After weeks and weeks of rumors we already have among us Nokia’s new premium mid-range smartphone, a device that has created an expectation and confusion typical of a flagship and from which we can finally tell you all its details. This is how Nokia X6 .
Nokia has done a great job with its new smartphone, since it has been able to imitate Apple’s notch, and even so, the Nokia X6 boasts its own personality and design lines, something that has merit in a market so saturated and where originality is in danger of extinction.
Nokia joins the X6 to the current market trend of betting on the premium construction and noble materials even in the most discrete ranges. And make no mistake, the Nokia X6 is a large mid-range smartphone, but its design could house a Snapdragon 845 without disheveled.
So, we have glass present both on the front and on the back of the smartphone, together with an aluminum chassis that only occupies 5% of the external surface of the device and that is responsible for housing the Volume and power buttons (right side), the USB port Type C and 3.5 mm jack for headphones (bottom side) and a hybrid slot for Micro-SD and dual nano SIM card (left side).
Consume knowing that the Nokia X6 is able to combine the modern with the classic, and despite its notch screen, does not require us to buy a wireless headphones or an adapter for the USB port. It is also traditional the position of the fingerprint reader, which as is logical in a mid-range, flee from sensors under the screen or other more expensive solutions and is housed in the back.
This is what Nokia offers us for its new mid-range when we start analyzing its screen and performance:
One of the things that we have been able to clarify with the official launch is that Nokia will not resort to two different processors according to version (there was talk of a Mediatek Helio P60), so all models, regardless of their RAM or storage, will make use of the new Qualcomm midrange, something logical when optimizing and updating the ROMs.
Nokia follows the steps of Xiaomi extending the double sensor to all its ranges, and this time we see how the Nokia X6 follows in the footsteps of its older brother (Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco) and integrates two sensors 16 and 5 megapixels.
This photographic section is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range) and has a mode of automatic optimization of photographs by combining several shots.
Nokia is also committed to quality selfies, and although it integrates a single 16 Mpx front sensor , makes use of Artificial Intelligence and post-processing to integrate the portrait mode they call ” Intelligent 3D blur ” This sensor will also help us unlock the smartphone , although we assume that its effectiveness will be subject to the lighting conditions and the circumstances of our face such as body hair or glasses.
The Nokia X6 for now is only available in China , although it is expected that HMD Global will later extend its sale to the rest of the planet.
It will have a price of 175 euros for the version of 3/32 GB, while the version of 4/64 GB it will cost about 202 euros and the most premium with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory rises to the 229 euros. They are good prices, without a doubt, although we assume that they will suffer a certain increase (taxes and those things) in the event that the Nokia X6 reaches our continent.
