After multiple leaks surrounding the Nokia X6 smartphone, the day has finally arrived for the company to officially announce its smartphone. HMD Global has announced its Nokia X6 smartphone, which is the very first phone of the Nokia X series in China. So, what makes the Nokia X6 so desirable?
The 5.8-inch display follows the recent trend of the iconic notch, made famous by the iPhone X. The 19:9 aspect ratio display has a decent FHD+ resolution of 2280x1080p. Definitely not the sharpest of screens but still pretty good considering the Nokia X6 isn’t exactly geared towards the flagship smartphone market. At the core of the smartphones lies the Snapdragon 636 SoC, an octa-core CPU running at a clock speed of 1.8GHz. Coupled with this is 4GB/6GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage with storage expansion of up to 256GB via microSD card.
The dual-rear camera consists of one 16MP sensor with a 5MP sensor and has support for AI portrait as well as scene recognition. The front selfie shooter consists of a 16MP camera and includes features like AI selfies with background blur, stickers and face unlock. The fingerprint scanner is positioned at the back of the smartphone. Most of the device is covered in glass and held together by a metal frame. The smartphone has a 3060mAh battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0.
