The smartphone sports an anodized Aluminium 6000 series body, this brings out the beauty in this mid-range device. The vertical foundation at the top middle has been expanded further but there’s no second shooter in sight.
The foundation houses the rear camera and dual-LED flash which are far apart from eachother. The fingerprint scanner comes underneath before the Nokia logo. It measures 8.2 mm in thickness and available in Copper, Tempered Blue and Black colors.
The screen on the Nokia 5.1 is absolutely stunning, it dishes out an 18:9 aspect ratio even though the top and bottom bezel are somewhat thick and huge for a ‘bezel-less’ device. The bottom bezel doesn’t sport the physical home button and navigation buttons on its predecessor.
The 5.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is absolutely breathtaking. The screen boasts of 1080 x 2160 pixels in resolution and 439 pixel per inch density. It stretches up to 73.1% screen-to-body ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.
