  • Nokia X6 Launch Expected Today Teased to Sport iPhone X Like Notch

One being its incorporation of the notch display while the phone is also the first from the company's new X-series of smartphones. While the nomenclature may or may not signify the lineup's similarity to the iPhone X's notch, what we do know is that the X6 is pitched as a mid-range smartphone and not a high-end flagship.

The X6 is powered by the Snapdragon 636, the same SoC seen on devices like the Meizu E3 and Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Nokia announced the new X6 as the latest entrant to their lineup of midrange mobile devices.

The device comes with a 5.8-inch IPS display that offers Full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. Shielding the display is Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm's recently launched Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, which also powers the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, among others. You can still expand the memory with the microSD card slot.
