Back in late September 2018, Nokia Malaysia announced the new Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus but there was no price unveiled for the latter. However, that is all changed now - the Nokia 5.1 Plus will be available at all authorised Nokia retailers in Malaysia as well as Nokia mobile’s official store on Lazada Malaysia for RM899 tomorrow (6 November 2018).

Considering the price, we think it's a very value-for-money smartphone as it features mid-tier tech specs including a MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor, which is quite a relatively new processor that's good enough for graphics intense games nowadays. On the back, it has a 13MP + 5MP dual rear camera with Portrait Mode enabled and Bothie feature too, which allows the user to take videos and photos on the back and front at the same time. Design-wise, it's well crafted with a 2.5D curved front and rear glass along with an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch HD+ display on the full metal body and a polycarbonate frame.

Moreover, the phone will be available in Gloss Black and Gloss Midnight Blue running on Android One out of the box. Nokia Malaysia also said Android Pie will be updated on the device when it's ready in the near future. Customers who purchase it will bring home a free backpack, tempered glass screen protector and a protective cover case worth RM200.
