Nokia X Looks Like The Huawei P20 Lite Running Stock Android
Nokia appears to be riding the notch bandwagon as well. There have been multiple leaks of the Nokia X so far and now, new live images of the upcoming smartphone have popped up on the internet. The Nokia X or the Nokia X6 will be a new mid-range smartphone from the company and some reports suggest that it could launch on the 16th of May, the same day that OnePlus launches the much-awaited OnePlus 6.
According to the images, the Nokia X will have a notch on the display which will house the necessary sensors, an earpiece and the front-facing camera. The notch has become incredibly common these days to a point that you can barely make out the differences between many phones. The Nokia X, for example, looks a lot like the Huawei P20 Lite from the front. Obviously, the branding on the front is that of Nokia instead of Huawei but, the placement of the branding, and with the notch, the differences between the two are minimal.
The Nokia X will supposedly sport a 5.8 inch IPS LCD display with a 2280 x 1080 px resolution. This translates into a 19:9 aspect ratio, the same as the P20 Lite.
The back of the smartphone has a shiny finish as you can see the reflection of the person taking the images. This could mean that the Nokia X has an all-glass design as it doesn’t seem like Nokia would revert to a shiny plastic build that looks like faux glass. The vertically placed dual-camera setup is in the usual Nokia position but, the “Carl Zeiss” branding is missing. This means that the Nokia X will cost somewhere between the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 2018. There are rumours that the device will have two variants, one running on the Snapdragon 636 with 6GB of RAM and the other with the MediaTek Helio P60 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM.
Nokia in 2018 has launched a few impressive smartphones. The Nokia 7 Plus in India has a great set of specifications and price. The Nokia 8 Sirocco, despite running on an older chipset looks great and is priced equal to the Galaxy S8. The Nokia X would be a step in a new direction as Nokia tries to catch up with the industry trends. It was late to implement the 18:9 aspect ratio but it appears that it won’t hold back when it comes to launching smartphones with a notch.
