HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, recently announced the Nokia 5.3. This device is on its way to becoming a solid budget performer given its specs at such a budget price. Let’s go ahead and look into the specs, features, and price of Nokia 5.3 in Nepal.

Nokia 5.3 Overview

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global says that the Nokia 5.3 is unique for the company because it features a lot of firsts for a Nokia smartphone at this price-point. It brings an AI-powered quad-camera, as well as the first Snapdragon 665 in a Nokia device.

Design and Display

Durability never looked so good. The Nokia 5.3 comes with a sleek glass front with a durable composite back that’s designed to honor its Nordic design heritage. It is available in three beautiful finishes – Cyan, Sand, and Charcoal.


The display bezels are thin and the screen has a waterdrop notch that houses the selfie camera. Meanwhile, the back has a circular module for the quad-camera setup. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the back right below the camera module.

Bringing a big screen that transports you to a different world, the Nokia 5.3 lets you enjoy your movies and apps on a larger scale. The huge 6.55-inch screen fits comfortably in your hand as well. This Nokia device lets you immerse yourself in your favorite videos or games.


The Nokia 5.3 is the first Nokia 5 series smartphone to feature an innovative quad-camera setup. However, you shouldn’t get too excited.

The quad-camera setup includes a standard 13MP primary lens, 5MP ultra-wide, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth camera. The Nokia 5.3 also brings AI imaging and smart tools for great shots every time.


Night mode lets you capture pictures in low light. Portrait mode combined with enhanced bokeh effects and a depth sensor helps your subject pop out in portraits.

Upfront, you get a basic 8MP selfie shooter for video calling and selfies.

Hardware and Performance

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is expected to support silky-smooth graphics. Moreover, the company claims that switching between apps is a piece of cake. For storage, the Nokia 5.3 comes with up to 6GB of RAM coupled with a 64GB of storage. The internal storage is expandable, so insufficient memory won’t be a problem.

The Nokia 5.3 just keeps getting better with two years of Android upgrades and three years of monthly security updates. It will also come ready for Android 11 and beyond. Pure Android delivers a software experience with a streamlined interface and no bloatware.

Battery and Extras

Under the hood, the Nokia 5.3 comes with a 4000mAh battery that delivers two-days battery life. Its AI-assisted Adaptive Battery feature helps buyers stream shows and play games without worrying about charging.

Plus, the Google Assistant button comes in handy. Buyers can keep up with their fast-paced life with Google Assistant by asking questions, viewing schedule, and even dimming the lights.
