The Nokia 5.1 Plus’ launch may just be a few days away according to a new leak out of China. A Baidu tipster claims the Nokia X5 AKA the Nokia 5.1 Plus is going to make its debut on July 11.

It seems the Nokia 5.1 Plus is going to be priced at CNY 799 (roughly $120 or Rs 8293) for its base 32GB variant. The cost goes up to CNY 999 (approx $150 or Rs 10369) for the 64GB option. These are decidedly mid-range rates, so the phone is probably not going to cost a bomb even if the numbers do go higher upon an international release.

Nokia X5 Poster

There’s a poster of the Nokia X5 to go along with the leak, backing up reports that the handset is going to adopt a notched design like the Nokia X6. The leakster also talks about another Nokia phone with a Snapdragon 710 processor which is apparently coming out in Q3 2018.

Nokia Phones Future Roadmap

The device could be a follow-up to the Nokia 7 Plus and hit markets by the end of September, perhaps around the time of the IFA 2018. There’s also another Nokia device in the pipeline which is expected by Q2 of 2018. It may grab a Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The SoC designates it as a flagship smartphone, so it might just be the Nokia 9. The post doesn’t go into details about any of these phones. The Nokia 5.1 Plus is probably going to come out in the open with a 5.86-inch HD+ screen, a 13MP + 5MP rear camera combination, and an 8MP selfie snapper.

Other expected specs include a Snapdragon 600 series/Helio P60 chip, 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of ROM, and a 3000mAh battery. The Nokia 9, on the other hand, may feature a best-in-class photography unit and an under-display fingerprint scanner.
