- Nokia 5.3 has officially launched in India with a Snapdragon 665 SoC.
- it is a smartphone that has a premium design to it, much like other Nokia smartphones.
- Nokia 5.3 also has four cameras on the back and one for selfies.
Nokia 5.3 is the first smartphone from HMD Global to have launched in India this year. Launched originally back in March, the Nokia 5.3 is a huge upgrade over its predecessor Nokia 5.1 Plus: it has got four cameras at the back, has a big display with a notch, and a design that is very much Nokia at its core. I have been saying for a while that Nokia phones have the beauty that I do not think other smartphones would ever be able to flaunt.
Despite being a budget smartphone, the Nokia 5.3 holds the potential to outdo its pricier counterparts. I will talk all about the Nokia 5.3, its design, and the performance you can expect from it in my upcoming review until then, let us recap what Nokia 5.3 has to offer.
