“Both Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be launch in October. The prices will be revealed in upcoming announcement,” said HMD Global Indonesia country manager Mark Trundle during a launch event in Jakarta on Thursday.

At the global market, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are being offered at 189 ($225) and 299 euros, respectively. The former comes with 5.2-inch display, Snapdragon 430 chipset, octa-core 1.4GHz CPU, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage, 3000 mAh battery and 8 MP and 13 MP front- and back-facing cameras, respectively.
