Nokia has recently unveiled its first Android phone of this year, the Nokia 6 which is only available in China for now. For those who were disappointed to hear that, the company is all set to release a range of phones at the Mobile World Congress 2017 and one of these sets is the Nokia 5. Leaks and rumors about these phones are already making rounds online. As usual, let’s start with the Nokia 5 Dubai price first. It’s a mid-range phone that’s expected to cost around AED 1200 when it’s here. To find out more about this upcoming phone including the Nokia 5 release date UAE and specs, continue reading.
From what we have seen in the leaked pictures, the Nokia 5 will be a good looking phone. It looks like an iPhone from the side while the front might remind you of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Like most of the phones nowadays, this one will be packing a 5.2-inch screen showing 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 282ppi of pixel density. One of the disappointing parts here is that the resolution is only 720p which is surprising as most of the phones are switching to minimum full HD. It’s also noteworthy that less resolution can lead to slightly more battery life. It will be interesting to see what the phone has to offer after the Nokia 5 release date UAE.
The camera department of the Nokia 5 is packing a 13-megapixel camera in the back and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It’s too early to talk about the camera performance but the rear camera is expected to be good for a mid-range phone and it will include features like HDR, face detection and panorama. The 5-megapixel one on the front should be good enough for selfies. For storing the captured contents, there is only 16GB built-in storage in the phone. For those who are interested to get a phone with a good camera, there is the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 which are almost in the same pricing range as the Nokia 5 Dubai price.
There are rumors that the Nokia 5 is a stripped down version of the Nokia 6 and the reason behind it is visible. The processor will be the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 but it will be paired with 2GB of RAM. It will show up with the latest operating system Android OS v7.0 Nougat which means no need to wait for an upgrade for a while. Other notable features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB v2.0. We don’t know much about the battery size yet but it won’t include fast battery charging from what we have learned so far. Everything is based on leaks and rumors at this point so do take these with a grain of salt. There is the Asus Zenfone Max 2016 and Lenovo Vibe p1 that you can get right away without waiting for this upcoming phone.
The Nokia 5 will be unveiled at the MWC but its release date is still a mystery. You can start looking for this product if you are satisfied with the Nokia 5 Dubai price after March, 2017.
