The Nokia X6 with a display notch has been a China-exclusive phone so far. But reports of it receiving Bluetooth certification and a recent Twitter poll suggests it might launch globally soon.
The Nokia X6 that was recently launched in China has been much anticipated in the global markets. Now, based on a poll ran by Juho Sarvikas and a report on its Bluetooth certification indicates the phone will go global. The Nokia X6 is the company’s first stab at a display-notch. Considering HMD Global is just two years old, things are moving pretty fast for the company. The Nokia 7 Plus with an 18:9 display was announced early this year and quickly after, Nokia adopted the notch in the Nokia X6.
HMD Global’s Chief of Product Juho Sarvikas ran a poll on Twitter asking if people wanted to see the Nokia X6 launched outside China. The result of the poll was a resounding yes and Sarvikas promised the device will be sold outside the Chinese market in the coming months.
Later, Nokiapoweruser found the phone listed in Bluetooth certification websites and two versions of the Nokia X6 with model numbers TA-1083 and TA-1116 might be launched globally. The same TA-1116 model was spotted online in Russian and Taiwanese websites before the phone’s unveiling in Moscow indicating the two countries are on the list of markets where the Nokia X6 will be launched.
The report also comes quickly after the Nokia 5.1 received Bluetooth certification, so the two devices might launch together, as has been the case with earlier Nokia launches ever since the brand was acquired by HMD Global.
The Nokia X6 touts a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display with the controversial notch and 19:9 aspect ratio. That allows the display to take up 80.3 percent of the body. The phone has a 16+5-megapixel dual camera lens by Zeiss optics. On the front is an 16-megpaixel shooter. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which can expanded via a microSD card. The UI is based on Android Oreo and it is likely that the phone will launch with stock Android with Android One certification. There is a 3060mAh battery with fast charging support.
