Nokia 5.1 Plus is coming and HMD doesn’t need a poll for it

HMD Global is becoming one of the most prolific Android smartphone makers of late and you might not know it. That’s mostly because their smartphones are, of course, branded as Nokia phones. But more than the name, they have proven themselves to be quite the formidable contenders in the market and almost every new model is met with anticipation. The new mid-range Nokia X5 is no different and HMD Global has more or less confirmed that it is coming to the rest of the world, too.

Nokia 6.1 Plus: Nokia X6 with Android One for everyone else

Nokia 6.1 Plus: Nokia X6 with Android One for everyone else

It seemed at first that HMD Global would be bucking the trend and going against common practices in the Android market. It did, after all, put nearly pure Android in its Nokia phones. But with the Nokia X6, it proved it could also play the notch game. Just a day after it launched the low-range Nokia X5, HMD Global is now launching the Nokia 6.1 Plus which is, for all intents and purposes, the Nokia X6 with two differences: it runs Android One and it will launch outside of China.

Nokia X5 debuts, possibly Nokia 5.1 Plus for everyone else

HMD Global needs no major events to announce a new member of its growing army of “pure Android” smartphones. Just weeks before Samsung’s Unpacked, the OEM unveils the Nokia 5X, its second smartphone with a notch. But while the Nokia 5X may be slated only for the Chinese market, rumors say that, unlike the Nokia 6X, it could actually make it to international markets under a different name: the Nokia 5.1 Plus.

Nokia 5.1 Plus renders hint at a Nokia X6 for the rest of us

HMD Global has so far proven itself to be a very admirable Android OEM that is returning the Nokia brand to its former glory. While its numbering scheme seems to be just as puzzling as the old Nokia, it is also producing well-designed and affordable devices with a commitment to pure Android and fast updates. But even HMD Global has been affected by the notch fever that is gripping the market. And if you thought you were safe because the Nokia X6 is confined to China, leaks of a Nokia 5.1 Plus might shatter that illusion.

Nokia A1 Plus/Nokia 9 might be the flagship smartphone to beat

HMD Global and Nokia, however, may have something still up their sleeves. A certain Nokia “A1 Plus” or “A1P” or “AOP”, which could be the Nokia 9, has been mentioned in a recent leak and, given the OEM’s reputation, it might have the best combination of hardware and software this year.

Not Android: Google just invested in a new mobile OS

Google invested in a mobile OS called KaiOS this month, and it's no secret that it's not based in Android. What we're looking at here is a company that makes an operating system that's focused on feature phones - but feature phones that are smart.

But perhaps because of the "traffic" the new smartphone is producing, HMD Global's Juho Sarvikas is putting the Nokia X6's fate in the hands of the people.
