The Nokia X6 is coming to Europe, if the result of a poll ran by HMD Global’s – Nokia’s parent firm – Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas is anything to go by. Here’s everything we know about the handset’s impending European release.
Nokia X6: Is Nokia’s first notch-clad smartphone headed to Europe?
More than 8500 fans responded to a tweet shared by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, concurring that the decision to launch the notch-clad Nokia X6 outside of mainland China is a good idea – accounting for 92 percent of the total votes.
Let’s be clear, though: the tweet doesn’t explicitly mention Europe. It merely asks whether customers think it’s wise to release the unit in other territories, but seeing as it’s one of the firm’s most profitable markets, we think it’s a given it’s on the list.
If that’s the case, there’s a good chance we’ll see the Nokia X6 hit the shelves in the United Kingdom, a significant market for HMD Global in the region. It’s also likely it will debut in Finland and Sweden, two countries it’s often keen to target.

Or, you know, we could be way off base and Sarvikas could actually be referencing an expansion within Asia, like launching the handset in India.
Nokia X6: What is it? And where is it available at the moment?
The Nokia X6 is HMD Global’s latest budget smartphone. It’s also the firm’s first handset to come with a controversial cut-out at the top of the screen (dubbed a ‘notch’) that’s used to house vital components, like the 16MP front-facing camera.
Under the hood, you’ll find a 5.8-inch near-edge-to-edge screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 CPU, 4/6GB of RAM, 32/64GB of expandable internal storage, a dual-camera setup (16MP + 16MP) and a 3060mAh non-removable battery.
In China, the base model, which comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, is priced at 1299 yuan (£150/$200). The top-of-the-line model, on the other hand, retails for 1699 yuan (£200/$266). That gets you 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
