Nokia X to launch on May 16, and it has a notch as well
We might see another Nokia smartphone soon courtesy of HMD Global, but with a very, very different look compared to the other models. The latest round-up of rumors are now going out and as expected, the new Nokia X is now inevitably sporting the worst design idea in phone design as well (the notch), and is going to look a lot like the Huawei P20 series smartphones (at least, according to these leaks below).
Two promotional posters (one seems to be a media invite) from HMD Global as well as Chinese retailer Suning who runs a photo contest from May 3 – May 20 and is giving away 10 Nokia X phones was spotted, and they reveal some key details about the upcoming smartphone.
The above poster was from the Chinese retailer Suning, and thanks to it, we seem to have an idea on how the phone is going to look like and perform. The renders of the smartphone on the poster corresponds with previous leaks, revealing a notch on the display and a vertically placed dual-camera setup on the back like the Nokia 7 Plus but the “Carl Zeiss” branding is missing.
The rumors says Nokia X will sport a 5.8-inch IPS LCD display with a 2280 x 1080 resolution, which effectively translates into a 19:9 aspect ratio, the same as the P20 Lite. Rumors also point out that the device might have two variants, one running on the Snapdragon 636 with 6GB of RAM and the other with the MediaTek Helio P60 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM.
The next (above) poster seems to be a media invite for Chinese media, and is telling us that the phone is going to launch in May 16th, the same day of the global launch of OnePlus 6.
No pricing and availability information are available as of this moment.
