Nokia 3 and Nokia 5: Latest Android Smartphones


Nokia is back in the game and expanding its range. After a long pause, Nokia made its return to the mainstream mobile market in January with the Nokia 6 in China. And it was a huge success. Now Nokia has now decided to go global with its Android Smartphones.

Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 Review

The Nokia brand is now owned by the Finnish company – HMD global. Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 bring up the middle of its new Android phone lineup. The new devices were announced in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, and we anticipate that the much-loved brand name will attract many.

Let’s see what these Android Smartphones bring to us:

These 2 new phones are set to be released in spring this year, with exact dates (and specs) depending on countries. For example, some markets will get dual-SIM models while others will just have a single SIM card slot. HMD says they’ll be on sale in more than 120 countries from 500 partners, including mobile carriers as well as retailers.

The phones come in four color schemes: black, silver, copper and white or a shade of midnight blue familiar to Nokia fans from classics like the 3310.

According to HMD, the phone is designed with the Scandinavian philosophy of “less is more”. The model 5 is carved from a block of aluminum & the cheaper model 3 has a metal frame and polycarbonate plastic back. They’re both slickly-designed devices with a touch of class.

HMD says it’s focused on displays and cameras that give you a good real-world experience rather than chasing high specs.



The Nokia 5 is a more compact version of the Nokia 6 but with a 5.2in HD IPS display. It has the same flagship design which is also crafted from a single block of 6000-series aluminum.

There’s a 13 Mp camera with autofocus and a dual-tone flash at the rear. It also has an 8 Mp wide-angle selfie camera at the front. Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage. It comes with a microSD support up to 128GB. It supports both 4G connectivity & NFC and has a Micro-USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack. The battery is rated at 3000mAh.

The phone is loaded with pure Android — and nothing else. Nokia will also provide monthly security updates so your phone stays healthy.

The Nokia 5 comes in Tempered Blue, Silver, Matte Black and Copper, and measures (149.7×72.5×8.05) mm.
