Nokia 5.3 now available for pre-order in the US
Nokia 5.3 is a relatively new mid-range Android smartphone that HMD Global launched globally back in April. The Finnish company doesn't sell all its smartphones in the United States and certainly doesn't have any partnerships with local carriers yet, but many of their devices can be purchased from major retailers like Amazon, B&H, Best Buy and a few others.

The US version of Nokia 5.3 is only compatible with GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile, so if you favor Sprint or T-Mobile over the other two, know that this phone won't work. It's also worth noting that while HMD launched three Nokia 5.3 models, US customers will be getting the one that comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. There are two other models available in various markets: 3/64GB and 6/64GB.

At the moment, Nokia 5.3 is available for pre-order on Amazon for just $200, and, from what the retailer claims, it will go on sale on June 22. The phone is available in two color options: charcoal and cyan.

As far as the other specs go, Nokia 5.3 is quite decent on paper. It's equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, a massive 6.55-inch IPS HD+ display (Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected), and a quad-camera setup (13MP+5MP+2MP+2MP).

Nokia 5.3 is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery and runs Android 10 right out of the box. In fact, this is an Android One phone, even though it isn't branded like one, so you should receive major updates faster than usual, at least in theory.
