Nokia mobile teases new phone launch for July 11 , is it the Nokia X5?


HMD Global launched the Nokia X6, its first response to the trendy display notch earlier in May. While the device could be heading to other countries out of China in a few days time, there have been talks of the company announcing its second smartphone with the irregular display notch. There were unconfirmed reports just a while ago that the device in question – the Nokia X5 or the Nokia 5.1 Plus would be unveiled on July 11, and now, the brand has released a teaser that supports that claim.

A teaser seen on Nokia mobile’s official Weibo page suggest the company would be releasing a new smartphone in 3 days time, which coincides with the July 11th date earlier rumored for the Nokia X5 release. The teaser never mentioned any specific product name, but did indicate the new phone would be from the X series,  given the previous report, however, our best guess is that it could be the Nokia X5.

As noted by Nokiamobs, a couple of online retailers like, Sunning and Tmall are also teasing a similar product launch with a hint that suggests the device could go on pre-order/sales soon after it is unveiled.

    I’d rather it be the global version of the x6. The x5 doesn’t interest me much. Looking at picking up the x6 for my sisters
