HMD Global has launched the Nokia X5, a cut-price Android phone that apes the look of the iPhone X.
Before we get into the specs, let’s get a couple of things out of the way – the X5 has only been launched in China, but may get a worldwide release. If it does come to other markets, rumors suggest it’ll sport a different name – the Nokia 5.1 Plus.
Update: We’ve spoken to HMD Global, which has told us ‘At this time, there are no plans to bring the X5 to other markets’. That doesn’t mean it’s not coming, as there’s every chance it’ll have a different name and slightly different specs.
The price of the Nokia 5X is just CNY 999, around $149 / £110 / AU$200, but we’d expect it to be a little higher when the currency conversions kick in.
So what do you get for that money? Well, for a budget phone it’s pretty good: 2.5D curved glass frames the phone, which sports a 5.86-inch display, which has the longer 19:9 screen ratio.
