According to an article on Weibo, the Nokia X6 will feature a 5.8-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) display with 19:9 aspect ratio. While it is an almost bezel-less screen there is a small chin at the bottom with the Nokia logo. As mentioned earlier, the back panel appears to be similar to that of Nokia 7 Plus, due to the placement of the cameras and the copper accents. The Nokia X6, however, sports LED flash just below the camera.
The smartphone is said to come in two processor variants — Snapdragon 636 SoC and MediaTek P60 processor. It will also be available in two storage variants — 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage and 6GB RAM, 128GB inbuilt storage. In terms of optics, the Nokia X6 will feature a dual camera setup with 12-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens. The handset will run stock Android 8.1 Oreo. Also, it will come with a fingerprint scanner.
