Nokia today announced the Nokia X6 in China featuring a notched screen and a dual-camera setup at its rear. While Nokia has launched plenty of phones for the international market this year, the Nokia X6 is completely different from them in terms of design, specs, and the features it offers.
The Nokia X6 features a 5.8-inch 19:9 aspect ratio notched display with FHD+ resolution which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The bottom chin on the handset houses the Nokia logo, with the fingerprint scanner located at the rear. The back is made of glass and also houses the dual-camera setup.
The X6 is powered by Qualcomm’s 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 chipset, 4/6GB RAM, and 32/64GB of storage. Other specs include a microSD card slot, USB-C connectivity, headphone jack, Wi-Fi n, and Bluetooth. It is powered by a 3,060mAh battery.
The primary 16MP rear camera features a f/2.0 aperture and it is paired with a secondary 5MP monochrome sensor. There’s a 16MP front camera which is also used for face unlocking purposes.
While the Nokia X6 runs a stock flavor of Android Oreo, it does not come with Google’s Play suite of apps and services pre-installed since its launching in China. At the moment, HMD Global-owned Nokia has no plans of launching the Nokia X6 outside of China though, given the interest and company’s previous track record, it is possible that we will see the handset make its international debut within a couple of months.
In China, the Nokia X6 will be available for CNY 1,299 for the 32GB/4GB RAM variant, with the 6GB/64GB storage variant coming in at CNY 1,699.
