Nokia 5

Nokia 5

Nokia 5 is literally a downsized Nokia 6 with some compromises:

  • Downsizing display from 5.5-inch 1080p to 5.2-inch 720p IPS LCD.
  • Reducing RAM from 3 GB to 2 GB
  • Reducing internal storage from 32 GB to 16 GB
  • Rear camera comes with 13 MP sensor instead of 16 MP

Other than the above changes, the Nokia 5 build is pretty much similar with the Nokia 6, for example, the metal body build and the curves at the device corners. Nokia 5 goes on sale in Q2 2017 for EURO 189 ~ MYR 889. Available in Blue, Silver, Matte Black and Copper.

Nokia 3

Nokia 3

Nokia 3 is the lowest end model among Nokia’s current Android smartphone lineup. The phone gets a polycarbonate back panel with an aluminium frame. The display is further downsized while retaining the resolution, from 5.2-inch to 5.0-inch.

For the specs, Nokia 3 comes with MediaTek 6737, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage with Micro SD card support. The front and rear camera both get the same detailed 8 MP sensor. Nokia 3 goes on sale in Q2 2017 for EURO 139 ~ MYR 654. Available in Blue, Silver, Black and Copper.
