The X5-00 was released in China in the second quarter of 2010 as the X6 could not be released in that region. This is due to China is still using the partial-3G TD-SCDMA mobile network for their mobile phones unlike other selected countries which started to use the 3.5G HSDPA mobile network. Although the original version of the X5 is China's alternative version of the original X6, it does not have a large on-board memory and the Comes with Music service.
Later on June 2010, Nokia announced that the X5 will gain a release in countries other than China. Named the X5-01, it features a wider but smaller 2.36-inch screen, better microSDHC support (up to 32 GB SDHC) and will use the HSDPA network mode. It was released on September 2010.
The original X5 is a candybar mobile phone with an alpha-numeric keypad and features a Carl Zeiss 5-megapixel camera equipped with a dual LED flash, 256 MB internal memory and can use up to an 8 GB microSD card while Nokia X5-01 is a slider mobile phone with a QWERTY/QWERTZ keypad (depending on country of sale) and features the same five megapixels camera with the same LED flash, ARM 11 600 MHz processor, 200 MB internal memory and up to 32 GB microSD (2 GB card included with sales package). Only the X5-01 has Wi-Fi and both phone models have Bluetooth connectivity, running the Symbian OS 9.3, Series 60 v3.2 UI.
While the design of the original X5 having mixed reviews despite it being a China-only release, the design of the X5-01 has come under great criticism as being vastly deficient.

The phone comes with a full QWERTY keypad and is available in six colors: Yellow, Green, Purple, Pink, Azure and Graphite Black.
