Official: Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 & Nokia 2.1
The Nokia brand has been positively reinvented since it’s takeover by HMD Global. And the Finnish phone giants have continued to soar, launching three new devices; the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1.
An upgrade to the popular Nokia 5, the Nokia 5.1 has retained the all-metal design, however now features a FullHD+ Plus display. Indeed, the IPS LCD screen measures in at 5.5-inches diagonally, 0.3-inches larger than its predecessor, whilst simultaneously fitting into a body that is 2mm slimmer. This provides an 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution.
A noticeable screen expansion means that Nokia have moved the fingerprint sensor to the rear of the device, which also houses the improved 16MP camera (an upgrade on the Nokia 5’s 13MP). The camera features Phase detection AF and dual-tone flash, whilst the Selfie camera boasts 8MP and an 84.6degree lens.
The new Nokia device should also provide a more speedy and smoother experience; running the MediaTek Helio P18. HMD claim that this is a 40% faster chipset than the previous quad-core Snapdragon 430.
Nokia have improved screen size across all new devices, with the Nokia 3.1 measuring 5.2-inches; a 0.2-inch increase on it’s predecessor. This provides an 18:9 aspect ratio in comparison to the Nokia 3’s 16:9, however remains HD-only, meaning that you won’t be able to stream content in Full HD.
The rear camera on the 3.1 has been increased by 5MP and measures in at a respectable 13MP. Similarly, the Selfie camera on the front of the phone is 8MP with a 84.6 degree lens.
So too, the chipset has been upgraded, with the MediaTek 6750 chip providing a 50% performance boost on the Nokia 3.
At the bottom of the line, the Nokia 2.1 runs Snapdragon 425. This is a more modest offering, however still provides a 50% improvement on speed and smoothness in comparison to it’s predecessor. Further, a large 4,000mAh battery allows for two-day battery life.
The device has a larger 5.5-inch screen that is flanked by two front facing speakers, whilst an 8MP rear camera offers autofocus, along with a 5MP selfie cam on the front.
