The Nokia X5 (TA-1109) is finally revealed at a launch event in China. The phone matches with essentially everything that we saw in the leaks. The phone features the infamous “Notch” and comes packed with the Helio P60 processor which looks like nothing less than a dream.
Much like the Nokia X6, the Nokia X5 also features a dual-glass manufacturing. Similar dual cameras sit on the back. The notch on the front of the display is definitely wider, leaving very less room for the notification icons.
