HMD Global is going to launch a new Nokia smartphone, essentially the Nokia 5.1 Plus in the upcoming week. A teaser featuring this phone was put up by HMD initially, which suggested that the company could be releasing a Gaming smartphone. The tweet was later removed. A teaser page dedicated to the Nokia 5.1 Plus smartphone is now live on Flipkart, revealing a handful of details about the coming device.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus was already unveiled last month, but its official price has since then been kept under wraps.

The phone will be sold through Flipkart exclusively.
