With specs alike to the 2GB variant, the only notable change is the RAM upgrade. For the first week, the phone will only be available on Flipkart.

Nokia 5 Review


Out of the box, the Nokia 5 runs on Android version 7.1(Nougat), which of course is upgradable to the latest version, version 8.0 (Oreo).

Design & Display

It is a slim and sleek seamless full metal bodied smartphone with rounded edges, which is easy to hold and doesn’t retain fingerprints on its body. It has dimensions of 149.7 x 72.5 x 8.05 mm, weighing in at 160g. It also has a fingerprint sensor embedded in its home button for ease of unlocking and for security.

The Nokia 5 has a 5.2-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) HD 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass display, which is scratch resistant. Capable of displaying 16M colours.

Memory & Performance

The Nokia 5 has an inbuilt 16GB storage which can be expanded using a microSD of up to 128GB, for all your storage purposes.

With a RAM upgrade, the 3GB Nokia 5 will have more tolerance for multi-tasking and should run your high-end processes and games with its 1.4 GHz Octa-core, ARM Cortex-A53  processor faster and smoother now.


Sporting a 13MP camera on the back with dual LED flash, the Nokia 5 is capable of capturing your moments with breathtaking quality day and night, also capable of recording 1080p HD videos. And of course, an 8MP selfie camera, to give you the perfect shots for your Instagram fans.


The Nokia 5 is powered by a non-removable 3000mAh battery, which should be more than sufficient for your multitasking and high-end operations.

Connectivity & Hardware

The Nokia has Bluetooth 4.1 for connectivity and accesses the internet with 4G LTE connections and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n adapter.
