Back in May, Nokia and HMD Global made a series of new Android-based smartphones officially official, including the Nokia 5.1.
Unfortunately, while the announcement confirmed the handset would have a global launch starting sometime in July, no specific markets were revealed. Expectations for a launch in the United States were high, though, especially with a price tag that starts around $220. And now it looks like the smartphone’s coming soon.
As was first reported on Monday by Android Police, the Nokia 5.1 has made the necessary rounds at the Federal Communications Commission on its way to a launch in the United States. The filing has a lot to reveal, including that there are four different models, with two of them outfitted with support for dual SIM cards.
The baseline model will feature 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, and the other variant will boast 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. Here are the major features you can expect:
- 5.5-inch Full HD+ (18:9) display
- 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P18 processor
- 2GB/3GB RAM
- 16GB/32GB storage plus microSD card slot
- 16-megapixel rear camera
- 8-megapixel wide-angle front camera
- 3000mAh battery
- Rear fingerprint scanner
If you have had your eyes set on the Nokia 5.1, it looks like the launch is right around the corner. Hopefully we’ll have an exact date sooner rather than later.
