The Nokia X6 was launched in China last month, and it featured a notched screen, an attractive design, a powerful processor for its price, and a dual-camera setup with ZEISS lens. The phone was sold out within 10 seconds during its first sale in China and in a few seconds during its second sale in the country. No wonder, it got consumers around athe world talking. Many Indian consumers were inquiring about its possible launch in the country, but HMD Global did not reveal any information about it. Now, we’re glad to inform you that the company appears to be gearing up to launch the Nokia X6 in India.
Nokia X6: Indian Launch Confirmed
We’ve spotted the support page for the Nokia X6 on the Indian website. The company has also listed its user manual, which mentions that “the smartphone is designed to meet requirements for exposure to radio waves established by the India Department of Telecommunications.”
These are signs enough to assume that the Nokia X6 will eventually reach Indian shores, and soon. If priced right, the smartphone can be a worthy competitor to the ultra-popular Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro (Review).

The phone features a 5.8-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2280 pixels), 435ppi, 19:9 aspect ratio, a notch, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

It’s a dual-SIM smartphone and is compatible with 4G LTE networks. It comes packed with a 3060mAh battery, and is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0 technology for rapid battery charging.

Nokia X6: Price In India?
The Nokia X6 is priced in China at CNY 1,299 (approx. Rs. 13,600) for the variant with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. The variant of the phone with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at CNY 1,499 (approx. Rs. 15,700) in the country. As for the 6GB RAM+64GB storage variant, the Nokia X6 costs CNY 1,699 (approx. Rs. 17,800).
If HMD Global can set the Nokia X6 price in India from somewhere around Rs. 13,499, it would prove to be a really good competitor to the invincible Redmi Note 5 Pro. Other competitors include the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 (Review), Honor 9 Lite (Review), OPPO Realme 1, and the Moto G6.
