It was earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress that Nokia revealed a bunch of low to mid-range Android-powered handsets – marking their reentry into the mobile phones space the company once dominated. Apart from the Nokia 6 (that was initially launched in China), the company unveiled the new Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 at the event. While these devices are primarily targeted at emerging and developing markets, looks like Nokia might bring these phones to the United States as well.
The Nokia 5, for example, was recently spotted on the website of FCC (Federal Communications Commission) where it has managed to pass the FCC certification which is mandatory for mobile phones to be sold in the U.S. While the handset did clear FCC, it remains unclear as to when Nokia plans to launch the phone there. The Nokia 5 is expected to go on sale in India, Middle East, Africa, Asian Pacific and Europe by Q2 2017 and is expected to be priced around the $200 mark.
As for specs, the Nokia 5 boasts of a 5.2-inch HD display, an aluminium unibody. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset and comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It also supports memory expansion using microSD cards. For imaging, the handset uses a13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
We will keep you posted when we get more information about the Nokia 5 in the next few weeks.
