Nokia 5.1: Overview
The Nokia 5.1 packs a 5.5 inch Full HD (1080 x 1920) IPS display with a pixel density of 439PPI. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass (unspecified) and is edged out by a 2.5D glass. If you were expecting a FullView Display with 18:9 aspect ratio, it sadly isn’t here. And encasing this display is an aluminum shell which gives the overall phone a premium look and feels.
Under the hood, the phone packs a 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P18 processor coupled with the Mali-T720 GPU. The processor is backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

The phone also supports dual-sim cards and is 4G capable.
In the camera department, the Nokia 5.1 packs a f/2.0 16MP rear camera along with a dual-tone LED flash. The phone also has a f/2.0 8MP front camera for all your selfies. Software-wise, the phone runs Android One with Android 8.0 Oreo as its base. It is a sweet offering from Nokia!
The Nokia 5.1 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner embedded into its back panel. Other sensors included an accelerometer, proximity sensor, compass, and a gyroscope. And finally powering the device all up is a 2970mAh non-user removable battery. This will be more than enough to get users through a full day of usage on a single charge.
