Nokia 5 users are reportedly facing issues with the device's Dolby equaliser and surround sound feature, with some reporting that opening equaliser from an app like Google Play or Spotify leads to a white screen. HMD Global has now confirmed that it has acknowledged the issue and is currently working to fix it. According to XDA developers, HMD Global's Nokia mobile care team has knowledge of the issue and it will be addressed in collaboration with developers of Dolby Surround Sound. Unfortunately, there is no word on availability of the update just yet, but it should happen soon.
Nokia 5 is the second smartphone in HMD Global's Android smartphone lineup, which also includes Nokia 3 and Nokia 6. Nokia 5 is only available in select markets and it is expected to go on sale in India starting mid-August.

The smartphone features a 13MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture lens, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. It also features an 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture lens.
