The Nokia X5 has been announced! But it's not what you think. Today, Nokia announced the Nokia X5 and C5 models with TD-SCDMA (Chinese 3G). The X5 is midway between the X6 and the X3, and the Nokia C5 model has been updated as well.

The Nokia X5 will also feature mobile navigation (so, presumably, there will be a built-in GPS too) and Fetion IM. It will come in black, white and red some time in the second quarter of 2010. Unfortunately Nokia spared themselves the effort of publishing photos of the device.

The Nokia C5 keeps the stainless steel design of the euro C5 but increases the screen size to 2.4" (QVGA resolution is maintained though). Making the switch to TD-SCDMA has also brought another update - the camera has been bumped up to 5 megapixels (up from 3MP). The C5 will work with MM-Ovi Store and Fetion and it will come with 139 mailbox preloaded.

The Nokia X5 is Nokia's first Symbian phone for TD-SCDMA. It packs a 5MP camera with dual-LED flash, dedicated music keys and a 2.4" QVGA TFT screen. The Nokia X5 will have access to the MM-Ovi store (a joint operation between Nokia and China Mobile) and the China Mobile music store.

The Nokia C5 will be available in silver or black in the third quarter of 2010. Both the Nokia C5 and X5 will be available on China Mobile.

We don't know (but would really like to find out) if the 5MP update will make it to non-China C5 phones (call it the C5-01 or whatever) and when we'll see an outside-of-China Nokia X5.

Nokia C5 5.0 MP does not look that bad, but seriously original C5 looks 1000 times better... what made Nokia change the looks altogether?
