It now looks like the Nokia 5.1 Plus would be available for purchase in offline retail stores earlier than expected. This is expected to begin from as early as January 15 across India.

Now, as per a NokiapowerUser report, Nokia loyalists could check out the Nokia 5.1 in authorized brick-and-mortar retail centres for a discount of Rs 400 on the original pricing of the handset. At this juncture, it is worth understanding that the Nokia 5.1 Plus along with the high-end Nokia 6.1 Plus received price-cuts online. During this time, rumour mills had pegged that the Nokia 5.1 Plus would appear within physical retail stores very soon.

For starters, Nokia 5.1 Plus comes with key technical specifications such as:

  • 5.8-inch display
  • Android 8.1 (Oreo) over the Android One platform; eligible for Android 9.0 (Pie) as an OS update
  • MediaTek Helio P60 SoC
  • Dual cameras viz 13 MP and 5 MP with dual-LED flash
  • 8 MP front snapper
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32 GB internal storage
  • Support for external microSD card to expand internal storage
  • LTE, HSPA, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity
  • 3060 mAh fixed battery.

With Nokia 5.1 Plus now apparently set to hit physical retailers relatively earlier than expected, this could mean that there would be comparatively increased units stocked up in order to potentially mitigate the buyer/Nokia loyalist expectations.

In related developments, the Nokia 6.1 Plus also recently received another price cut online and the handset is now available for purchase at Rs 15999. Being an important smartphone as far as the overall Nokia branding is concerned, the Nokia 6.1 offers key hardware aspects to buyers such as:
