the family and the successor of the earlier 2017 Nokia 5 model is expected to be launched in the market soon. The previous iteration was a rather incomplete launch as it offered only a mildly improved overall experience than the Nokia 3 series, but at a higher price. However, HMD is doing much better with the Nokia 5 Series. Getting closer and closer to the Nokia 6.1, the company is making certain compromises to keep the cost on the lower side. So they come up with their sub-$250 priced gadget.
