The Nokia 5.1 is powered by a Mediatek Helio P18 chipset, 2GB of RAM and is equipped with 16GB of internal storage. It runs Google’s Android One platform, an as-close-to-a-Google-Pixel Android experience as you’re going to get without importing one of Google’s own handsets. The short version? A lot less bloat is involved.
It also has a microSD storage expansion slot, so you’ll have enough space to store your selfies. It features a 5.5in LCD display with a 2160×1080 resolution — which is unusual to find at this price range.
Around the back there’s a (solitary) 16MP camera sensor that features a wide-angle setup. Up front, you also get a wide-angle 8MP selfie camera.
The Nokia 5.1 retails in South Africa for R3,600 (if you’re not getting it on a contract) and you can only get it in black — good thing it’s not only available in bright orange.
