Nokia just officially announced the latest smartphone release, the Nokia 5.4, which promises to be another solid and very affordable option on the market for just € 1
Visually, the Nokia 5.4 is quite similar to its predecessor, the Nokia 5.3, with its fingerprint scanner on the back, dedicated Google Assistant button and a hefty chin with the Nokia logo on it. The phone ships with Android 10, but HMD Global has stated it is ready for Android 11. It also comes with three years of security updates and two years of OS updates.
However, Nokia decided to upgrade the 16MP front-facing camera to a hole punch instead of the 8MP dewdrop, which better matches the phone’s 6.39-inch HD + display. The rear camera has a 48 MP main sensor, a 2 MP macro sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. The ultra-wide lens makes it easy to take a larger photo (think landscape photos), while the depth and macro cameras are perfect for portraits and close-ups. Nokia claims it has no shutter lag and can record 21: 9 video at 24 fps in “Cinema Mode” or at a smoother 60 fps.
The Nokia 5.4 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset, a 4000 mAh battery and gives you a choice of 4 or 64 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal memory (expandable). It supports Face Unlock, has a headphone jack, NFC, FM radio and charges via USB-C.
While the phone is not likely to beat the recent flagships and other premium smartphones on the market today, it does offer specs for its price. It’s great for daily texting, gaming, watching videos, and social media scrolling, and it looks pretty classy. It will start rolling out on the Nokia site on December 18 for just € 189, so stay tuned.
