Nokia 5 Price, Specs, Features & Full Details

Nokia used to be one of the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturers but it fell behind with the advent of iPhone and Android smartphones. In 2014, Nokia’s Devices and Services division was sold to Microsoft. In 2016, Finnish company HMD Global bought a part of Microsoft’s feature phone business and has a licensing agreement that allows it to make smartphones under the Nokia brand. In June this year, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 Android smartphones were launched in India from the house of HMD Global, the company now selling Nokia branded smartphones. At the time of launch, the company announced that Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 will be offline exclusive smartphones, while the high-end Nokia 6 will be available for registration on Amazon from July 14. With Nokia 3 already out in the markets, the pre-bookings for another offline exclusive smartphone Nokia 5 have begun from Friday, July 7. Having said that, it’s still unclear when it will actually be available to customers.
