After all the rumors and leaks, the Nokia X5 has somewhat taken a shape of a great mid-range phone. After all, it’s from Nokia. Though, the notch might yet again disappoint some of those who have been waiting for this.
The Nokia X5 comes with a pretty large 5.86-inch HD+ display. That’s a 19:9 aspect ratio and 1520 x 720 pixel of resolution. And the 2.5D curved glass and 84% screen-to-body ratio complements the overall look of the phone. The specs are what you see on a normal mid-range phone; MediaTek Helio P60 chipset coupled up with either 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage of 4GB of RAM/ 64GB of internal storage. Either way, both variants are expandable via microSD card slot.
As appealing as it looks from the front, the phone’s back is no slouch either. The glass back hosts some great features of the phone. There’s a dual-camera setup with 13MP f/2.0 lens accompanied by another 5MP one. Selfies are taken care by the 8MP camera with f/2.2 aperture. The front’s a wide-angle camera that supports AI portraits and beauty mode. Alongside the rear camera, there’s also a fingerprint scanner.
Powering these things is a decent 3,060mAh battery and a near to stock Android 8.1 Oreo OS out of the box. And fortunately, the device will be one of the first to receive the Android P update after it hits the market.
As far as pricing is concerned, the Nokia X5 has two different pricing, obviously. The 3GB RAM one will carry a price of CNY 999 ($148), whilst the 4GB will go on sale for CNY 1,399 ($208). And for Nepal, expect the device to hit within a month or two for around NRs. 19,000 for the 3 gigs model.
Nokia also previously launched the X6 model in China.
