On Wednesday, HMD Global will be launching a new Nokia phone with notched display. Rumors surrounding the smartphone have claimed that the handset would be launching as Nokia X. However, other reports have claimed that it could be called Nokia X6. Today, the smartphone has been found listed on Suning.com with “Nokia X6” moniker along with its pricing and some of its key specifications.
According to the below image, the Nokia X6 that has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage is priced at 1,499 Yuan (~$237). The Nokia X6 is the first Nokia branded phone that features a 19:9 aspect ratio supporting notched display. The retailer will begin the reservations on May 15 starting at 15:30 PM (local time) in China. The official sales of the Nokia X6 is slated to begin on May 21. The listing reveals that the handset will be available in Black color. There is no information on the other color variants of the Nokia X6 in this new leak.
With such a pricing, it seems that the Nokia X6 will sit between the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 Plus in China. The 32 GB and 64 GB variants of the Snapdragon 630 powered Nokia 6 (2018) are respectively priced at 1,299 Yuan (~$205) and 1,399 Yuan (~$220). The Nokia 7 that is also driven by Snapdragon 630 has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of RAM. It is available with 1,699 Yuan (~$268) pricing whereas the advanced Nokia 7 Plus that is packed with Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage costs 2,299 Yuan (~$362) in China.
The Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 are both driven by the same chipset whereas the Nokia X6 is speculated to be fueled by the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform. Hence, the it appears that the Finnish firm may discontinue the Nokia 7 since it was launched in October 2017 or make it available with lower pricing than the Nokia X6. There is a possibility that the Nokia X6 may replace the Nokia 7 phone.
According to the TENAA listing of the Nokia X6, it features a 5.8-inch display that supports FHD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. TENAA listing has also revealed that the Nokia X6 may arrive in other RAM variants like 3 GB and 4 GB. It may also come in another internal storage version of 32 GB. It features 16-megapixel dual rear cameras and a front-facing camera of 16-megapixel. The X6 is packed with a 3,000mAh battery.
