There is nothing better than to have your favorite phone modified according to your own preferences. If there was one recommendation that users had for the Nokia 5, released a few months ago in India, was that the model hosted a rather regrettable 2GB RAM. Well, prepare to be amazed, because Nokia has catered to all user needs and has come up with a 3GB RAM variant for the Indian market.
While the previous 2 GB model was priced at 12,499/-, the newly released variant will be priced at a convenient 13,499/-. Affordability and convenience in price is nothing new for HMD Global, who hold the license for Nokia mobile brand in India.
HMD Global made headlines all across the country recently when they launched the Nokia 2. Nokia 2, which is hailed to be the cheapest mobile phone being offered by HMD Global, will be available across stores by mid-November.
Coming back to Nokia 5 and its new variant, the 3GB RAM model of the set will exclusively be available on Flipkart for one week. The phone can be purchased from the online retailer starting Tuesday, November 7.
Moreover, Flipkart is also believed to be offering a Jio-Nokia Data offer on the purchase of the smartphone. The offer promises users 5 GB of additional 4G data on every recharge above Rs.309/-. Interestingly, the offer can be availed a maximum of 10 times from the purchase till August 31, 2018.
Once the exclusive period comes to an end, the Nokia 5 will then be up for grabs on selected retail outlets across the country. According to a notification, the new variant will be available in both Tempered Blue and Matte Black colors.
Besides the enhanced RAM, this new variant of Nokia 5 is extremely similar to the original 2GB model. To better understand the specifications we will remind users of what the original Nokia 5 had under its hood:
Nokia 5 is a dual SIM (Nano) phone that comes with the preinstalled Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The phone has an out of the box version of the OS and promises an upgrade to Android Oreo once the time comes. Nokia 5 sports a 2.5 D curved Gorilla Glass that protects a scrumptious 5.2 inch HD IPS LCD display. The phone has an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon as its processor.
Nokia 5 hosts a 13 megapixel rear camera with exciting additional features. The camera has a conveniently placed 8 megapixel front camera that gives an enhanced selfie experience to users.
If specifications are anything to go by, the new Nokia 5 variant is literally a steal, considering the price it is being offered for.
