Nokia X6: Rumoured Specifications and Features

The Nokia X6 is rumoured to feature an iPhone X-like design i.e. a notch on top of the front panel. The leaked renders of the upcoming smartphone also show a notch. On the contrary, the rear panel of the Nokia X6 is nothing like the iPhone X. Instead, it is like the Nokia 7 Plus with dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor in a circular module. But unlike the Nokia 7 Plus, the back panel on the Nokia X6 has an LED flash next to the camera.

According to a leak that surfaced on a Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, the Nokia X6 will come with a 5.8-inch full-HD+ display bearing 1080×2280 pixels resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The front panel of the phone is almost bezel-less except for small bezels at the bottom that house a Nokia logo. The phone is expected to debut in two variants carrying different SoCs. The first variant will come powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage while the second will house a MediaTek P60 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

Both the variants will sport 12MP+12MP dual rear camera setup with Carl Zeiss lenses and will run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. Concerning battery, rumours suggest that the Nokia X6 might not feature fast charging.

Nokia N Series: Price, Rumoured Specifications

In an unexpected turn of events, HMD Global is also rumoured to be reviving the successful and more than a decade old Nokia N-series. The company is expected to bring out the refreshed N-series lineup on May 2, 2018. Reportedly, the launch event for the new N-series will be held in Sanlitun, Chaoyang District, Beijing.

The refreshed N-series is expected to be aimed at the mid-range segment of the smartphone market. However, just like the Nokia X6, it may also launch with several variants featuring different chipsets, RAM, and storage capacity. Well, this won’t be the first time when HMD Global would be reviving phones from Nokia’s glorious past. Earlier, the company had launched the refreshed variants of the Nokia 3310 and the Nokia 8110 feature phone.

For now, the specs and features of the upcoming Nokia N-series are unknown but we can expect them to be a worthy upgrade. To recall, back in the day, Nokia N-series used to be a rage with their big screen and fast functioning. It would be interesting to see how accurately HMD Global positions the lineup in the market today.
