After many, many leaks concerning its new flagship phone, HMD Global finally announced the new member of their smartphone family, the Nokia X6.

The Phone boasts a 5.8 inch FHD+ (1080 x 2280 pixels) display, a 19:9 aspect ratio and is all protected by the ever trusty Gorilla Glass 3 layer.

It is the first Nokia handset that has a notch at the top of its screen and features a front facing camera and face unlocking capabilities. Of course, there is the standard fingerprint sensor present on the back.

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 and dynamic expression and all sorts of other interesting tricks you can play with.

The X6 is accompanied by the Snapdragon 636 SoC and alongside it, 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage or, alternatively, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

You can expand the storage with a microSD card, if you don’t need your second SIM, thanks to a hybrid slot.

The battery is at 3,060 mAh and it can be charged via a USB-C connector with 3.0 speeds. That means around 50% in some 30 minutes.

The phone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo but it has been promised that it will receive the Android P update as well.

The phone will be up for sale on May 21 in China and the starting price is $204 for the 4GB/32GB variant. The 4GB/64GB will cost $236 and the 6GB/64GB one will be $266 and 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.
