HMD Global is gearing up for the launch of Nokia X in China next week. The smartphone is speculated to be placed in the mid-range segment and the first from the company to follow the new trend of having an upper notch popularised by the Apple iPhone X last year. Today the device with model number TA-1099 made an appearance in Chinese regulatory body TENAA revealing the design aspects along with the specs.
The TENAA render reveals the smartphone will feature an aluminum casing with round edges and glass back similar to what we have seen on the Nokia 8 Sirocco. It measures 147.2 x 70.98 x 7.99 mm and weighs 151 grams. It sports a 5.9-inch display with a resolution of (1080 x2280 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19:9 because of the top notch.
The Nokia X will be powered by an Octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz which is most likely to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset. It will be offered in three memory configurations: 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage.
In the optics department, the smartphone will sport a dual camera setup on the rear, but TENAA lists only a 16 MP single sensor. However, there is no need to worry as the renders show dual cameras on the back. On the front, it also offers a 16 MP camera for selfies and video calling. The sensors are speculated to be Carl Zeiss optics, but the report made no mention of that. It will run on Android 8.1 Oreo and will be backed by a 3,000 mAh battery.
There is still confusion about the exact name of the smartphone as it is still not announced. Speculations range from Nokia X6 to Nokia X8 (2018). All confusions will be cleared once the Nokia X launches on May 16 in China. Till now there is no other information regarding the price or availability of the smartphone outside China.
