Just as we’re to think that the Nokia 9 PureView is finally coming for us and as budget models make their way towards carriers, we might also have a $200 Nokia phone to think about this busy, busy winter.

B&H has put up a US-exclusive listing for the Nokia 5.1 Plus. To note, the phone is listed with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, but it has already been updated to Pie. In fact, the product itself doesn’t look to be available yet — no product images were available as of press time and some of the specs look outdated and misplaced — but it could be here within the next ten business days.

Overall, though, it looks like we’ll be getting the same spec sheet as the rest of the world will — and for a potential price of $199.99, it looks to be quite the treat to grab. Customers can pre-purchase the device and await for stock to ship.

The Nokia 7.1 has been a good seller in the states, at least so HMD Global tells us, so perhaps more of this value sector catering is a good thing.
