HMD Global, the company that has the exclusive license to manufacture Nokia-branded smartphones has announced the launch of Nokia 5 in the Indian market. Unlike the 2GB RAM variant, which is only available offline, the 3GB RAM variant is set to go on sale via Flipkart from 12AM tonight for Rs 13,499. Except for this upgrade, the remaining specifications are intact as the original model. The handset will be made available via retail outlets across India after November 14. If you are fond of the Nokia 8's flagship design, but can not afford it, then this device offers similar tech specifications at a much lower price tag.

Nokia 5 features a 5.2 inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) 2.5D sculpted display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Now increasing the RAM to 3GB from 2GB was an obvious move but it has not been well thought out.

HMD had introduced the mid-range Nokia 5 smartphone along with the Nokia 3 and the Nokia 6 back in June, offering a stock Android experience and the trustworthy Nokia build and design. 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. It also features a 16MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash and 1.0 µm pixel size, an 8MP front-snapper with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12 µm pixel size, and a 3,000mAh battery fast charging.

On the software front, the phone ships with a close to stock Android Nougat operating system and as promised by the company should expect an update to Android Oreo soon enough. Ajay Yadav, the Vice President of Smartphones at Flipkart added, "We are delighted to partner with HMD Global for the new launch of the Nokia 5 exclusively on Flipkart".

Connectivity options include dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and Global Positioning System.
