HMD Global is launching the Nokia X6 in China on May 16, as it confirmed earlier. Now the company’s retail partner Suning released a teaser of the device, which is for a photo contest that is conducting ahead of the launch. For the ten contest winners, the retailer will offer a free Nokia X6 unit as the reward. Also, the contest teaser revealed the top three winners would receive additional cash benefit alongside the smartphone. The Nokia X6 has been officially shown in the teaser too. As you can see, the smartphone will have a notch on top like the Apple iPhone X which sports the front-facing camera and the earpiece. It seems like the device will not have any additional hardware related to Facial Recognition.
The Nokia X6′ specifications were already leaked online along with the pricing. The device will sit between the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 Plus in China, which should be around 1699 Yuan (or $250) or slightly high price. The leaked specifications of the smartphone also hint the device will be placed between the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 Plus.
The smartphone will have a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The device will boot Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and rumoured to come in two variants with different processors. The high-end variant with 6GB of RAM will feature the Snapdragon 636 SoC, while the low-end 4GB RAM variant will be powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 SoC. Internal storage of the device could go up to 128GB on the high-end version. The Nokia 6 (2018) comes with the Snapdragon 630 SoC whereas the Nokia 7 Plus ships with Snapdragon 660 SoC.
As you can see in the images, the device rocks a fingerprint scanner at the back, and it will also have dual cameras at the back. It is said that the phone will have dual 12MP cameras at the back, paired with a 5MP front-facing camera. The phone will sport a glass back and comes in two colour options- Black and White.
The Nokia X6 might not launch in India, but the company is yet to make an official confirmation on the same.
