HMD Global has continued to grow its portfolio of Nokia phones with the announcement of the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 smartphones.

The trio will offer the latest Google services such as Google Assistant and provide users with an up-to-date Android experience with Android One for the 5.1 and 3.1 and Android Go for the 2.1.

HMD Global chief product officer Juho Sarvikas said: “We are encouraged by the response that we are getting to our products. It is our constant endeavour to enhance the experience to better suit the everyday needs of our fans.

“With this range, we deliver larger screens, enhanced performance across our range with processor upgrades offering up to 50 per cent higher performance while maintaining the perfect balance with power consumption and stunning designs.”

In terms of camera, the 5.1 comes equipped with a 16MP rear camera with phase detection auto-focus and a wide-angle front camera.
