Besides the all-new Nokia 8.3 5G, which is the company’s first 5G smartphone, the HMD-led Nokia, has also announced a few more devices, including the Nokia 5.3, Nokia 1.3, and the Nokia 5310. While the Nokia 5.3 comes with comparatively better specs than the Nokia 1.3, which is catered towards the entry-level segment and comes with Android Go, the Nokia 5310 is a feature phone that brings back the moniker’s nostalgia. Let’s check out each of these devices in detail.
Starting off with the Nokia 5.3, which falls in the mid-segment (under-200 USD price point), the latest offering from the company comes with an all-glass design, similar to the Nokia 8.3, with Corning’s Glass protection on the front and the back. Towards the front, there is a 6.55-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch for the selfie camera. The display offers a 20:9 aspect ratio with a 1600 x 720 pixels screen resolution. Nokia 5.3 comes in three color options: Charcoal, Cyan, and Sand.
Talking about performance, the phone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor with 3GB / 4GB / 6GB of LPPDDR4x RAM and 64GB / 128GB of e-MMC 5.1 onboard storage (expandable up to 512GB with microSD card).
