Nokia launched the highly anticipated Nokia X5 in China on Wednesday. The 5.8-inch phone, which comes with Android Oreo, was sold out within two hours of its launch, according to the company’s Weibo account.
The X5, with its face recognition and intelligent AI features, is priced at ¥999 (approx. Rs. 10186) for the 3GB RAM/32GB ROM. The phone also comes in a 4GB RAM/64 GB ROM version.
Display and camera
The phone is encased in a double-sided glass body with an integrated polycarbonate frame. It is available in three colours - -Extreme Night Black, Glacier White and Baltic Sea Blue. The 5.86 inch phone has a 19:9 HD screen ratio, but it also has a notch at its top, reminiscent of the iPhone X. The Nokia X6 was the first Nokia phone to feature the notch
The display has a resolution of 1520×720 and has a 2.5D glass. The phone also features a 13 megapixel + 5 megapixel dual camera set up in the rear, with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and an LED flash. The front is equipped with an 8 megapixel camera.
The camera has several built-in features like the AI beauty blur -- the application of intelligent 3D blur algorithm -- smart portrait lighting, blurred pictures, application of depth of field among others.
The X5 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset. The 3,060 mAh battery, which is a built-in type, does not support fast charging, according to Tech Radar. It also has the standard 3.5 mm audio jack and the USB Type-C port.
The specs, according to the Nokia website, give you 11 hours of video playback on 4G networks, 27 hours screen time on standby and a call duration of 17.5 hours.
The phone supports screen-off fingerprint payment, which lets users open up apps with their fingerprint even if the screen is off, making “fingerprint payment in the lock screen state more convenient and faster”. The phone also has features like intelligent screen recognition, double-finger long-press on the screen that lets you break down articles and conversations into easy-to-select, copy, and search-for words.
Since the phone comes with the pure Android, it can be upgraded to the not-yet-released Android P.
The company launched the Nokia X6 in China earlier this year and reports say that it could be launched in India somewhere around August or September. The India launch date for the new X5 however, is unclear. Media reports also say that both phones could be marketed as Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus outside China.
