HMD Global, says that it is committed to the China market, and has further announced that they will setup a global mobile center at Shenzhen in China, which will focus on research. However, the rumors have indicated that the company is going to launch its Nokia X-Series smartphone. It has an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The Nokia X6 sports a 5.8-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor clubbed with 4GB/6GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage. There is expected to be 32GB/ 64GB onboard storage, expandable up to 128GB. The rest of the phone is made up of glass with white accents around the fingerprint sensor, camera module, power button and volume controls. We are still a couple of years away from budget smartphones adopting the USB C port altogether but, this is a great step by HMD Global.

Even though the phone doesn't feature the Android One label, the Nokia X6 still comes standard with pure Android 8.0 Oreo. Other features include a 3060mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 where the company claims that users can charge up to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
