Since HMD Global took the helm of Nokia brand, many legendary Nokia phones have been reborn for the modern day. According to recent leaks, the next Nokia device to see a reboot will be the Nokia X6.

The Nokia X6 was released back in 2009 as their flagship device. It featured a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera and 16/32gb of inbuilt storage – which was a lot for the time. It also ran Symbian (version 9.4) as supposed to Android or Windows Phone.

The original X6 was predominantly praised for it’s bold, sturdy design as well as it’s superior multimedia functionality. It even came with a years subscription to the Comes With Music service. This gave users access to thousands of music tracks for free.

So what can we expect from the rumoured 2018 Nokia X6?

Starting with the most glaring change, the 2018 X6 will feature a 5.8-inch 1080 x 2280 display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It will also be the first Nokia smartphone to feature the infamous notch.

In terms of internal specifications, current leaks point to there being two variants. The entry-level Nokia X6 will include the MediaTek Helio P60 Chipset with 4GB of RAM and the slightly pricier version will feature the Snapdragon 636 with 6GB of RAM.

Both versions bear decidedly midrange specifications, but that is to be expected considering the 2018 Nokia X6 will start at around $250.

The Nokia X6 will also feature a dual camera setup, USB C charging, the 3.5mm headphone jack will be retained (thank you Nokia!) and also Android 8 Oreo out of the box.

As always, these are just rumours so take everything here with a pinch of salt. If the rumours are accurate, the Nokia X6 will be announced within next couple of days for the Chinese market.

When HMD Global released their first Nokia branded phones in 2018, they too were first released only in China. They did, however, eventually make their way to the UK and US. Hopefully, we’ll see the same go for the Nokia X6 later this year.
