The Nokia X will be officially launched next week – on Wednesday, May 16. The upcoming phone was on display at a Nokia event a few weeks ago before the launch date was revealed.
HMD Global has released a new teaser poster for the phone which has more details about the event and also some hints about the device.
The Nokia X will launch in Sanlitun, Beijing and the event will kick off at 2:00 PM local time. Apart from the venue of the event which is the background of the poster, there are also some cartoon images. The containers should be familiar since that was Nokia’s setup for its event a few weeks ago. What you should focus on are the supply drops/air drops littered over the poster.
If you are familiar with games like Fortnite: Battle Royal and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, then the supply drops should be familiar. Some have interpreted their addition to the poster as a hint that the Nokia X will have gaming features.
These won’t be elaborate gaming features but just software enhancements to get the most out of the phone’s processing power and the likes.
The Nokia X will come with a 5.8-inch screen with a notch. It is expected to come in two variants – one with a Snapdragon 636 processor and 6GB of RAM and another with an Helio P60 and 4GB of RAM. Pricing is rumored to start at ¥1599 (~$251).
