HMD Global has finally taken the curtains off the long-rumored Nokia X6 at a recent launch event in Beijing. This phone, which aims to offer mid-range specs in a premium-feeling body, would only be available in China initially, but also expected to launch in other markets in the future.
As various leaks have suggested, the X6 is the first Nokia device to get a notched screen. The phone follows the trend for less bezel and more screen, with the 19:9 display measuring 5.8 inches.
Specs and features:
To know more, this is also the first Nokia phone to feature the Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is coupled with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Also, the 4GB version comes with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, while the 6GB model comes with 64GB. The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo and has a 3060mAh battery and USB Type-C connectivity.
In addition, there is also a dual-camera setup on the rear, where the primary camera is a 16MP color sensor, while the second unit is a 5GB mono shooter. This shows that it’s a similar setup to what perceived on phones such as the Huawei P20. The front-facing camera is a16MP with f/2.0 aperture and offers face-unlock capabilities.
Camera software features include AI image enhancements and an HDR photo mode, and Nokia’s ‘bothie’ mode, which captures video from both the front- and rear-facing cameras at the same time, is also a feature.
To know more, going by the press images, the smartphone seems to have a smaller notch compared to the iPhone X, while it’s similar to Apple’s design in having curved edges and sides, with a glossy finish on the back.
Also, one at the rear of the phone, the two vertically stacked cameras is positioned centrally towards the top, with the fingerprint sensor below.
More on the phone confirms its availability in color variants like White, Black, and Blue. Availability outside China is still unknown at the moment, but it might be expected that it would also reach to other markets where Nokia sells its phones. Pricing starts at CNY1,299 for the 4GB/32GB version, which converts to a little over $200.
