HMD to unveil Nokia X6 on Friday, a mid-range model with a 19:9 screen

Peter, 24 April 2018

So, the Nokia X will not be a flagship – and won’t be called the Nokia X. The 10W charger gave us a clue but now pricing information has surfaced for the device. There will be two models costing CNY 1,600 and CNY 1,800. That’s $250/210€ and $285/€235 respectively.

What HMD is planning on launching is reportedly the Nokia X6 (no, not this one) and it will sit between the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 7 plus.

The Nokia X6 is said to have a 5.8-inch “bezel-free display” with a 19:9 aspect ratio (the 7 plus has an 18:9 screen). There will be a vertical dual camera on the back with Carl Zeiss lens.

The two versions will differ by chipset and RAM. The top model will use Snapdragon 636 and will come with 6 GB of RAM, the more affordable model will use Helio P60 with 4 GB of RAM. Both will launch with Android 8.0 Oreo.

PS. looking at the chipset selection, the P60 has four Cortex-A73 cores + four A53 ones. The Snapdragon uses Kryo 260 CPU, which are semi-custom versions of the A53. The GPU fight might go in favor of the Adreno, though. Here are some quick benchmarks comparing the Redmi Note 5 Pro (S636) and the Oppo R15 (P60).

They still aren't doing it right! The name alone is one thing the design being the same (resurrected) is another but this phone was a music phone so put in some proper music features for example an AMP/DAC by Denon or B&O a mini subwoofer on the ...

Ok, cheers was lost their as I was talking of the 835 which is still current but thanks.
