HMD Global is working on yet another mid-range smartphone.

The company has already debuted several budget-friendly devices, including a few this year, such the Nokia 1 and Nokia 7 Plus. Now, it's turning its attention to the Nokia 5.1 Plus, according to notable leaker OnLeaks, which posted renders of the yet-to-be-announced phone over the weekend. The images are based on factory CAD designs and show a metallic rim and what seems to be a glass back.

The display notch is present, too, and if this leak is true, it would mark the second time HMD has used a notch on one of its phones. The Nokia X6, for instance, has a notch, although it is China-only. It's worth noting the notch here looks wider, though. Other aspects we can glean from these renders is a headphone jack atop the device, a vertically stacked dual camera, and a rear fingerprint scanner.

There's nothing about the specs here, but rumour has it the device will share a mix of what the Nokia 5.1 has under the hood as well as the Nokia X6. The Nokia 5.1 offers a MT6755S chipset, 2GB to 3GB of RAM, and 16GB to 32GB of expandable storage, while the Nokia X6 features a Snapdragon 636 chipset, 4GB/6GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of expandable storage, and a 16/5-megapixel dual camera.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
