Announced alongside a Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 3.1 final month, it looks like a Nokia 5.1 could be prepared to conflict a US market.
As common a ever-reliable FCC acceptance routine is a source. NokiaPowerUser has a details:

A orator for HMD Global pronounced “we don’t criticism on rumors and speculation.”
It appears that HMD Global is sidestepping a heated conflict during a high-end of a smartphone marketplace that tenable is faster and some-more mad quarrel between Samsung’s Galaxy S and Apple’s iPhone handsets than any other segment on a planet. Given a highest-specced handset is now the Nokia 8 Sirocco using a SnapDragon 835, HMD Global would onslaught to compare a large hitters.
During a early smartphone years, Nokia would ubiquitous concentration on a European and Asian markets, with US handsets given to arrive after in a prolongation run and with customized specifications during a ask of carriers. The smartphone code never managed to get a same precedence in North America as in a rest of a world.
Given HMD’s still faith on nostalgia for a Nokia brand when rising a Android-powered handsets, it was distinct that it sidestepped a US market. The FCC acceptance suggests that US accessibility is happening.
I consternation if that means a partnership with a US conduit is forthcoming… nonetheless a 2018 chronicle of a Nokia 6 announced during MWC was tagged as rising in US it would be on sale as an unbarred device approach to consumer. The Nokia 5.1 is most some-more bill focused and that, alongside a use of Google’s AndroidOne customary platform, might have tempted a conduit to come on board.
