The Nokia X6 has finally gone official, proving all the leaks right by sporting an iPhone X-like notch design. The style is a first for HMD Global, coming in after numerous Android phones copied the same look.
Nokia’s notch lives inside a 5.8-inch FHD+ screen equipped with a 19:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. The cutout houses the 16MP selfie camera, powering the handset’s Face Unlock abilities. There is a narrow bezel left at the bottom to house the Nokia logo, but the overall design is fairly border-free.
The Nokia X6 is priced at the lower end of the mid-range spectrum, starting off with a CNY 1299 (approx $204 or Rs 13835) cost for the 4GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM variant. Rates rise to CNY 1499 (roughly $235 or Rs 15965) for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM version and finally end up at CNY 1699 (about $267 or Rs 18095) for the 6GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM model.
A 16MP + 5MP dual camera combination clicks photos from the rear, enhanced with HDR support and artificial intelligence. The latter takes care of background blur, image learning, and improved color contrast.
