As usual, we first take a look at the display. Here, it has a diagonal of 5.2 inches and offers amazing brightness of 500 nits. In addition, the resolution is HD (1280 x 720 pixels) as this provides you with image detail of around 282 ppi. As for the design, Nokia 5 is now an idea more stylish smartphone compared to Nokia 3 because it offers an aluminum unibody construction. In addition, you won’t worry about scratches on the smartphone thanks to 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass.

The battery has a capacity of 3000 mAh, which should provide you with a relatively long battery life between charges. Additionally, the operating system is Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) but an upgrade to Android 8.0 (Oreo) is planned. As far as connectivity options are concerned, you get micro USB (USB 2.0), USB OTG, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1.

2 GB RAM and 13 MP main camera

This time, the mobile processor is developed by Qualcomm and this is Snapdragon 430. The chip features eight cores running at clock speeds of up to 1.4 GHz. In addition, you get 2 GB of RAM and only 16 GB internal storage but if needed, you can use the present microSD slot with support of up to 128GB.

And lastly, we will take a look at the camera specs. The main sensor in Nokia 5 this time is 13MP and it features phase-detection autofocus (PDAF), f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash. Moreover, you can record Full HD (1080 pixels) video at 30fps. The front selfie camera is 8MP and it is again equipped with autofocus and f/2.0 aperture.
