The Nokia 5110 (type NSE-1NX, codenamed Santra) is a GSM mobile phone announced on 12 April 1998 and released in the third quarter of that year.

Its primary selling points were long battery life and ease of use, made possible by the Navi-key control scheme and Nokia's (at the time) new Series 20 user interface.[1] Along with the 6110, it was the first Nokia phone to run on the DCT3 platform.

One of the highlights of the 5110 is the easy to change "Xpress-on" covers. By simply pressing the release button of the front cover, they can be easily removed and swapped with a wide variety of covers, including custom aftermarket covers. The 5110 was the first Nokia phone with user-replaceable covers; on earlier models like the 3110, special tools were needed to change faceplates.
