The Nokia 5 will be available across top mobile retail stores in the country starting tomorrow at Rs. 12,499. The Nokia 5 is available in four distinct colours – Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper. At sales start, consumers will be able to buy Nokia 5 in Matte Black. Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper will be available in the coming weeks. The Nokia 5 is already up for pre-registrations in the offline market.

The Nokia 5 has been precision engineered out of a single block of 6000 series aluminium to create a perfect pillowed body that flows seamlessly into the laminated 5.2-inch IPS HD display with sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass. The device is also known as a mini version of the Nokia 6 because it sports similar design.

The smartphone comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, clubbed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable with a microSD card. The highlight of the Nokia 5 and other Nokia smartphones is they come laden with stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Recently, HMD also released the August security patch update to both Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

Nokia has added a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and dual-LED flash. The phone comes with an 8MP front-facing camera. The device is backed by a 3000mAh battery, which also has fast charging support.

“As a result of the sophistication in smartphone functionality and services, we spend more time than ever before on our phones. People today want something that fits in the palm of their hands, and they want something that will go the distance. Nokia 5 is the ultimate pocketable phone at 5.2 inches with a unique design,” says Mr Ajey Mehta, Vice President- India, HMD Global.
