Nokia 5.3 launch in India is imminent as the listing for the phone has gone live on the Nokia India website. The Nokia 5.3 was launched globally on March 20 alongside the Nokia 8.3, Nokia 1.3 and Nokia 5310 (2020). The listing of Nokia 5.3 on the Indian website reveals everything there is to know about the upcoming phone and is confirmed to come in three colours– Cyan, Sand and Charcoal.
Nokia 5.3 seems to be a budget entry from the house of HMD Global as it comes with an HD+ display, quad cameras on the back and runs on stock Android out-of-the-box. Earlier last week, the Nokia 2.4 entry-level smartphone was also leaked and is expected to launch sometime in September. Let’s take a brief look at the specifications and expected pricing of Nokia 5.3.
Nokia 5.3 specifications and expected pricing
Nokia 5.3 features a 6.55-inch HD+ (1600 x 700 pixels) resolution display with a waterdrop notch cutout on the front that gives it a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection against regular wear and tear. It measures 8.5 millimetres in thickness and weighs 185 grams.
The Nokia 5.3 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with an octa-core processor and Adreno 610 GPU. This is paired with 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB storage with an option to further expand it by using microSD card. It runs on stock Android 10 out-of-the-box.
The phone comes with a quad-camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 13MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The rear cameras can record in upto 4K UHD at 30FPS. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera housed within the notch cutout.
There’s a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and the Nokia 5.3 is fitted with a 4,000mAh battery with regular 10W charging speeds. It is priced starting at EUR 189 which roughly translates to around Rs 16,500 by direct conversion, but we expect it to be priced much aggressively on launch in India.
