HMD Global-backed Nokia put its mid-ranger Nokia 3 smartphone available for sale a couple of months back. The Finland-based company is now planning on putting one of its other Android series smartphones – the Nokia 5 on sale as well. The company had promised that the device will be made available for purchase, starting mid-August. Staying true to the promise made by the company, the Nokia 5 smartphone will be made available for purchase, starting from 15th of August. Both, Indian Express and GizBot confirmed the above-given news.

Rumored specs and features

Online and offline pre-booking for the mid-ranger Android-powered Nokia 5 began back on July 7th itself. As for the specifications of Nokia 5, the smartphone carries a 5.2-inch display with 720 pixels resolution. The smartphone is further powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 system-on-chip.

Android O launch

The company is also expected to roll out the official Android O update soon. Google has made it several reports for being rumored to be working on launching their latest software operating system.

According to a report published by First Post, the search-giant might officially roll out its Android O update sometime this month – specifically 21st August. It is highly possible that Nokia ends up offering the update right after that.

Meanwhile, Nokia is also working on introducing its high-end flagship smartphone, Nokia 8 and 9.
