The Nokia 5 will be available in Matte Black, Silver, Tempered Blue and Copper. The device will be available across multiple sales channels (offline only) and will run on the Android 7.1.1.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Nokia 5 comes with a 5.2-inch HD panel up front that is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage which is further expandable up to 128GB, Adreno 505 GPU and a non-removable 3000 mAh battery underneath.

The exterior is made out of aluminum which does look quite enticing.
