3GB RAM Nokia 5 variant unveiled in India

The Nokia 5 has gotten hold of a new variant in India which boasts of more RAM than the original. The older variant featured 2GB of RAM and the new one gets to play around with 3GB of RAM.

Nokia hasn’t announced why exactly this new model exists, but our guess is that it wants to offer a choice to consumers who might be willing to pay a little extra to get more RAM breathing space. The 2GB Nokia 5 costs Rs 12499 and the new 3GB one gets a Rs 13499 price tag.

It should be noted that Flipkart lists the official rate of the Nokia 5 at Rs 15299 and is in fact offering an 11% discount on that. The online retailer is set to begin selling the smartphone at midnight on November 7. It’ll be the only place the handset is available till 14 November.
