Product code: 51960124
With a chassis that’s been created from a single block of precision-milled aluminium, the stylish Nokia 5.1 Smartphone has a battery life of up to 19 hours, a 16MP rear camera, a memory card slot a 3.5” headphone jack and has been designed to fit perfectly in your hand.
Nokia has moved the antenna lines to the top and bottom of the device to create a completely smooth back, while the sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display completes the seamless shape.
The 16-megapixel main camera features auto-scene detection to help capture each and every moment, while the dual-tone flash guarantees colours look natural. Single or group selfies will look sharp thanks to the 8-megapixel camera with wide-angle lens.
Thanks to the Full HD+ 5.5’’ IPS display, along with an 18:9 ratio, your games, pictures, videos and apps will all look sharper and larger.
16GB of storage can fill up quickly - not to worry as the Nokia 5.1 has a handy memory card slot – pop in a memory card that you’ve previously purchased (up to 128GB) and away you go. Additionally, there’s a handy 3.5mm audio jack, so there’s no need to hunt for a headphone adapter – just plug in and get moving.
What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked device, so there’s no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that’s a SIM only deal, contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
Top tip: as this mobile phone is supplied SIM free and unlocked, you have access to SIM only deals – these usually offer far better value for money. (Please search: ‘SIM only deals best price’. Add the price of the smartphone above to the cost of a SIM only deal for 12/24 months – now compare this amount to the same smartphone purchased on a contract for 12/24 months, for eye-opening results.) You also have the option to add a foreign SIM card, so you can use this device overseas for less as well.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
