HMD Global has launched the mid-range Nokia 5.4 in Europe. The smartphone popped up in several leaks and rumours in the last few weeks, but the launch comes as a surprise as it was expected to launch sometime later, as its predecessor, the Nokia 5.3 was launched in August 2020, around three months ago.
The Nokia 5.4 is priced at 189 Euros (approx Rs 17,000) in the European market and the company has plans to launch the phone in other markets including Asia, North and South America, Africa, and the Middle East. While it’s confirmed that the Nokia 5.4 is will launch in India, there’s no news on when.

There are three storage variants of the phone — 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. It has a punch-hole design with a rear fingerprint sensor and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
The Nokia 5.4 features a 6.39-inch HD+ display with a punch-hole design and thin bezels. The Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 chipset powers the smartphone with either of these RAM and storage combinations - 4GB+64GB, 4GB+128GB and 6GB+64GB.
On the rear, it has a four-camera setup where the primary sensor has 48MP resolution alongside a 5MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro and 2 MP depth sensor.
