The glass-coated Nokia X6 is officially introduced

The glass-coated Nokia X6 is officially introduced
Nokia X6 is HMD Global's first smartphone to feature the notch display design. Although the device was showcased last month at a Nokia event in China, it took more than two weeks for the Nokia X6 to go official.

The bad news is Nokia X6 is a China-exclusive for the moment, but there's hope for those waiting for this specific device to go on sale in other countries since HMD almost always brought its China-exclusive devices to other markets after a while.

If you've been following our reports, you probably know everything about the Nokia X6's specs, but here is something that we didn't know. It appears that 95% of Nokia X6's body is covered in glass, while the sides are made of aluminum.

The cheapest version of the Nokia X6, which comes with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, costs just $205. Two Chinese retailers will be selling the Nokia X6 starting May 21, JD and Suning, but pre-orders are already live.

Specs-wise, the Nokia X6 is definitely a mid-range device. The phone is equipped with a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage. However, there will be two other Nokia X6 models up for grabs for those willing to pay more: 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, 6GB RAM and 64GB storage.

Nokia X6 sports a large 5.8-inch display with FHD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The phone's display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The back side features a dual-camera setup (16MP+5MP), which aren't made by Zeiss, while in the front there's a secondary 16-megapixel camera.

The smartphone is powered by a 3,060 mAh battery and has a fingerprint sensor on the back. It also features VoLTE support and comes with Android 8.1 Oreo on board.

Here is hoping the Nokia X6 will make it to other markets sooner rather than later, as this really looks like a killer mid-ranger. The only problem is the price might be considerably higher outside China, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Well the problem is the notch,high price tag outside china compare to nokia 6.1,redmi note 5 pro,zenfone max m1,no NFC and no zeiss optics branding on its duo and front cameras(which both nokia 6.1,7+ has)otherwise it's a good midrange but i think i wil still settle for nokia 6.1 or 7+.

Apple should be proud there's a fan like you who knows Essential should be blamed, and shown all the hatred instead of Apple.

HMD Global should try to release the Nokia X6 (4GB, 32 GB variant) in the above mentioned ~205$ price range as this will be a major deal breaker on the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei which will put Nokia as the best selling all screen glass panelled smartphone along with Android 8.1
