At the MWC 2018, HMD Global launched the Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7 Plus, and Nokia 8 Sirroco smartphones. All these three devices are the successors to Nokia 6, Nokia 7, and Nokia 8 smartphones launched in 2017. While the successor to the last year’s Nokia 2 came in the form of Nokia 1 Android Go smartphone, the company is yet to bring the successor to Nokia 5.
The 2017 Nokia 5 was launched in 2GB and 3GB RAM variants. It is a budget device packed with decent specifications and is priced slightly lesser than the Nokia 6. Today, the company’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas indirectly hinted about the possible launch of the Nokia 5 (2018). As of now, we don’t have any information about this upcoming device, even the official name.
Talking about the last year’s Nokia 5, it was sold via offline and online stores in the country. While the device came with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, it recently received the Android 8.1 Oreo update. It sports a 5.2-inch IPS display with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor.

There is 16GB of internal storage that can be further expandable using a MicroSD card slot. It features 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP front camera for selfies. The Nokia 5 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and offers all the basic connectivity options. With the upcoming Nokia 5 (2018), the company might opt for the 18:9 display.
However, the device could be coming with the metal unibody design and single cameras on the front and rear. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about the upcoming Nokia 5 (2018) smartphone.
