The Nokia X5 aka the Nokia 5.1 Plus has been in the news for a while. It has a 5.86-inch HD+ TFT display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The processor isn’t nailed yet, but it should be a decent mid-range from Qualcomm or MediaTek. As many as three RAM variants have been rumoured – 3GB/4GB/6GB and two storage options 32GB/64GB will be sold.

The Nokia X5 will also feature a dual camera setup like its bigger brother with a 13MP primary sensor. The selfie sensor will be an 8MP shooter as per leaks. The handset is supposed to run on a 3,000mAh battery.
