Unveiled alongside the Nokia 6.1 Plus earlier in August, the Nokia 5.1 Plus neither had a price tag nor a release date for India until last week. It has been priced reasonably at Rs. 10,999 and is scheduled to go on sale for the first time on Flipkart today, as well as Nokia’s own online store, at 12 PM.
