HMD Global, which is aggressively pushing the Nokia brand back into the market may have broken away from the policies and practices the original Nokia pursued, but it seems like it has no hesitation in revisiting some of them. The release of the Nokia 3300 in the Indian market was one such masterstroke. The latest information about Nokia emerges from China that customers can hope to buy the Nokia X series phones again.

Nokia has a higher-end series of phones, which are known by the N series tag and then the lower or the budget phones which come in the C series. In the earlier avatar also, Nokia had these X series phones which used to occupy the middle spot between these categories and HMD Global in now planning to bring back the same concept and a new phone, the Nokia X6 could be unveiled soon. Invites have also been sent out for a May 16 launch.

The invite has an image of the phone and the following specifications and features are being speculated about the new Nokia device;

The Nokia X6 is expected to be sporting a full screen display measuring 5.8-inches and the aspect ratio would be 19:9. The now-trending notch on the top of the screen can also be seen. The processor could be either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC or a MediaTek P60. A dual camera setup is being predicted for the rear and these rumors also indicate that these new Nokia phones won’t be using the Carl Zeiss lenses.

None of these details have been obtained through official HMD Global channels and have to seen from this perspective. That is one of the reasons the information is quite sketchy and does not cover all departments of the device being launched.

Of the other smartphones that HMD Global has launched, particularly in the Indian market, the most recent one was the Nokia 8 Sirocco. Announced in the first week of April the phone, carrying a price tag of close to Rs 50,000, will be available for buyers starting today, April 30. It is likely that the Nokia 8 Sirocco may be sold through multiple channels, though online, it will have to be either Flipkart or Nokia’s own company website.
