Expected to launch in China later this week for a price starting around the equivalent of US$150, the upcoming Nokia X5 is powered by a yet-to-be-revealed MediaTek processor and sports a 720p 5.86-inch notched display. This handset will launch with Android 8.1 Oreo onboard and will obviously receive Android P once it becomes available.

The Nokia X5 is apparently ready to bring the notched display in the sub-US$200 area of the market, something that big brands are not bothering with nowadays. The launch of this handset is scheduled for this week but remains to see if HMD Global decides to bring this MediaTek-powered device to other markets as well.

According to the latest leak, the Nokia X5 sports an unknown MediaTek processor, next to up to 6 GB of memory, 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage, an 8 MP selfie shooter, a dual camera setup on the back that combines a 5 MP and a 13 MP sensor, all powered by Android 8.1 Oreo and a 3,000 mAh battery. The notched display is quite generous, but the 5.86-inch diagonal only accommodates 1,520 x 720 pixels.

The Nokia X5 is expected to start at the equivalent of US$150 in China, so the most affordable model should be priced below US$200 in other markets. The problem remains its availability outside China, but we should find out more once it launches there.

The launch event is scheduled to take place tomorrow, so stay tuned for all the details. In the meantime, let us know if you would get the Nokia X5 if it comes to your country for around US$200 (the most affordable model will probably have 4 GB of memory and 32 GB internal storage, we dare to guess).

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.
