Nokia 5 will be finally available across leading mobile retail stores in India at a price of Rs 12499 starting August 15, 2017. The smartphone comes dipped in four distinct colours – Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper. For now, Nokia 5 will be available in Matte Black, but Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper will be made available in the coming weeks. Some of the launch offers include - Vodafone consumers will get 5GB data per month Rs 149 per month for 3 months on their Nokia while buyers will also get Rs 2500 off (Rs 1800 on hotels and Rs700 off on domestic flights) on Makemytrip.com.

Nokia 5 from HMD Global aims to bring to you the perfect fit. The Nokia 5 sports a unibody metal design. The metal build feels solid in hands. Nokia brings back the hope of those sturdy devices, while maintaining an elegant look. The front side has a home button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The rear side has the camera and flash clubbed together in a neat unit, and the antenna-less back ensures a clean texture. \

“As a result of the sophistication in smartphone functionality and services, we spend more time than ever before on our phones. People today want something that fits in the palm of their hands and they want something that will go the distance. Nokia 5 is the ultimate pocketable phone at 5.2 inches with a very unique design,” says Mr. Ajey Mehta, Vice President- India, HMD Global.

HMD Global calls it the perfect fit, and that's probably the reason why the company has gone ahead with a 5.2-inch display. It gets a Corning Gorilla glass atop. It's an HD display, which is disappointing for a device available at this price point. However, for the limited time we used it, the viewing angles seemed fine and the display looked bright.

The Nokia 5 comes with a 13MP rear snapper with auto-focus. The device comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 coupled with 2GB of RAM. It runs Android Nougat, and HMD Global has promised timely updates. The Nokia 5 packs in 16GB storage, but it is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card slot. The device is fuelled by a 3000mAh battery, just like its expensive sibling Nokia 6.
