HMD Global, the company behind Nokia smartphones, has today announced yet another mid-range smartphone will be coming to the UK 8211; the aluminium-bodiedNokia 5.1.
- Which is the best mid-range phone under £400?
The Nokia 5.1 is coming to the UK in two colours: tempered blue and black with 16GB storage (sadly the trendy copper colour isn8217;t coming to the UK at present). You can order today online from Carphone Warehouse but it will be available in store from 12 September.
The Nokia 5.1 is based on the MediaTek Helio P18 2.0 GHz octacore chipset, has 2GB of RAM, the aforementioned 16GB of storage, 16 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front snapper. Nokia reckons the device is around 40 percent faster than the previous version of the device.
The screen is a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display in 18:9 aspect ratio protected by Corning Gorilla Glass while there8217;s NFC for Android Pay. Android Oreo is preinstalled, but it8217;s Android Pie-ready, says Nokia, so expect an upgrade to the new operating system to drop at some point.
Oh and yes it has that Nokia trademark 8211; the FM radio.
