It seems that HMD Global isn’t done releasing new Nokia phones in the first half of 2018. Just less than two weeks after it launched the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 2.1 — successors to the Nokia 5, Nokia 3, and Nokia 2 — renders of a new device called Nokia 5.1 Plus have surfaced online.

The images are courtesy of well-known leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer, popularly known as OnLeaks, and collaborator Tiger Mobiles.

If you look at the images below closely, you’ll notice that the upcoming handset follows in the footsteps of the Nokia X6. As with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-powered smartphone, the Nokia 5.1 Plus also has a notch on its 5.7-inch screen. The cutout is wider on the latter, though. It houses the camera, sensors, and speaker. At the bottom of the front panel is a chin that has the brand’s logo marked on it.

Flip the unit over, and you can say that Nokia 5.1 Plus still takes after the X6. Slightly protruding vertically arranged dual cameras are in the same module as the LED flash. Below them is a fingerprint sensor, and underneath the scanner is another Nokia logo. It seems that the rear is also covered with glass.

It looks like the two have the same buttons on the side, the same USB Type-C port beside a speaker and a microphone at the base, and the same 3.5mm headphone jack and secondary microphone at the upper part — albeit arranged a bit differently. Antenna lines also run across the top and bottom of the devices.

No specs, availability, and price have been divulged. As soon as the Nokia 5.1 Plus is launched, though, know that it will be the ninth Nokia handset for the year.
