The Nokia X6 gets in on this year’s most divisive smartphone trend

HMD Global has announced the Nokia X6 smartphone – the company’s first to arrive with the fashionable ‘notch’ display design.

The Nokia X6 is a China-only release at present and offers 5.8-inch full HD screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio. As with many phones of this ilk, that Gorilla Glass 3 covered screen makes up 95% of the front of the phone.

Elsewhere, the mid-range X6 handset has a Snapdragon 636 SoC, combined with up to 6GB of RAM and up to 64GB storage (plus microSD support).

There’s a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, while you’ll be able to access Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 through the USB-C port. This will mean you’ll be able to recharge the phone by 50% in just 30 minutes. Sadly, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack.
