This affordable handset made by HMD Global is expected to hit top mobile retail stores in India at a recommended price equivalent with less than US$200. At launch, only the matte black color option would be available, with three more to follow shortly.

Nokia 5 has been around for a while since HMD Global unveiled it at the Mobile World Congress 2017 trade show that took place at the end of February. Next to the Nokia 3 and Nokia 6, this handset was introduced in India back in June. However, the Nokia 5 is the last one to hit the local market, since it is scheduled to reach the stores starting tomorrow.

HMD Global's Nokia 5 has the following highlights:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC with Adreno 505 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5.2-inch with 1,280X720 pixels, 500 nits brightness, and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass protection
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 13 MP back
  • Operating system: Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • Dimensions: 5.89 X 2.85 X 0.32 inches
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh
  • Colors: Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue, Copper

In the beginning, the only color choice available will be black. The recommended price is INR₹12,499 - around US$195. Just like its cheaper sibling, the Nokia 5 is only going for sale in offline stores.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
