HMD will probably release the Nokia X5 outside of China, but with the name Nokia 5.1 Plus. That is what the chief product officer of HMD Global clearly hints at in a reaction to Twitter. The device would be the second with a notch at the top of the screen.
Last week he was announced in China with midrange specifications. First we see a 5.86-inch LCD screen with 720×1520 pixels for a 19: 9 ratio. This is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 that is rounded at the edges. Internally we find a mediaTek P60-soc with four Cortex A73 cores at 2 GHz and four A53 cores at 2 GHz. 3 or 4 GB ram is connected to this with 32 or 64 GB e-mmc 5.1 storage. This can be expanded with a microsd card at the expense of the second SIM card.
On the back we see a 13 megapixel f / 2 camera module with phase detection autofocus points on the sensor. A smaller 5 MP camera was added to see depth. An 8 megapixel camera with a wide angle of 80.4 degrees is placed at the front. On the bottom of the device is a USB type-c-port with which the 3060 mAh battery can be charged.
The countries in which he will enter the market is not known. The price will probably be slightly higher than that of the normal Nokia 5.1. This costs 199 euros at introduction.
What is custom ROM?
ROM is short for Read-Only Memory. It has many versions just like Windows OS does; no matter it is stock ROMs from companies, or custom ROM from third party. This new custom ROM can bring you the latest version of Android before your manufacturer. Anyhow, flashing a new ROM means installing a new operating system to your Android.

Note: If there is more than one download option, that likely means that you need to download and install the Bug Fix Update for your smartphone or tablet device before you can actually update to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Step 1:Before you go trying to update your device, you should check which version of Android you are running. You might already be on the latest version. It's easy to check so follow this guide up to step four. This screen will have a section called 'Android version'. If it doesn't, click 'Software information' to find out.
Step 2:Scroll down the Settings menu and click on 'About Phone' or 'About Tablet'. If you have a tabbed settings menu then this will appear in the 'general' section.
Refer to Android developer page to choose which version of Android your phone or tablet is running. I.e, 4.0.4 corresponds to Ice Cream Sandwich, an old version of Android that was released in 2013.
Step 3:Note: Your phone or tablet may require a Wi-Fi connection to search for an update. We suggest you to download the software Droid Over Wi-Fi because the file size can be large.
Choose and click the "Software Update" option. Next it will search available update for your phone or tablet. If update is available, you will be asked if you want to install it. Select "yes" and it will install the new operating system in your device. If you want to install it later, you can download the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow file first.
