The Nokia 5 is priced at Rs 12,899, and it is available exclusively through offline retail stores. The premium of all, Nokia 6 will be available will be available on Amazon India and it will be available for pre-booking from July 14 in India.
How to Pre-order
HMD Global has yet not revealed the date on which the Nokia 5 smartphone will be available for purchase. But as per reports, it will happen by the end of July. Now since the Nokia 5 is an only offline exclusive deal, you won’t find the device on e-commerce websites like Flipkart or Amazon. So for purchasing, you need to first pre-order the device. And for pre-order, you have to visit the nearest dealer who is taking the pre-orders for Nokia 5. So once you find any retailer shop, you can easily pre-order the device for purchase.
Recently Nokia 3, which was earlier an offline smartphone, was listed online on Croma (an electric store) as well after offline bookings. So may be Nokia 5 also goes Nokia 3 way and might be also sold by Croma online. But as of now, Nokia 5 is not listed on the Croma’s online store. So, we have to wait to see if it actually becomes online in coming days or not.
