Nokia X5, X7, 5.1, 3.1, 2.1: Expected Specifications, Price
As it isn’t confirmed which exact smartphone models HMD global is launching alongside the Nokia X6, it wouldn’t be appropriate to list out a bunch of random specifications without much evidence. However, there have been numerous leaks of unnamed smartphones that do give us a fair insight into what we can expect from the upcoming smartphones.
Quite a few handsets were spotted on a Russian certifications website and another few received Bluetooth 4.2 certification. Another FCC listing provided evidence that there were unnamed smartphones with 18:9 aspect ratio displays and 2900mAh cell. IF this would be the case, ti would be highly likely that the smartphones would be mid-range devices that could feature Snapdragon 600 series processors. Also, if the Nokia X5 and X7 turn out to be legitimate handsets, they could feature notched displays just like the Nokia X6.
As for pricing, the Nokia X5 and X7 can be expected to be priced somewhere in the Rs.10,000 to 15,000 range underneath the expected Nokia 6X’s pricing. The Nokia 5.1 can also be priced somewhere in this range based on its existing counterpart. Similarly, the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 3.1 should be priced under Rs.10,000 if they launch.
