  • The Canvas Infinity will go on sale on September 1 via Amazon India
  • Nokia 5 is already available in India via offline stores

Micromax Canvas Infinity is the newest affordable handset launched in India that aims to make a splash in a segment that has a high turnover rate for devices, considering how quickly companies release smartphones in the sub-Rs. 15,000 price band. The new Micromax Canvas Infinity has a FullVision display that was limited only to the high-end of the price bracket so far, but will soon be up for grabs for Rs. 9,999. Then there’s the Nokia 5, a smartphone that is looking to cash in on its brand name and premium design in the same price bracket. But as a consumer, it indeed becomes confusing when you have to make a buying decision. We help you make that decision with our detailed Micromax Canvas Infinity vs Nokia 5 comparison.

On the other hand, the Nokia 5 price in India is set as Rs. 12,499, Rs. 2,500 more than the Micromax handset’s; it is available only via offline stores, like its sibling Nokia 3. HMD Global – the company behind the Nokia Android phones – is providing 5GB of data at Rs. 149 per month for three recharges, and Rs. 2,500 discount on Makemytrip.com (Rs. 1,800 on hotels, and Rs. 700 on flights).

Micromax Canvas Infinity vs Nokia 5 specifications, features

The highlight of Micromax Canvas Infinity is the 5.7-inch FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 720x1440 pixels resolution. It comes with custom UI based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box, but will get Android 8.0 Oreo update soon, the company says. You get 3GB of RAM, and 32GB inbuilt storage with the handset, with provision to expand storage using microSD cards of up to 128GB. The device also supports gesture-based shortcuts. Keeping everything running is the 1.4GHz octa-core Snapdragon 425 SoC.

Android 8.0 Oreo: Check If Your Phone Is Getting the Update

Though the handset doesn’t feature a dual rear camera setup, it has a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture on the back that provides Bokeh shots.

Nokia 5, on the other hand, doesn’t offer such beefy specifications. Instead, relies on stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat software and its integration with the hardware that the company claims offers a seamless user experience; it is also scheduled to get Android Oreo. As for the Nokia 5 specifications, you get a 5.2-inch HD (720x1280px) display, octa-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 430 SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB in-built storage, and microSD card support (up to 128GB).
