After launching Nokia X6 back in May, HMD Global today has officially expanded its X-series family of devices with another new model called Nokia X5. While the new phone might look similar to its older sibling mainly thanks to its 5.8-inch 19:9 notched display, they are actually quite different from one another.
For example, the display on X5 has a lower native resolution of 1520 x 720 (HD+) as compared to X6 which has a full HD+ display. Despite still being covered by glass on both side of the phone, X5’s frame is made from polycarbonate instead of aluminum as per X6.
Powered by MediaTek Helio P60, the X5 also comes with dual camera setup on its rear which features 13MP sensor as well as 5MP depth sensor together with an 8MP f/2.2 camera on its front. Pre-installed with near-stock version of Android Oreo, the phone also features a 3060mAh battery.
Price-wise, the 3GB/32GB version of the phone can be obtained for CNY 999 (about RM 604) while the 4GB/64GB variant goes for CNY 1399 (about RM 845). Available in China this week, HMD Global has yet to reveal the phone’s availability in other market.
