Earlier this week, Nokia X6, the Finland-based company’s latest smartphone, went on sale in China and was sold out within 10 seconds. Now, today, the smartphone again went on sale and according to the company, this time also, the device went out of stock within seconds.
However, similar to the previous sale, the company has not announced how many units of the Nokia X6 were sold during the flash sale. The next sale is now scheduled on 30th May. Given the phone’s interest in China, there’s a possibility that the global rollout of the smartphone could get delayed.
The Nokia X6 comes in three color options — Black, Blue, and Silver. As of the pricing, the 4GB RAM + 32GB internal storage model is priced at 1,299 Yuan (approximately $204) while the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model costs 1,499 Yuan (approximately $236). The top-end model with 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage will be available for 1,699 Yuan, which roughly converts to $266.
The smartphone comes with a 5.8-inch Full-HD+ display having a screen resolution of 2280 × 1080 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio. There’s a notch on top of the display, similar to that of Apple iPhone X. There’s a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top of the display for protection from minor scratches.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s recently launched Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor. It supports microSD card, which enables users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 256GB.
As for the photography, the device features a dual camera setup, having a 16-megapixel RGB primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary monochrome sensor with f/2.2 aperture. On the front side, there’s a 16-megapixel snapper with f/2.0 aperture and 1.0um pixel size.
HMD Global is touting the presence of artificial intelligence (AI) features for improved photography, such as optimized color, field, and portrait lighting effects, as well as face recognition. It also offers the Bothie feature, which enables users to use both front and rear cameras simultaneously.
While there’s a fingerprint sensor on the back panel, the phone also comes with a Face Unlock feature for added security. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, and USB Type-C.
