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. 

The X6 is the first Nokia phone to sport a notch display and may be an indication of what to expect from future Nokia devices. It's also the first Nokia phone to have a 19:9 aspect ratio, which certainly helps it compete with other mid-range devices. 

We say mid-range, because the Nokia X6 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor under the hood, which can be coupled with up to 6GB RAM and up to 64GB internal storage. Around the back, Nokia has fitted a dual-lens camera system comprising 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel (monochrome) sensors, both of which have f/2.0 apertures. Nokia's "Bothie" mode, which debuted on the Nokia 8, makes a return, letting you take a picture using the rear and front-facing 16-megapixel camera. 

Nokia has jumped onboard the AI bandwagon, including features such as automatic colour balance adjustments and facial recognition. 

The Nokia X6 is powered by a 3,060mAh battery, which is rechargeable via USB-C. It's not clear if it has quick charge technology. Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm headphone port, so you can still use your wired headphones. 

The X6 is available to pre-order in China from today in black, dark blue and silver colour finishes, in three configurations. 4GB/32GB for CNY 1,299, 4GB/64GB for CNY 1,499 and 6GB/64GB for CNY 1,699. Approximate conversions price the phones at $200, $235 and $265 respectively. There's currently no word on a global release. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
