HMD Global has announced that more Nokia phones would be brought to the Vietnamese market this year, including the first 5G phone in the second quarter.

The new entrants will include both feature phones and smart phones, with the 5G phones being in the high- and mid-priced segments.

The company also unveiled plans to expand its distribution system in the country.

On Wednesday the company launched Nokia 5.4, a mid-range phone.

Available in two colours, polar night and dust, it is priced at VND4.99 million (US$218).

HMD said in the Nokia 5.4, the signature quad camera stamps out shutter lag completely and has been upgraded to 48 megapixels, or 162 times what the first Nokia camera phone (Nokia 7650) had.

Three years of security updates are available.

Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer and vice president for North America, HMD Global, said: “With the Nokia 5.4 we wanted to combine high performance with great value and offer more with this phone. I like to think we set the bar for what mid-range phones should offer, so it’s hugely important to me to design phones that not only perform but are also secure and built to last. Being built to last is about much more than craftsmanship: it is the ongoing maintenance and updates. Whether you’re powering an electric car or a Nokia handset, understanding that software updates are vital to ensuring your tech’s performance is crucial.”

The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chips.
