Nokia Mobile India today officially announced the details about the upcoming launch of their affordable “gaming” smartphone, the Nokia 5.1 Plus. The 5.1 Plus already got a recommended global price of 199 euros, which is still solid considering the device features a Helio P60 SoC and 3GB of RAM, but, as always, the announced price for India is much lower and based on the first reaction from social media – competitive.
