Nokia X6 spotted on online retailers website, pricing leaks ahead of May 16 China launch - Android

HMD Global is all set to unveil its latest Nokia X6 smartphone on May 16. The company has sent out invites and we already know how the smartphone looks like and what hardware it packs thanks to official sources and online listings. However, there was no concrete information regarding the price of the device available till now. Ahead of the launch, a screenshot of the smartphone’s listing on Suning, a Chinese retailer website, has been posted on Weibo. It reveals that the 4GB RAM/ 64GB internal storage variant of the Nokia X6 could be priced at CNY1,499 (Rs 16,000 approx). Going by the leaked specifications of the device, it is expected to sit between the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 7 Plus.  The Nokia X6 was officially revealed by the company in an image on Weibo. The smartphone features an iPhone X-like notch on top of its display, which is a bit smaller than the current Apple flagship. It also features an edge-to-edge display with almost no side bezels, however, there is a chin at the bottom on which the Nokia logo is placed. The upcoming device was previously spotted on TENAA and as per the listing, the smartphone comes with the model number TA-1099 and could be launched in Black, Blue, and Silver White colour variants. It was previously rumoured to be priced starting at CNY 1,600 (Rs 16,900 approx).  As per the TENAA listing, the Nokia X6 is powered by an unnamed octa-core processor which is clocked at 1.8GHz and could come with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM options, along with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of internal storage variants. It could feature a 5.8-inch full HD+ TFT display with a taller 19:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1080x2280 pixels. It will most likely be launched running on the latest stock Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.  On the rear, the Nokia X6 is expected to feature a 16MP dual camera setup with Zeiss lenses, however, this was not mentioned on the TENAA website and the Zeiss branding is also missing from the images on TENAA. It’s not known yet what sensor will be used for the front-facing camera. The listing suggests that the device will feature standard connectivity options like Bluetooth, 4G VoLTE, and USB support.  Along with the Nokia X6, it’s rumoured that HMD Global could also launch a revamped Nokia N Series smartphone. The company recently commemorated the launch of its first-ever Nokia N Series smartphone and posted an image of the Nokia N8 via its Weibo account. The device originally released 13 years ago on April 27, 2005. The company has already reintroduced the refreshed Nokia 3310 and more recently, the Nokia 8110 4G.
