The home of Nokia phones, HMD Global, can today announce that the Nokia 5.4 is available to buy in Ireland from Three and Harvey Norman starting at €159. The 5.4 pushes the boundaries of what is possible at this level – featuring a 48MP Quad Camera with advanced recording capabilities and cinematic effects, two-day battery life and supported by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 Mobile Platform, it offers fantastic value for money.

The new handset from the European smartphone player is designed to help people manage their increasingly busy lives while catering to the growing side hustle trend, which sees people around the world turning their passions into cash, by simply using their phone.

Championing speed and performance at amazing value, the Nokia 5.4 is the perfect partner. The signature quad camera stamps out shutter lag completely and has been upgraded to 48 megapixels – that’s 160 times better than the first Nokia camera phone (the Nokia 7650). This means you’ll never miss a moment – whether your capturing your passion project or precious family moments.

Treasured videos will look richer than ever with professional colour grading for a cinematic feel to your home and work movies. As for that all-important performance, the Nokia 5.4 promises a faster and smoother experience. In fact, it has enough juice to power you through 42 commutes (mean global commute is 67 minutes) and still has battery left over to check in with the kids and your email.

Committed to offering the latest security patch updates and Android upgrades, Nokia smartphones are beautifully designed inside and out. With three years of monthly security updates covered, people are safe for the time it takes a newborn to start walking, talking, speaking and telling their own stories. Bringing peace of mind to consumers, Nokia smartphones are number one in the 2020 brand trust rankings, raising the industry benchmark for upgrading more affordable devices.

Lisa Higgins, UK Marketing Lead and Country Manager for Ireland:

“Today marks an exciting day for the Nokia 5 series. The Nokia 5.4 has been designed to cater to consumers’ ever evolving lifestyles and is a timely addition to our smartphone portfolio. The recent rise of the side hustle trend has been a telling reflection of the difficult times faced by many consumers. We needed to do more than combine the fantastic 48MP camera and film capabilities with along battery life. So we added reliability with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 Mobile Platform, 3 years of safety updates and 2 years of software upgrades. The resulting Nokia 5.4  is a smartphone that perfectly supplements the lives of those who thrive on more than a regular 9-5.”  

Your Nokia 5.4 has: 

 

  • 4000mAh battery – enough juice to handle 42 commutes (mean global commute is 67 minutes) with power to spare to check-in with the kids
  • 3 years of monthly security updates – the same time it takes for a child to walk, talk, learn to speak and tell their own stories
  • Tough polycarbonate body – strong enough to withstand the weight of a 10-year-old child (average global weight is 70.5lb)
  • 48MP camera – 160 times more detail than the first ever Nokia camera phone (Nokia 7650)
  • 0 shutter lag – 100% chance of capturing your child’s first cartwheel on camera
  • 60FPS – action captured will be nearly 3 times smoother than footage from standard 24fps cinema industry cameras

 Capture moments like the pros  

The impressive combo of a 48MP quad camera and 16MP front camera allow you to take stunning photos and videos. Capturing incredible detail at any time and in any place has never been easier – be it in the light, dark, at home or on the move. The main camera’s ultra-wide lens takes in the bigger picture and is perfect for expansive landscape shots. Meanwhile, the depth and macro cameras will get those portraits and close-up snaps just right. Shutter lag is so often the ruin of that on-the-move, once in a lifetime shot – for the Nokia 5.4, this has been reduced to zero, meaning you won’t miss that never-again moment.

When shooting content, we’ve emulated the experts for our ‘Cinema’ mode. This function captures 24fps (the film industry standard) and allows users to shoot content in 21:9 cinematic format. Once finished, the professional colour grading options can add a Hollywood-like feel to your memories. To get smoother motion shots, simply dial it up to 60fps video recording – that’s nearly three times the film industry standard. Whether you’re filming your kid’s newly mastered skateboard trick or your dog’s fetch skills,, the high frame rate will capture every move. Combined with image stabilisation, OZO spatial audio and wind noise cancellation for videos, the Nokia 5.4 is perfectly suited for today’s busy lifestyles.

Thanks to superior build quality, the Nokia 5.4 looks just as good on the outside as it does on the inside. All Nokia handsets undergo rigorous testing to give you a phone that’s built to last and tough enough to withstand the weight of a 10 year old child. Featuring a durable rear cover, the eye-catching design is also a nod to its Nordic heritage. Available in stunning living colours (Polar Night and Dusk), the Nokia 5.4 gives you a captivating look that’s hard to resist.
