HMD Global started pre-bookings for Nokia 5 in India from today. The Finnish company has been looking to re-establish the household name in the Indian smartphone market, radicalised since its last time here. Working in this direction, the company launched Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 in India last month.
Priced at Rs 12,899, Nokia 5 will be available exclusively through offline retail stores, like company's comeback feature phone, Nokia 3310. Sold offline earlier, Nokia 3 is now available on e-commerce website Croma. Similarly, Nokia 6, the premium smartphone in the lot, will be sold on Amazon India. Pre-booking for Nokia 6 will begin on July 14, and it will be available in Indian markets for Rs 14,999.
HMD Global has not disclosed when the handset will be available for buyers in open market. Like purchasing the phone, you will have to pre-order their units offline too. For pre-ordering your Nokia 5 handset, you will have to find the nearest dealer accepting them for the smartphone.
Like the other smartphones in the line-up, HMD Global might consider putting up Nokia 5 for sale on one or more online shopping websites.
