Nokia X6 is official with dual cameras, 19:9 display, and notch
HMD Global has launched its new flagship, the Nokia X6, in China. The device, previously seen with the name Nokia X, was unveiled in Beijing earlier today.
The smartphone is the first Nokia device to sport a controversial notch and a 19:9 display — facets that should help it achieve a decent screen-to-body ratio. It features an octa-core, Snapdragon 636 chip, up to 6 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of internal storage space.
On the back of the X6 you’ll find a dual-rear camera setup, housing 16MP + 5MP (monochrome) sensors with f/2.0 apertures, and a 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture on the front. Software features include automatic AI image enhancements (like color balance adjustments and facial recognition), HDR photo mode, and the “Bothie” mode for using front and rear cameras simultaneously.
It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with a 3060mAh battery with USB Type-C connectivity. You’ll also find a fingerprint scanner on the back and a headphone jack at the top.

The Nokia X6 is going up for pre-order today in China in black, dark blue, and silver. It will be coming in three versions at the following prices:
- 4GB RAM / 32GB ROM: CNY 1,299 (~$200)
