Nokia X rumors!
I’ve mentioned many times in my previous articles about the comeback Nokia made. HMD Global did an excellent job to the brand and it is slowly getting it back to its glory days. We saw many new great devices being announced at MWC in Barcelona. The Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco are some of the company’s best devices. But today, we have some details about the Nokia X, their next upcoming flagship. And from the looks of it, we’re definitely going to see one of their best devices ever. Let’s begin!
Starting with the design, as we can see from the images, we can see that Nokia is also jumping on the notch wagon. The 5.8-inch display features a 19:9 aspect ratio, which is currently the rising value for many smartphones that were released this year. This will be Nokia’s first device with a notch, and I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that is good or not. The notch increases the area of the display, with the bottom notch being the largest one. Rotating to the back, you will find the camera setup in the traditional upper-middle spot. The fingerprint sensor is placed right under them, with the Nokia logo completing the back look. The device has a glass back with a metal frame, the traditional features for a premium device.
You can already suggest from the name itself that the Nokia X will be a direct competition to some of the other premium devices. And looking at the leaked details about the hardware, we can expect a powerful device performance-wise. The device will feature the MediaTek P60 chipset in China, with the Snapdragon 636 making an appearance for the rest of us. Both options are great and powerful and will handle any task you throw at them. The processor will be accompanied by 4GB or 6GB of RAM, depending on the version. Again, both options should be more than enough even for the biggest multitaskers. You’re also going to get 64GB of internal storage, which should be even more upgradeable with a MicroSD card. Unfortunately, there aren’t any details about the battery, but we’re expecting it to be around the 3000mAh range.
Moving on to the cameras, again, we don’t have any detailed specifications about them. The only thing that we do know is that the device is going to feature a dual combo on the back, with a single lens on the front. All lenses should be made in collaboration with Zeiss, one of Nokia’s oldest partners. Nevertheless, we’re expecting for the device to capture excellent pictures with great color saturation and dynamic range.
Finishing with the software, we know for sure that the Nokia X is going to feature Android Oreo out of the box. As Nokia announced it few months back, all future devices will be a part of Android One’s program. That means that all of their devices will come with a stock version of Android and have guaranteed updates for two years.
Pricing and availability
The Nokia X should be announced on the 17th of May. As of now, we still don’t have any information about the price of it.
