Due to bad weather conditions that might have caused difficultly for the HMD team in making the launch a big event, it was decided to call off the event. Nokia Phone Weibo account posted the below message on its timeline.

But China will be again be the very first market for Nokia X5, as was the case with Nokia X6 as well. Nokia 5.1 Plus has been recently seen as TA-1109 in China’s CCC, Bluetooth and Tenna certifications.
