Up front, the phone gets an 8MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and 80.4-degree wide angle view. Apparently the info comes from some unnamed "foreign sources", and they also say that we should expect "many surprises" from the announcement - as if the unique rear camera setup wasn't enough. Ever since HMD Global started making handsets under the Nokia name people have been anxiously anticipating the company's first true contender for the top of the line space.

To recap, Nokia 5.1 Plus has a 5.86-inch HD+ display, 2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor, 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card slot.

Like other global variants of HMD Global's Nokia phones, the Nokia 5.1 Plus is part of the Android One programme, which guarantees timely updates and a stock Android interface.
