We may not be certain if the Nokia X will end up being called the Nokia X6, but one thing’s for sure: It will have a cutout at the top of the display a la the Apple iPhone X.
The smartphone will join other Androids that have embraced the notched-screen design. In the Philippines, there’s the OPPO F7, the Vivo V9, the ASUS ZenFone 5 and 5Z, and the Huawei P20, P20 Pro, and P20 Lite.
The Nokia X had been rumored to launch on April 27, but instead, it was just put on display by HMD Global at an event in China. The date to watch for this time is May 16, the same day the OnePlus 6 will debut in China and India. We’re more than a week away from that, but thanks to these video previews, all of us now have an idea how the device looks — if the phone in the clips are for real, of course.
This doesn’t show the Nokia X’s notch, but…
Besides the notch, the Nokia X has a chin, with the brand’s logo imprinted on it. The back seems to be made of glass, and on it is a vertically arranged dual-rear-camera system. Under the cameras is a fingerprint sensor.
The videos don’t confirm the phone’s specs. However, word has it that the Nokia X will come with a 5.8-inch display with a tall, 19:9 aspect ratio. Rumors say the base model — powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 processor with 4GB of RAM — will be priced at ¥1,599 (around P13,006 or $252). The higher-end variant with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chip and 6GB of RAM will supposedly cost ¥1,799 (P14,633 or $283).
We’ll see more than a week from now. In the meantime, let us know what you think of the Nokia X based on what you’ve seen thus far.
