It’ s a notched Nokia phone not made by Nokia , but HMD Global in China instead. Its most recognizable feature is a notched 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with 19:9 aspect ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer.

The leaked press renders of the phone suggest a notch above the display, which would make it the first Nokia phone to wear a notch . Additionally, there are very thin bezels on the sides and a narrow chin with an awkwardly placed Nokia branding at the bottom right.

HMD Global just announced a new Nokia-branded phone bound for China under the X-series moniker. Its most recognizable feature is a notched 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with 19:9 aspect ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer. Overall, the front of a Nokia X6 will be 95 percent screen with metal frames that come in blue, black, and silver variants.

The Nokia X6 is powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC (system-on-chip), 4GB of RAM, and 32 or 64GB of internal storage. A higher-end model exists with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. But don’t worry, all models receive microSD card slots and back-mounted fingerprint sensors. USB-C is the only port on the X6, capable of delivering Quick Charge 3.0, or 50 percent charge in 30 minutes.

HMD Global is set to unveil first notch display smartphone Nokia X 6 . There has been much hype around the introduction of a smartphone with a notch ever since the launch of their phones last month on April 4 in New Delhi.

The camera setup is intriguing since there’s a front-facing 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture (face unlock included). On the back, there’s another f/2.0 16MP sensor, paired with a smaller 5-megapixel monochrome sensor with f/2.2 lens. All the cameras have the usual suite of phone AI trickery, like background blur and face recognition.

The Nokia X6’s makers are promising Android P sometime after launch, so the X6 will debut with the current stable Android 8.1 Oreo build.

The notched phone will debut on May 21st in China, starting at 1,299 yuan ($204) for the entry-level 4GB / 32GB model. The midrange 4GB / 64GB version will go for 1,449 yuan ($236), while the top-tier Nokia X6 (6GB / 64GB) will retail for 1,699 yuan ($266).

No availability has been announced outside of China.

The Essential Phone 2 has reportedly been canceled .
Essential has canceled plans to develop a second phone and is exploring selling off the entire company, according to Bloomberg. One thing that does sound certain is that Essential’s second phone — at least as it was originally planned — isn’t going to happen. Bloomberg says the development was canceled and that engineers are now working on a smart home product, which is supposed to be released next year. That may be the Echo competitor that Essential announced a year ago, but which we haven’t heard a word about since.
