HMD Global is about to launch the Nokia X5 tomorrow, but it seems that we will not have to wait until then to know how it will look. Indeed, as we told you yesterday the new mid-ranger has just appeared in detailed renders showing its full design. The renders have been posted on the known microblogging platform Weibo and they show the aesthetics of the handset in two color variants: Blue and Black. The back side seems to be made of glass, while the frame should be made of aluminum. The upcoming affordable device features a borderless display with a notch and a chin containing the Nokia branding.

The brand is also present on the rear side on which you can also find a dual camera setup with a LED flash. According to the source, Nokia X5 will come with an octa-core Helio P60 chipset by MediaTek, actually the most powerful MediaTek SoC from the latest generation. It rivals with the Snapdragon 660 by Qualcomm with a clock frequency of 2 GHz. If this is to be believed and the price of this phone will be lower than the X6, this device may represent a true best-buy.

Besides this SoC, the handset is tipped to come with a 5.86-inch display which will show images at an HD+ resolution with the IPS technology and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Nokia X5 is expected to sport a dual camera setup with resolutions of 13 and 5 MP, as well as an 8 MP selfie camera on the front side. The battery should come with a 3000 mAh capacity, which should provide a good battery life given the efficient SoC and display. The handset may be launched in China first and then it should arrive in the global market with a different name: Nokia 5.1 Plus. Or at least that is the name appeared in the FCC certification.
