Nokia X6 pricing set to start at under $240, 4GB and 6GB variants in the works
The pricing of the upcoming Nokia X6 has appeared alongside a number of specs. HMD Global is currently set to unveil its first notch-bearing device this Wednesday, May 16, which also happens to coincide with the OnePlus 6 reveal. Nevertheless, with just two days to go, the smartphone has appeared in both a Geekbench listing and a promotional poster that reveal various details.

Starting off on the specs front, the benchmark in question reveals a single core score of 1332 alongside a multi-core result of 4892. These numbers are a combination of the processor, listed as being Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636, and the RAM count which sits at 6GB. Furthermore, Android 8.1 Oreo is pre-installed, suggesting the smartphone will also join Google’s Android One program. In addition to all of this, the promotional poster that has also leaked reveals HMD Global will be selling a variant with 4GB of RAM at a lower price too. Speaking of which, the poster claims the Nokia X6 will start at 1499 Yuan, or just under $240. However, pricing for the 6GB variant is yet to be confirmed.

Aside from this information, previous leaks have revealed the upcoming Nokia device will sport a large 5.84-inch display that will feature a 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution. Also, the 4GB of RAM variant is expected to boast 32GB of internal storage, while the 6GB device will feature 64GB of storage. Moreover, both devices are expected to support storage expansion via microSD cards. Lastly, on the camera side of things, a dual camera setup is said to adorn the rear, made up of two 16-megapixel sensors, while a third 16-megapixel camera should be positioned on the front of the device.

I thought essential are the one who started the notch trend. Apple copied it no one wants to admit it by saying that the of the notch is different than essential, then how the hell isheeps saying that other companies is coping notch from Apple when other companies notch it much more smaller than the iPhone X notch and different in design too!?? The truth is you all isheeps don't want to admit that your beloved apple copied techs from other companies. Apple copied notch by Essential ,finger print scanner by Motorola ,bigger iPhones designs by Samsung(the iPhone 6 antenna design and sim slot, battery design is patented by Samsung and Apple pays royalty for the design).

Seems like Nokia is positioning the x6 in between the Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 plus. It's looking like another solid midranger and I'm sure it will have access to the android P beta and as a plus being an android one phone and starting at $240 it's a good deal.

Pricing looks very good ! And at 147mm in length it is also the second most compact Android notched phone, after the Essential PH-1.

It’s a China-exclusive device... why are any of you excited?

A few years ago everything was Korean-exclusive, so it's OK to get excited now because it means in 3-4 years everyone should get to enjoy the releases globally.

So you mean you get arrested if you buy it from a Chinese web store ? Many Chinese phones have the requires bands for Europe and at this price warranty is not an issue either.

Sounds good, I just hope the display will be properly calibrated this time, or at least we can tweak it in the settings. I hate inaccurate colors.

The display has the same dimensions as The iPhone X*. The design of the notch is the same as The iPhone X. The rear dual camera module looks exactly like the module on The iPhone X (Albeit centered). Overall, this phone looks like a replica of... You guessed it... The iPhone X. Are you seeing a trend here? Oh well, I'm not buying that thing!

It cost only 1/4th of iphone though misrangers like Nokia 7 plus is pretty solid that I'd just consider getting these rather than spending near 1000$ for samsung flagships

According to TENAA, basic model has 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and 1.8GHz octacore CPU which probably means Snapdragon 450. http://shouji.tenaa.com.cn/Mobile/MobileDetail.aspx?code=g61T3CysTlSvI%2bQgKH174WrucFazmoNi
