Nokia 5: Where to Pre-book, Price and Key Specs


HMD Global launched three budget-level Nokia smartphones in India last month — the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. The Nokia 5 was launched at Rs 12,899 and will not be available either on Amazon or Flipkart.

Nokia 5 is available for pre-booking today onwards

At the time of the launch event, it was announced that the device will only be available in the offline markets and the pre-bookings for the device were scheduled to start on July 7, 2017.

Android-based Nokia phones were first unveiled by HMD Global — who currently own the license to brand and distribute Nokia phones — at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona earlier this year.

The device will be available in four colours — Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper.

So, if you’re looking to buy the Nokia 5, you’ll need to find the nearest Nokia phone dealer in your area and pre-book and purchase the device there.

Vodafone customers will get 5GB data per month at Rs 149 per month for 3 months on their Nokia 5. Consumers will also get Rs 2500 off (Rs. 1800 on hotels and Rs 700 off on domestic flights) on

Nokia 5 Key Specifications

  • Display: The Nokia 5 comes with a 5.2-inch HD display
  • Processor: It is powered by Snapdragon 430 chipset
  • Memory and Storage: The device features 2GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage
  • Camera: The Nokia 5 sports a 13MP rear and 8MP front camera
  • Battery and OS: It is backed by a 3000mAh battery and runs on Android Nougat.

Nokia re-entering the Indian market with budget-sized devices makes a lot of sense since their first aim here is to rebuild their ‘reliable’ brand image in the country.

The feedback these devices receive will be a yardstick to take forward Nokia’s strategy to make a stronghold in developing nations like India once again.
