Nokia X will be the first Nokia phone to embrace the notch
Nokia X, HMD Global’s upcoming X-Series smartphone that has previously been rumored to be called the Nokia X6, is all set for an official unveiling in China on May 16. It’s got a notch on its front and a chin on the bottom with the Nokia logo branded across.
New teasers have leaked from Suning.com that clearly show the notch and design of the smartphone. The poster also reveals a glass and aluminum body and a dual camera setup a the back. The device can also be seen sporting a fingerprint sensor at the back and a Nokia branding at the bottom chin at the front.
Coming to the specifications, Nokia X will reportedly sport a 5.8-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2280 pixels) display with 19:9 aspect ratio and might come in two variants. There will be a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant which is expected to be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 chipset while the other 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant might be powered by the Snapdragon 636 SoC. Other than that, the smartphone is expected to come with a dual rear camera setup featuring a 12-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens.
It also appears that the supply/air drops pictured on the HMD poster are a homage to games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds. This means that the upcoming device will have a few gaming features.
It is expected to debut at CNY 1599 (₹16,800) for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant, and CNY 1799 (₹19,000) for the 6GB RAM/128GB storage version. Right now it is still unclear whether the device will be coming to India in the next few months.
HMD Global has already revived legacy phones like the 3310 and 8110, now it will be bringing back the X-series. Back in 2014, X-series were the first phones to run on Android, all other devices under the Nokia branding were Lumia phones running Windows Phone. Just like the previous lineup, the Nokia X will be a midranger.
