After being subject to several leaks and rumours - including having its full specs leaked just yesterday, HMD Global has officially unveiled the Nokia X6 at an event in China. Thanks to this tall display, you get tiny bezels at the top, left and right side of the phone, with the bottom bezel being relatively larger and rocking a Nokia logo. The smartphone is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 636 mobile platform with Adreno 509 GPU.

The handset will ship running Google's Oreo OS, and if Nokia's previous Android efforts are anything to go by, it will likely receive a speedy upgrade to Android P. The device is powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 636 by Qualcomm.

Till date, HMD Global has teased only the front of the new Nokia X smartphone, had revealed the back panel as well, and a vertical dual camera setup is clearly visible, with the fingerprint sensor below. There's also a dual-tone dual-LED flash on the back. Availability outside China is still unknown, but we can expect it to reach other markets where there's Nokia's market presence.
