Though the exact launch date hasn’t yet been revealed, Nokia 5 and 6 are rumored to get launched somewhere at the end of June or early July. As far as the pricing of these phones is concerned, it hasn’t yet been revealed. But analyzing from the way Nokia 3 was priced. The expected pricing of Nokia 5 and 6 in Nepal are Rs. 21,500 and Rs. 26,500 respectively.
