Nokia X5 was released by HDM Global last July in China with a good quality/price ratio and was the second smartphone with notch after the Nokia X6.
Nokia X5 was shipped with pre-installed Android 8.1 Oreo, however, Nokia seems to have started pushing the Android 9 Pie update via OTA for this model.
A user of Nokia X5 shared the screenshot of his device that has just obtained the update of the operating system to Android 9 Pie which shows the many new features brought by the update in China.
On all of them, the new operating system stands out in the presence of the notch on the display of Nokia X5 so that the screen is optimized to allow the system or apps installed to fully exploit the entire available surface.
The update also updates the camera, the app store, the weather client, the theme store, the assistant change, and other apps, plus the changelog highlights that Nokia X5 with Android 9 Pie natively supports text magnification functions, Lockdown lock and forced horizontal screen, in addition to offering better fluidity of the system.
The update also introduces optimized battery management, a new gaming assistant and updated security patches from Google in December 2018. We can expect that the update will soon be released for the global version known as Nokia 5.1 Plus.
