Highlights

  • Nokia 5.4 price has been tipped via listings on Australian retailer websites.
  • The Nokia 5.4 could be priced at either AUD 349 or AUD 371.
  • This is a higher pricing than that of the Nokia 5.3.

Nokia 5.4, the successor to this year's Nokia 5.3, is seemingly coming sooner than expected. The details, including some specifications, and colour variants, of the Nokia 5.4 were recently tipped, giving us an idea of what to expect from the smartphone. Now, ahead of its imminent launch, the Nokia 5.4 has been listed on the website of Australian retailers showing the price. This means that HMD Global is certainly bringing the device to Australia while a wider release of the Nokia 5.4 is also expected.

According to the listings on Australian retailers, Acquire and Aus Shop IT, spotted by Nokia watchdog Nokiamob.net, the Nokia 5.4 will come in a 4GB RAM and a 128GB storage configuration. However, the price of this variant is not the same, at least according to the two listings. Acquire has listed the Nokia 5.4 with a price of AUD 371 (roughly Rs 20,100) while the Aus Shop IT has priced the Nokia 5.4 at AUD 349 (roughly Rs 18,900), which is much less. Both the listings lack any images or render that would have given us an idea of what the Nokia 5.4 looks like.

Nokia 5.4 leaked prices are certainly quite high. The Nokia 5.3 was launched for Rs 13,999 in India (selling for Rs 12,499 right now) while its US price is $219.99. Even if Nokia 5.4 brings better specifications and features, it will certainly not belong to the Rs 20,000 category. HMD Global sells the Nokia 7.2 in India under this price segment and its successor, Nokia 7.3 is allegedly in the pipeline. The Nokia 5.4 prices might be much less than what these retailers have projected via listings. It is possible that these are just placeholders, merely confirming that Nokia 5.4 will arrive soon in Australia.

The report also mentions that the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage version is not likely the base version, in which case we might be looking at either a 3GB RAM and 64GB storage version or even a variant with as low as 2GB of RAM. I am not sure about either but if HMD Global decides to pack 2GB of RAM on the Nokia 5.4, then you can expect it to run on Android 10 (Go edition). This is because Google has mandated that any smartphone featuring 2GB RAM or less needs to run Android Go versions instead of the regular ones. However, a previous report suggested 4GB RAM will be fixed on all variants while the storage capacity might be available in 64GB and 128GB units.

HMD Global is yet to announce anything on the Nokia 5.4.

As for its specifications, the Nokia 5.4 is said to come with a punch-hole display, which is also available on the Nokia 5.3. It will be 6.4-inch in size, according to some leaks, which is slightly smaller than the Nokia 5.3 display, which is 6.55-inch in size. A higher refresh rate, such as 90Hz, is also unlikely to be available on the Nokia 5.4.

Furthermore, the processor that the Nokia 5.4 will pack is also not detailed yet. But it could be better than what the Nokia 5.3 comes running. The current model of the Nokia 5.X series is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. It runs Android 10 under the Android One programme but is upgradeable to Android 11 software as and when HMD Global rolls it out under the roadmap for the next Android firmware version. The fingerprint sensor on the Nokia 5.3 is on the back, which is also what we can see on the Nokia 5.4. It is very less likely for the fingerprint sensor to be displaced to some other portion on the Nokia 5.4.
