Less than ten days remain from the official announcement of Nokia X, the first smartphone by HMD Global to feature an iPhone X-like notch in order to minimize bezels. It seems that the handset will initially be an exclusive on the known e-commerce Suning, which has just published a promotional poster of the upcoming device. Thanks to the poster, we can admire the full design of the phone in all its splendor, even though the company has already showcased it in China at the end of April (find the photos here).
Nokia X features a glass back and an aluminum frame, with a circular fingerprint reader on the back and a 19:9 display on the front. There is a notch but there is also a chin which contains the Nokia logo. The device boasts a vertical dual camera setup on the rear side, but it lacks the Carl Zeiss branding and this makes us think that Nokia X will be a cheaper device than Nokia 7 Plus. The device is supposed to come with a 5.8-inch display sporting a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels (IPS LCD). It should be launched in two variants with different prices.
The cheapest one is expected to come with an octa-core Helio P60 processor by MediaTek and 4 GB of RAM, while the expensive one will boast an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset and 6 GB of RAM. The first version is tipped to launch with a price tag of 1599 Yuan in China, which roughly translates into €210 or $250, while the second one should cost 1799 Yuan, that is equivalent to about €237/$283. Nokia X will be officially unveiled by HMD Global on May 16. At the moment, we do not know when the device will stop being a Suning-exclusive, neither when it will be available in the global market.
