The Nokia X5 was launched in China, marking the second release of a cut-off smartphone from HMD Global. As expected, the new smartphone is more modest in capabilities than its "big brother" Nokia X6 / 6.1 Plus, but it retains the design lines and many of the elements that have celebrated the Nokia smartphone series with Android in the past year
We are talking about a smartphone equipped with a 5.86 "diagonal screen with 19: 9 (1.520 x 720 pixels) HD + resolution with a built-in glass on both sides.
