HMD Global first announced the Nokia 5 towards the beginning of the year, alongside the Nokia 3. It would take a few months, but it would finally make its way to India, going on sale in July. While the original handset offered 2GB RAM, it looks like a new model will be introduced, one that offers a small RAM bump.
According to Ajey Mehta, who is the Vice President of HMD Global India,
"Nokia 5 has already forged a reputation for being a beautifully crafted phone which punches well above its weight. Now we have added more memory so fans can get enhanced performance in the same precision engineered design."
As a refresher, the Nokia 5 offers:
- 5.2-inch 720 display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage with microSD expansion
- 13MP camera with 8MP front-facing camera
- 3,000mAh battery
- Android Nougat
The new model of the Nokia 5 will be priced at ₹13,499 which is around $209 USD. It will be offered in two color variants, Matte Black and Tempered Blue, and will be available through Flipkart.com starting on November 7.
