The Nokia X5, rumoured to have the codename Nokia 5.1 Plus, is scheduled to be officially unveiled at an event in Beijing, China on July 11. The X5 will most likely come as a watered down version of the recently launched Nokia X6 which had a glass body, display notch and dual camera sensors on the rear.

Going by a rumoured specs sheet that appeared on popular phone specifications website, GSMArena, the soon-to-be launched Nokia X5 (or Nokia 5.1 Plus) will have a 5.86-inch HD+ full view display with a display notch.

The July 11 bound X5 is said to be an Android One smartphone and will come out of the box running the latest Android Oreo v8.1 OS.

The device will sport a Helio P60 system-on-chip and have stunning camera setups — Dual 13MP + 5MP shooters on the rear and a single 8MP selfie camera. Like the X6, the Nokia X5 will also be covered in glass on the rear and front and have an aluminum frame.

Battery capacity is pegged at 3,000mAh and price is expected to fall within the $120 to $150 region — which will register the Nokia X5 as a product with great value for money given its (expected) features.
