The Nokia 5.3 was launched in South Africa today. The Nokia 5.3 has a 6.55-inch display with a water drop notch and a tiny bit of a chin. This device has HD+ pixel density – that’s not particularly dense. That’s what you might remember as 720p – but a bit more since it’s taller than a standard 720p. This device has a 20:9 aspect ratio – that’s tall.
The good news on the low pixel density on the display is that, combined with a 4000mAh battery, you’re going to have a LOT of battery life. The charging speed isn’t anything special at 5V/2A, but again – that battery is big for this display.
The back-facing cameras aren’t as spectacular as those presented on the Nokia 7.2, but they’re still going to produce some results at least as good, if not far better than those of other devices in this price range. They consist of 13 MP f/1.8 + 2 MP depth sensor + 5 MP ultra-wide + 2 MP Macro on the back, and there’s an 8MP f/2.0 camera up front.
You’ll be able to purchase the Nokia 5.3 in three colours: Cyan Green and Charcoal. The’ll all roll with Android 10, and “up to 3 years of software updates.” We’ll have to investigate a bit more before we’re entirely solid on what “up to” entails.
The Nokia 5.3 is already available on Takealot. This 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage size edition will cost you R4999.
