MD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has continued to rapidly renew its portfolio of Nokia Android smartphones by today announcing the availability of Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 in Ghana.
Offering access to the latest Google services, such as the Google Assistant, the trio of smartphones continues to deliver a pure, secure and up-to-date Android experience with Android One and Android Go, combined with the premium craftsmanship and design expected from a Nokia smartphone and the performance to match.
Joseph Umunakwe, General Manager, HMD Global West, East and Central Africa, says: “We are encouraged by the response that we are getting to our products. Our consumers in Ghana tell us they love their Nokia smartphones on Android. It is our constant endeavour to enhance the experience to better suit the everyday needs of our fans. Every single detail on a Nokia smartphone has been designed with consumers in mind, which is why we are delighted to introduce these refined smartphones that deliver a dramatic step up on performance, continue to drive the most premium design elements to price points accessible to everyone and deliver the class-leading quality that you expect from us”.
Nokia 5.1: A timeless classic refined
Continuing with the classic design of the previous generation, the new Nokia 5.1 is understated, compact and effortlessly stylish. It gets its structural integrity from a single block of 6000 series aluminium, refined through a rigorous 33 stage process of machining, anodising and polishing to give an exquisite satin finish and feel in the hand. The new Nokia 5.1 packs a 0.3-inch bigger display in a 2mm narrower body and precise attention to the finest details like harmonising the rounded edges on the screen bezel with the corners of the phone to offer a compact, pocketable experience. Nokia 5.1 comes with a higher resolution 5.5-inch Full HD+ display in 18:9 aspect ratio, making watching your favourite content – be it browsing the web, watching your favourite shows, sharing funny memes or gaming - a delightful experience.
Coming in Copper, Tempered Blue and Black; with storage/RAM of 2GB/16GB, the Nokia 5.1 is now available to buy from GHS808.
Nokia 3.1: The perfect harmony of materials and performance
Nokia 3 has been the most successful model in the line-up of Nokia smartphones and our biggest franchise to date. The new Nokia 3.1 now forges a rich connection between materials with a stunning design and delivers the performance to match, making it more attractive than ever before. The beautifully curved screen melts into the slim CNC’d aluminium sides with a dual diamond cut to deliver a perfect harmony of materials. Just the right size for single hand use, our most affordable 18:9 smartphone with 5.2-inch HD+ display gives you more content at one glance, while the 2.5D curved display is protected by damage resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass to keep it beautiful for longer.
Coming in Blue/Copper, Black/Chrome and White/Iron; with RAM / storage of 2GB/16GB, the Nokia 3.1 is also now available from GHS617.
Nokia 2.1: The 2-day battery life smartphone gets even better
Serving long-lasting entertainment needs for consumers who are always on the go, Nokia 2.1 comes with a 2-day battery life, a large 5.5-inch HD screen and dual front-facing stereo speakers. The Nokia 2.1’s huge 4,000mAh battery now charges even faster so you can get back up and running even more quickly than before. With its HD display almost 20% bigger than the original, you can enjoy high-definition videos on the go while the dual speakers with bespoke 3D formed stainless steel detail gives you an amazing stereo sound.
Coming in Blue/Copper, Blue/Silver, Grey/Silver, the Nokia 2.1 is available now from GHS454
Pure, secure and up-to-date Android experiences across the range
Together with Nokia 7 plus and Nokia 6.1, Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 3.1 also join the Android One family, delivering an experience designed by Google that is smart, secure and simply amazing. Nokia smartphones with Android One offer more storage and battery life out of the box, as well as the latest AI-powered innovations from Google to help you stay ahead of the game every day. Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 3.1 will receive three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates, as guaranteed in the Android One programme.
This puts them among the most secure phones out there, always up to date with the latest Google services like the Google Assistant and Google Photos with free unlimited high-quality photo storage. Meanwhile, Nokia 2.1 comes with Android Oreo™ (Go edition), designed for smartphones with 1GB RAM or less, giving you a smooth Android experience, more storage out of the box and consuming less data. All three phones are ready for Android P.
Anne Laurenson, Director, Android Partnerships at Google, says: ''People all over the world look for smartphones that fit their needs and Android’s mission has always been to bring the power of computing to everyone. Part of that is ensuring a great experience across the broadest range of devices. It's great to see HMD Global taking a leading role in that mission by launching the Nokia 2.1 running on Android Oreo™ (Go edition), as well as having two phones joining the Android One family. We have worked closely to combine Google’s latest software innovations with HMD Global’s expertise in quality hardware, so the Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 3.1 can bring the smart, secure, and simply amazing Android One experience to everyone."
