Tomorrow, HMD Global will be launching the Nokia X6 smartphone in China. However, plenty of information of the smartphone have already surfaced before its official announcement. It was recently revealed that the Nokia X6 will be carrying a price tag of 1,499 Yuan (~$235). Today, a couple of press renders of the Nokia X6 have appeared to reveal its design, specs and key features.
The Nokia X6 will be arriving with a notched display design like the iPhone X. The above image shows that it has a slightly thick bottom bezel that features the Nokia branding. The notch of the phone houses a front-facing camera, an earpiece and a proximity sensor. The glass back of the Nokia X6 has a vertical dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner. The below images show some of the key features of the phone.
It shows that the Nokia X6 has a 5.8-inch display that supports FHD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The Snapdragon 636 chipset powers the X6. The dual camera setup includes a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor. The dual rear cameras are equipped with features like AI and HDR.
For shooting selfies, it has a frontal camera of 16-megapixel that comes with intelligent 3D blur and beauty filters. The front-facing camera of the Nokia X6 has been optimized to capture impressive selfie shots in low-light conditions. The handset will come loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo. It seems that it could be yet another Android One phone from the company. For immersive gaming experience, it will provide users with Do Not Disturb mode.
The Nokia X6 is fueled by a 3,060mAh battery that is enabled with support for 18W Quick Charge 3.0 rapid charging. By charging the X6 only for 30 minutes, it can gain 50 percent of battery power.
Starting from 3:30 PM (local time) in China, the reservations of the Nokia X6 have begun on Suning. The actual sales of the smartphone will kick off from May 21. The Nokia X6 phone featuring 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage is priced at 1,499 Yuan (~$235). The handset is also expected to be available in a higher variant featuring 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of inbuilt storage. As of this writing, there is no information available on the pricing of this variant.
The Nokia X6 is expected to be positioned between the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 Plus. The Nokia 7 phone from last year and the Nokia 6 (2018) are powered by the Snapdragon 630 chipset. Hence, it is speculated that the Nokia X6 may replace the Nokia 7 smartphone.
