The Nokia 5.1 Plus made its debut in India last month alongside the Nokia 6.1 Plus. However, HMD Global decided to keep the price of the former a secret for some reason, promising to reveal all in September.
Right on cue, HMD Global has announced that the Nokia 5.1 Plus will cost Rs 10999 in India. The phone is currently up for pre-orders via Flipkart and the brand’s site. It’ll go up for sale on October 1. Till then, buyers can take advantage of an Airtel prepaid recharge deal.
Nokia 5.1 Plus Launch Offers
Owners of the Nokia 5.1 Plus will get Rs 1800 as instant cashback and 240GB of free data if they recharge for Rs 199, Rs 249, or Rs 448. Flipkart’s also throwing in a 5% discount for HDFC Bank and RBL Bank credit card EMI transactions. Axis Bank Buzz credit card users get 5% off as well.
The Nokia device offers a compelling mix of specs for its cost. Close rivals like the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro start at Rs 10999 as well and offer FHD+ screens, but they don’t belong to the Android One program like the Nokia 5.1 Plus does. Membership means that the phone will get guaranteed OS updates for at least 2 years and monthly security updates for 3 years.
