The Nokia 5 was one of HMD's first devices after the Nokia rebrand. The device was announced in February at MWC, and was positioned between the mid-range Nokia 6 and budget Nokia 3. The company is set to release the direct successor to the device, with HMD CPO Juho Sarvikas all but confirming it on Twitter. 

"Stay tuned", the HMD executive replied when quizzed about this year's Nokia 5—expected to be the Nokia 5 (2018). It's not exactly comprehensive confirmation but it does allude to the company's plans of releasing such a device.

The Nokia 5 was powered by a Snapdragon 430 and featured a 5.2-inch HD IPS display, with up to 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and a 3000 mAh battery. Considering the specifications sheet of the Nokia 6 (2018)—or Nokia 6.1 outside China—we expect the Nokia 5 (2018) to be powered by an SoC like the Snapdragon 450, while retaining most of its predecessor's memory configurations. It could also be an Android One device.

Meanwhile, HMD is set to unveil the Nokia X6 next week. The X6 will stand between the Nokia 6.1 and the Nokia 7 Plus in the HMD hierarchy.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
