HMD Global has been teasing the return of Nokia X over a week now, and the company is rumored to launch the Nokia X6 in China today. The Nokia X was the first Nokia smartphone to run on forked Android OS, back when the Finnish giant was acquired by Microsoft, and Lumia devices ran Windows Phone 7 OS, and above. The current Nokia X6 will be exactly when die-hard Nokia fans needed back then. While we have already come across rumored specifications, the newly leaked photos show off the design in full glory.
As we can see in the leaked photos (via GizmoChina), the front panel features an edge-to-edge display, something that has now become common with smartphones. And after the iPhone X, the display ‘notch’ has gained popularity, and the Nokia X6 has also embraced it. The notch houses the earpiece, front camera and proximity sensors.
The back is made from glass and has the vertical dual camera setup placed at the center, and a circular fingerprint sensor below it. The volume rocker and the power button is placed on the right, whereas the charging port is at the bottom, but it is not clear if it is a microUSB or USB Type-C port.

As per the Digi TechQQ report, the smartphone will be offered in two storage variants – with 4GB RAM expected to be priced at RMB 1,599, which is roughly Rs 16,800. The 6GB RAM variant, on the other hand, will likely set you back by RMB 1,799 – roughly Rs 19,000.
Nokia X6 expected specifications, features
An earlier report hints at a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display, running at a resolution of 1080x2280pixels, and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The Nokia X6 could be powered by two different chipsets – one with MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core SoC, and the other with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core SoC, which will mostly be market dependent.
The Nokia X6 is expected to come in two different RAM and storage variants – one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and the other with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. For shutterbugs, a dual camera sesetup with 12-megapixel primary sensor and Carl ZEISS lens is expected. There is no word on the secondary sensor, the front camera and the battery capacity. In the software department, the Nokia X6 is likely to run stock Android 8.1 Oreo OS, just like the other Nokia phones that were launched this year.
