The Nokia X6, which was officially unveiled earlier this month, had gone on sale for the first time in China on May 21. As we reported recently, the smartphone went out of stock in just 10 seconds after the first sale kicked off. Unsurprisingly, the second Nokia X6 flash sale also ended in mere seconds.
Nokia X6: Sold Out in Seconds Once Again
Just like the previous sale, the Nokia X6 was sold out during the second sale in China within seconds of it going on sale. The next Nokia X6 sale in China is set to be held on May 30. Reservations for the sale are now open, and going by the first two sales, we are fairly certain the smartphone will run out stock within seconds in the third sale as well. So far, the Nokia X6 has received over 1 million reservations, making it one of the most popular Nokia-branded Android smartphones launched in China so far.
Nokia X6: Specifications, Features
The mid-range Nokia X6 features a 5.8-inch sized IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio, and a notch on the top. In fact, the Nokia X6 is the first Nokia-branded smartphone with a notch. The smartphone’s notched display is protected by a layer of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. Powering the smartphone is a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, which made its global debut in Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro earlier this year. In terms of memory, the smartphone comes in three configurations in China – 4GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 64GB storage. HMD Global has gone with a Hybrid Dual-SIM slot configuration on the Nokia X6, so memory expansion isn’t going to be very easy for all users.
Moving on to optics, the Nokia X6 features a 16MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the rear with the primary sensor paired with f/2.0 aperture and the secondary sensor paired with an f/2.2 aperture. However, unlike the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6.1 smartphones, the Nokia X6 doesn’t come with ZEISS optics. It also lacks support for 4K video recording. While the Nokia X6 lacks ZEISS optics, it does come with AI-assisted features such as bokeh effects, filters, and more. The front-facing 16MP resolution selfie camera also supports Full HD video capture and is paired with an f/2.0 aperture. Like the other recent Nokia mid-range smartphones, the Nokia X6 offers the Face Unlock feature as well. Additionally, there is a fingerprint sensor placed on the back of the handset.
Connectivity-wise, the mid-range Nokia smartphone supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, 4G VoLTE, and a USB Type-C port. Keeping the lights on is a 3060mAh non-removable battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. Nokia claims it only takes 30 minutes for the battery to be charged up to the 50% mark. When it comes to physical size, the Nokia X6 measures 147.2 x 71 x 8mm and weighs in at 153 grams. The smartphone currently runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box and is confirmed to receive an update to Android P.
Nokia X6: Expected Price in India, Launch
HMD Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas had recently hinted at the possibility of bringing the Nokia X6 to other markets. While it still remains to be officially confirmed by HMD Global, there is a good chance that the company may introduce the Nokia X6 in India and a few other markets later this year.
