Nokia’s 5.1 Plus will be available in Australia from 2 November

Alex Kidman 29 October 2018 NEWS

Nokia's quest to deliver numerous low-priced Android phones continues with the Nokia 5.1 Plus set to launch in Australia for just $379.

Nokia – or to be precise, HMD Global, the folks who hold the rights to release phones under the Nokia name – has announced that the Nokia 5.1 Plus will launch in Australia from 2 November at a price point of $379 outright. Nokia first announced the Nokia 5.1 Plus back in August, so it has taken a little while to reach our shores.

That price will score you a 5.8-inch, 18:9 720 x 1520 pixel phone running on a MediaTek Helio P60 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. It's packing a 3060mAh battery with charging via USB C.

On the camera front, the Nokia 5.1 Plus features dual rear lenses, with one primary 13MP f/2.0 lens backed up by a 5MP depth sensor. At the front, there's an 8MP f/2.2 selfie camera.

Like the smaller Nokia 5.1, which we recently reviewed, it's an Android One phone that will launch with Android 8.0 ("Oreo") on board, but with three years of Google security updates guaranteed, as well as the next two full Android OS updates.

This means it'll see both Android Pie shortly, and Android Q when that's available in 2019. Being Android One natively, it's also not particularly encumbered with lots of additional pre-installed apps, making it very much a blank slate for you to build from.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus will go on sale in Australia through JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Officeworks.
