Nokia Mobile brand licensee HMD Global is reportedly working on the successor of Nokia 5.3, namely the Nokia 5.4 that is said to launch next month if there aren't any "roadblocks." According to a report by NokiaPowerUser citing sources, the new Nokia 5.4 will come 6.4-inch display and up to 128GB storage. The rear camera setup is also said to include four cameras, similar to the Nokia 5.3 that was launched in March this year. At the moment, HMD Global is yet to confirm the development of the smartphone therefore, it is advised taking the information with a pinch of salt.
The report adds that the Nokia 5.4 would come in 4GB + 64GB base storage option along with a 4GB + 128GB variant. The phone is further said to be available in Blue and Purple colour options, though more colour variants might come later. The Nokia 5.4 is tipped to feature a hole-punch design on the front panel instead of a water-drop notch on the Nokia 5.3.
