“The Nokia 5 is a budget offering from the brand that features a 5.2-inch HD display, Snapdragon 430 SoC and 3,000mAh battery”
HMD Global launched the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 (review) and Nokia 6 (review) smartphones in India back in June. Out of the three, the Nokia 3 (first impressions) was the first to go on sale in the country. The Nokia 5 took its own time to arrive but went on sale starting mid-August. Now, the brand has introduced a new variant of the device, which comes with 3GB of RAM as compared to 2GB on the original variant.
To recap on the spec sheet of the handset, Nokia 5 is equipped with a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Nokia has also layered the display with the Corning Glass on top for added protection. The performance of the device is backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC mated to 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage with support for microSD cards up to 128GB. In the imaging department, there is a 13-megapixel primary camera with PDAF, 1.12um, f/2.0 aperture and dual tone flash. Taking the show to the front camera, the Nokia 5 has been equipped with an 8-megapixel autofocus unit with a pixel size of 1.12um and an 84-degree wide-angle lens. The smartphone runs a stock iteration of Android Nougat and is slated to get the Oreo update soon. The device is backed by a 3,000mAh battery.
Commenting on the launch, Ajey Mehta, Vice President India, HMD Global said, “Nokia 5 has already forged a reputation for being a beautifully crafted phone which punches well above its weight. Now we have added more memory so fans can get enhanced performance in the same precision engineered design.”
Available in Matte Black and Tempered Blue, the new variant of Nokia 5 will go on sale exclusive via Flipkart on November 7th.
