The First Nokia Phone With A Notch Display, Here’s The X6 Not Made By Nokia After All

HMD Global has just announced a brand new Nokia phone bound for China under the X-series moniker. The Nokia X6’s most recognizable feature is a notched 5.8-inch FHD+ display with a 2280-by1080 pixels resolution display accompanied with 19:9 aspect ratio featuring a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer.

Overall, the front of the Nokia 6X will be 95% screen with metal frames that come in Blue, Black, and Silver variants.

Specifications-wise, the newly announced Nokia 6X is powered by a Qualcomm 636 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and available in either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. Under-the-hood, a higher-end model exists with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. But no worry, all models receive microSD card slots and back-mounted fingerprint sensors.

Another feature is the USB-C, the only port on the X6, capable of delivering Quick Charge 3.0 or 5.0 percent charge in 30 minutes. For a camera setup, the company fixed a front-facing 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture (face unlock included). On the back, there’s another f/2.0 16MP sensor, paired with a smaller 5-megapixel monochrome sensor with the F2.2 lens. After all, the cameras have the usual suite of phone AI trickery, like background blur and face recognition.

The makers of Nokia 6X are promising Android P update sometime after launch, so the X6 will debut with the current stable version of Android 8.1 Oreo build.

Now, the notched phone will debut on May 21st in China, starting at 1,299 yuan (almost $204) for the entry-level 4GB / 32GB model. The midrange 4GB + 64GB variant will go for 1,449 yuan (US$236), while the top-tier Nokia 6X (6GB / 64GB) will retail for 1,699 yuan (cost $266).

No availability has been announced outside of China. Stay tuned for more!
