[Updated] Nokia X6 Goes Official with a Notch and Dual Rear Camera, Price Starts at $208

Nokia X6

At last, the much anticipated Nokia X6 has finally arrived. HMD Global today made the smartphone official in China, revealing all that is needed to be known without leaving a single spec of feature uncovered. As you will soon find out, the new Nokia X6 falls slightly above the Nokia 6 and right below the Nokia 7 in terms of specs and price. It is meant to be a mid-range affordable smartphone.

In case you don't know, this is HMD Global first smartphone to have a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch. It follows the same trend that Huawei is heavily investing on at the moment and I wouldn't be surprised if Huawei see the Nokia X6 as a direct competitor to some of its recent device. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected screen fares well at 5.8-inch in size with Full HD+ resolution.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 636 14nm 64-bit processor with 8-core, running at a speed of 1.8GHz. There are multiple choices available in RAM and storage segment; the basic starts at 4GB RAM/32GB storage, followed by a 4GB RAM/64GB storage model, while the high-end model packed a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

In optics, the Nokia X6 sports dual rear-facing camera in 16MP+5MP configuration, while there is a single camera with 16MP sensor at the front. The usual range of connectivity are on deck, a fingerprint sensor at the back, while the power is drawn from a 3060mAh battery.

Although it runs Android 8.1 Oreo, the company promised to provide Android P upgrade in the future.
