The first Nokia-branded smartphones in a very long time, which are offered in the United States through carriers, Nokia 2V and
Nokia 3.1 Plus
are probably meant to test the local market before the Finnish company could bring its flagships in the country.
But before the upcoming Nokia 9 PureView could make its debut in the U.S., another Nokia-branded smartphone will be made available for purchase, the Nokia 5.1 Plus. Better specced than the other two Nokia phones offered by Verizon and Cricket, the Nokia 5.1 Plus is the global version of the Nokia X5, a China-exclusive mid-range handset.
It appears that U.S. retailer B&H will sell the Nokia 5.1 Plus for $200, but the smartphone is expected to hit the shelves in about 7-10 business days. Surprisingly, the phone will offer dual-SIM support, but other than that there aren’t any details about the Nokia 5.1 Plus’ specs configuration.
Nokia 5.1 Plus is available in multiple hardware configurations, not to mention that HMD Global, the company making these Nokia-branded smartphones, launched two enhanced Nokia 5.1 Plus models last week.
It remains to be seen what Nokia 5.1 Plus variant(s) will be available for purchase at B&H, but our bet is that the retailer will go for the 3GB RAM/32GB or 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage models.
