Nokia X6 with dual-lens Zeiss camera rumored to be unveiled on April 27

Nokia X6 with dual-lens Zeiss camera rumored to be unveiled on April 27
It appears that the rumor about a new Nokia X smartphone in the works at HMD Global was pretty accurate, as the Finnish company is gearing up for a major announcement. Chinese media reports HMD plans to reveal a new Nokia-branded smartphone on April 27, and the device will be named Nokia X6. So far, HMD Global has declined to comment on these rumors.

Yes, it will have the same name as the Symbian-powered Nokia X6 that made its debut on the market almost ten years ago, and just like its namesake, it will pack mid-tier specs.

Apparently, there will be two Nokia X6 versions available on the market, based on the chipset inside. One will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, while the other will feature a MediaTek P60 CPU.

One of the phone's selling points will be the dual-camera setup featuring Zeiss engineered lenses. The Nokia X6 is rumored to boast a large 5.8-inch display with 19:9 aspect ratio and either 4GB or 6GB RAM.

The upcoming Nokia X6 is supposed to bridge the gap between the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 Plus, so it will cost just $255 (4GB model) and $285 (6GB model), respectively. However, if the Nokia X6 will be launched outside China, it will probably be priced a little higher.

Need this phone in my country and global market as nokia included everything in their nokia 6 (2018) & 7+ but 6 (2018) is having SD630 which is not close to Sd636 in performance efficiency but only energy efficient and is being price high for 32GB,3 Ram in my country and 7+ is price too high in my country to buy even over nokia 8 which is close to it's price range. SD636 will close the gap between these 2 chips in nokia x6 only if get unveiled this year soon outside china with good cheap price.

Nice try HMD aka fake Nokia. Brand name alone doesn't make you become superior. Although you trying so hard to regain reputation, there's still a lot of real motivation involved. People are smart, they don't fall for this ridiculous trick anymore, they read reviews, watching Youtube channels, and getting info about the best of the world nowadays belongs to Samsung. Nokia fanboys will be pissed, but they also need to wake up from now on. There's no authentic Nokia anymore.

HMD consists of mostly ex Nokia employees, their office is across the street from the Nokia office in Finland as well.

Why are you bitter because of the supposed failings of HMD. It's not like you care whether they fail or succeed. Or, do you?

You must be real dumb! HMD is a company from and based in Finland. Employees are from Nokia and Microsoft. And Nokia never died.........why do people still believe that? They have 102.000 employees!

HMD Global is based in Finland, yes... but it is not a Finnish company. It’s all funded with Taiwanese (Foxconn) and Chinese money. Or are you seriously claiming that a few ex-Nokia employees had the necessary capital to start this whole project?

It is a Finnish company! Just check your facts! Only the phones are made by Foxconn just like the iPhone!

I honestly believe that HMD is a shell company or a holding company if you like and will be bought out by Nokia in the next 3 years or so. Nokia (the original) is still banned from selling smartphones under the Microsoft deal (can't remember how many years) but i believe we will see them in the smartphone market again in a few years time. All this is just a theory and i have no proof, just a gut feeling i have.

I am pretty sure that Nokia will buy HMD.

Only if HMD will somehow manage to become a profitable venture. Most Android manufacturers don’t make money, why would HMD be any different?

No, just like Sharp, they are owned by Foxconn. For some reason it looks like you are struggling to accept this fact but honestly I don't see what's the big deal about it. Finnish brand, now owned by a Taiwanese company, what's wrong with it?

Not ”owned”, but ”used” by a Taiwanese company.

"They have 102.000 employees" source? Wikipedia said HMD have 500+ employees.

Samsung has something like ~2% of the Chinese smartphone market. Even Apple is three to four times bigger.

HMD global has more honest Nokia ex employees than the Microsoft when they are ruining Nokia's brand name. Btw Samsung sucks in budget and midrange segment. Samsung launch the most sh**tiest phones in budget and midrange segment. They only has good quality flagships but there lower offerings are worst. On the other hand, Nokia provide a good build and well balanced phone.

19:9 aspect ratio? Why? What's the point if the phone doesn't have a notch? Oh well...

That's probably a typo from PA. Their articles are full of them nowadays.

It's not a typo. Other sites have also reported a 19:9 aspect ratio.

There is a notch, they just forgot to add it in the article.

It might have a notch, that's why. Or a typo. Either one is likely ;-)

There is no gap between the Nokia 6.1 and 7 plus. Chinese market already has Nokia 7.

Nokia 6 =SD 430 < Nokia 7 =SD 630 =Nokia 6 (2018) =SD 630 < Nokia 6X =SD 636 < Nokia 7 plus =SD 660 < Nokia 8/Sirocco =SD 835. Know you know where's a gap and why.

Huawei reimagined the Lumia 1020 with the P20 Pro. Now I'm waiting on Nokia's implementation of the modern 40mp beast. Don't let us down Nokia.

Looks like the world wants us to swallow the stupid, useless & wasteful notch design.
