Just as previously rumored, the Nokia X5 handset will hit the global market as the Nokia 5.1 Plus. Although HMD's Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, confirmed its arrival on Twitter, the details are not public yet, but we expect this to happen soon.

The Nokia X5 is expected to go outside China, and the 5.1 Plus name would not be a surprise. After all, the Nokia X6 is internationally available as the Nokia 6.1 Plus, so the Nokia X5 should follow the same approach.

In a recent Twitter exchange, HMD's Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, replied by saying "Yeah, I don't think we need to do a poll on this" when asked about bringing the Nokia X5 to Sri Lanka and India. Obviously, once the handset gets out of China, most international markets should receive it as well. Sadly, he did not get into any details yet.

The Nokia X5 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 processor, has a generous 5.86-inch HD+ display, 3 GB or 4 GB RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage, a dual camera setup on the back with 13 MP + 5 MP, an 8 MP selfie shooter, USB Type-C, audio jack, a 3,060 mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo on top. Since this is an Android One handset, it will get two years of major updates and three years of security updates.  

These being said, remains to see how quick will arrive the Nokia 5.1 Plus worldwide, but be sure we will keep an eye on the matter and we will let you know as soon as that happens.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
