After many leaks regarding its new flagship phone, HMD Global finally officially announced its newest smartphone: the Nokia X6.
The phone boasts a 5.8 inch FHD+ (1080 x 2280 pixels) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. This is all protected by the trustworthy Gorilla Glass 3 layer. It is also the first Nokia handset that has a notch at the top of its screen and features a front facing camera and face unlocking capabilities.
The back panel holds the dual camera setup, with its standard 16MP unit, f/2.9 aperture and 5MP monochrome sensor with f/2.2 lens. The cameras feature background blur, face recognition, filters, dynamic expression, and more. Of course, there is also a standard fingerprint sensor present on the back.
The X6 is accompanied by the Snapdragon 636 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage or, alternatively, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also has a hybrid slot compatible with a second SIM or a microSD card, the latter used for expandable storage.
The battery capacity is 3,060 mAh and can be charged via a USB-C connector with 3.0 speeds. This means the phone will be charged to around 50% in about 30 minutes.
The phone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, but the company has promised that the X6 will receive the Android P OS update in the future.
The phone will be available on May 21 in China with a $204 starting price for the 4GB/32GB variant. The 4GB/64GB will cost $236 and the 6GB/64GB one will be $266. They will all come in color variants of blue, black, and silver.
At this time, there is no word on the phone’s availability outside China.
