Fresh information that surfaced yesterday had revealed that the Nokia X6 could be the new phone that HMD Global may launch on the coming Friday. The handset is expected to arrive with a 5.8-inch display that will offer an aspect ratio of 19:9. Since phones like ASUS ZenFone 5Z, OPPO F7, OPPO R15, OPPO R15 Dream Mirror, Vivo V9, and Vivo X21 that offer 19:9 aspect ratio feature a notched screen like the Apple iPhone X, it is speculated that Nokia X6 could be the first Nokia branded phone with notched screen. Fresh renders of the alleged Nokia X6 sporting a notch have cropped up today to reveal what sort of design it will be arriving with.
The above image shows that the Nokia 6X with notched screen could be the first Nokia phone to offer highest screen-to-body ratio. The notch of the phone seems to be housing a selfie camera, an earpiece and some sensors. The side bezels of the phone appear quite narrow. The slightly thicker bottom bezel seems has the Nokia branding at the bottom-right corner, instead of its usual position of top-right corner.
The Nokia X6 smartphone is expected to slot itself between the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 Plus smartphones that were launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech trade show in February this year. The following image that also shows that the rear side of the X6 resembles the Nokia 7 Plus as it features copper accents, vertically arranged Carl ZEISS branded dual camera setup and a fingerprint reader below it. The LED flash is placed below the dual camera setup on the X6, but it is positioned on the right side of the dual rear cameras of Nokia 7 Plus.
The base model of the Nokia X6 that is rumored to be priced at 1,599 Yuan (~$253) are likely to feature MediaTek Helio P60 SoC and 4 GB of RAM. The higher model of the X6 may include Snapdragon 636 chipset and 6 GB of RAM. This model is expected to be priced at 1,799 Yuan (~$285).
