The Nokia X5 (Nokia 5.1 Plus) mid-range smartphone takes it a notch wider

It will not be out of place to assume that Nokia’s new X-series is for phones with a notched display. The Nokia X6 has one, and now, the Nokia X5, aka Nokia 5.1 Plus, has one too. In this case, the X5 takes it a notch wider.

As you can see from the image, this phone has a wide notch. You know the saying, “If you have got it, flaunt it”. That seems to be what this is about.

On the inside, Nokia X5 has a 5.86-inch display and a dual 13 + 5 megapixel camera at the back. There are variants with 3GB, 4GB and 6GB of RAM, matched with 32GB or 64GB internal storage.
