Nokia 5 is one exciting smartphone that can be said to be an ideal blend of design, looks, and features for a good asking price. Nokia 5 will be sold for the recommended best buy price of Rs 12,899. HMD had earlier announced that Nokia 5 will be available starting mid-August in India without announcing a fixed release date.

But now we have a fixed date for Nokia 5 release in India. As revealed to NPU by a HMD spokesperson, Nokia 5 will be available in retails stores in major cities starting August 15. The Nokia 5 availability is only offline and it will not be sold online officially. However, as we have seen in the case of Nokia 3, big retailers like Croma may sell it online too.

As one can expect, initially it will be not available in smaller centers across India and will be limited to major cities and big retailers. The sales ramp-up may take around one week after which one can expect wider availability of Nokia 5.

Nokia 5 went on pre-booking in India on July 7. HMD is taking “Made in India” route for manufacturing Nokia 3, 5 and 6 in India. This has allowed them to ensure better prices for Nokia Android Phones in price-sensitive Indian market.
