Nokia was expected to release the Nokia X/X6 at an event in China yesterday. Instead what we ended up getting was just a preview of the device. The handset officially launches around two weeks later on May 16. HMD Global has kicked off a 7-day event where it teased the Nokia X to onlookers and media.
The Nokia X/X6 hasn’t really managed to evade the rumour mill though even as the company itself has now posted its official renders. As for what’s inside the latest iPhone X lookalike, here’s a quick glance.
Nokia X6 specs
Nokia has equipped the handset with a 5.8-inch inch Full-HD+ (1080x2280p) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. We’re gunning for a Snapdragon 636, and a MediaTek P60 variant, as leaks have suggested. A 4GB/6GB variant and a 64GB/128GB storage variant could end up on shelves after May 16. Also, teasers have confirmed a dual camera on the back. How capable this camera will be only known after launch.
Another new revelation coming out of from Nokia HQ is that the Nokia N8 could be brought back from the dead. The company posted a teaser of the famed old Nokia 8 on Weibo leading us to conclude a sequel is in the pipeline. Well, this isn’t the first time Nokia has planned to cash in on the nostalgia factor. The original Nokia 8 was all the rage when it launched in 2005 and we can’t wait to see what Nokia has in store. Below is the teaser from the official Nokia post.
What only remains to be seen is when this Nokia N8 will actually launch. The company hasn’t hinted at any date so we await further official information regarding this blast from the past.
