Much has been said about him, but he finally reaches our country. HDM has announced the launch in Spain of the new Nokia 5 . The new Nokia-branded terminal arrives ready to carve out a niche in the more affordable range, perhaps relying too much on nostalgia. A mid-range terminal with a metallic design, a fairly modest technical set and pure Android 7.1.1. The terminal is already available in Spain with a price of around 210 euros.
Much had been rumored about the new HDM terminal and it is finally official. The Nokia 5 arrives in our country as a mid-range terminal with a technical set similar to that of many other lower-mid-range terminals. Perhaps with slightly disappointing characteristics, but we must bear in mind that the terminal will be available at a very reasonable price. Let's see what the new Nokia 5 can offer us .

The Nokia 5 has been designed from a single piece of aluminum . In addition, the company has wanted to eliminate the bands of the antennas to offer a cleaner design.
On the front we see a design very similar to that of most Samsung terminals. The screen is protected with 2.5D glass, so it curves slightly at the edges. In the lower area we have the start button, with an oval shape, and the control buttons on its sides. This is where we will have the fingerprint reader located .
According to HDM, this smartphone is highly resistant to shocks and everyday accidents. The rear is completely smooth and the main camera has been very well integrated into the design . Under the camera we have the Nokia logo, the only thing that stands out from the rest. A very elegant and clean design.
The full dimensions of the Nokia 5 are 149.7 x 72.5 x 8.05 millimeters. The terminal will be available in three colors: black, silver and tempered blue. As you will have seen in the images, the chosen color is limited to the back and sides . The front is always in black.
Perhaps one of the great attractions of the new Nokia 5 is its operating system. HDM has decided to use Android 7.1.1 Nougat in its purest version, without layers of customization .
This will allow us to have system updates much faster. At the same time, we get the latest Android functionality, such as Doze feature to save battery .
By carrying the latest version of Android, the Nokia 5 also has the Google assistant in Spanish . This is perfectly integrated and allows conversations to be fluid and useful for the user.
On the other hand, despite including a modest technical team, HDM has not forgotten about the fingerprint reader . This feature has become almost essential nowadays. The incorporation of authentication through fingerprints providing greater security.
Modest technical set
As we have been commenting, the Nokia 5 does not stand out for its technical set. The first, we have an IPS screen 5.2 inch HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels . This display is protected with sculpted 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass and boasts a brightness of 500 nits.
Inside the Nokia 5 we find an eight-core Snapdragon 430 processor, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM . For storage we will have 16 GB internal, which we can expand by microSD card of up to 128 GB.
As for the photographic set, as the main camera we find a 13 megapixel sensor. This sensor has 1.12 µm pixels, an f / 2.0 aperture, dual-tone flash, and PDAF autofocus system .
For selfies we will have an 8 megapixel sensor, with 1.12 µm pixels, f / 2.0 aperture and a wide angle of 84 degrees .
Lastly, the Nokia 5 has a 3,000 milliamp battery . It is a very interesting capacity for this size and the resolution of the screen. In the absence of testing it thoroughly, it is logical to think that the terminal will have a good autonomy.
Price and availability
As reported by HDM, the Nokia 5 is already available in Spain with a price of around 210 euros .
In short, the Nokia 5 is a mobile with a nice metallic design, fingerprint reader and a technical set that, although it does not stand out, is within the normal range for mobiles in this price range.
