Well, this didn’t take long: HMD Global officially confirmed that its value-first Nokia 5.4 mid-ranger is on its way to the U.S.

How far do $250 go in the 2021 smartphone market?

In fact, you can already pre-order the Nokia 5.4 from Amazon, priced at $249.99. You can choose between two color options – Dusk and Polar Night. Regardless of your preferred finish, it’s hard to imagine a more efficient way to spend $250 toward a smartphone in 2021. The Nokia 5.4 boasts a 6.39 HD+ LCD panel with a discreet punch-hole camera on the front and a monstrously versatile quad-camera setup on the back. The latter system is capable of putting out 48-megapixel images that should serve you well no matter the lighting conditions. Beneath this full-screen exterior beats the heart of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662, still one of the most popular mid-range chips on the market.

Between support for on-device neural processing, two-day battery life, a promise of three years’ worth of Android security upgrades, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of flash memory, and an extremely aggressive price tag, the Nokia 5.4 is legitimately threatening to top every smartphone value chart from now until summer. Finally, given how HMD’s devices have been running a near-stock version of Android since Microsoft offloaded Nokia Mobile half a decade ago, this smartphone might as well be a homage to the iconic Google Nexus range.
