Nokia X6? The mid-range handset, the first from Nokia to sport a notch, was originally set to be released in China only. However, a poll taken by HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas revealed that consumers in other markets also want a shot at the phone. HMD officials have to be happy about that, and are no doubt thrilled by the response to the Nokia X6's launch today in China.
The flash sale of the Nokia X6 sold out in just 10 seconds, although the number of units sold was not made available. The model with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage is priced at 1299 Yuan (equivalent to $203 USD at today's exchange rate). For 1499 Yuan ($235 USD), the phone can be purchased with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. And the top-of-the-line model, with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, will run you 1699 Yuan ($266 USD). The Nokia X6 generated more than 700,000 registrations for all versions of the phone from two Chinese e-commerce firms, JT.com and Suning. The next sale is set for May 30th.
The Nokia X6 features a 5.8-inch display with a 1080 x 2280 FHD+ resolution, and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform, which carries an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.8GHz. A dual camera setup (12MP + 5MP) graces the back of the device, and a 16MP selfie snapper is found in front. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android Oreo is pre-installed.
Keep those specs in mind, because HMD Global seems to be seriously considering taking the Nokia X6 global.
