Nokia has been trying hard to gets its name back in the world of mobile phones. Though even after launching some brilliant smartphones in India with a great build quality, camera, and hardware configuration, they have not got the limelight the phone deserved. This was possibly due to the pricing at which these smartphones were launched. With the Nokia 7 Plus certainly delivering what Nokia is capable of.
Nokia X6, the phone about to be launched in India(more details below) is the next masterpiece from HMD Global. It is the first Nokia smartphone to support a notch display and a powerful hardware configuration. And our clear verdict is that it is the next mid-range budget smartphone you need. Take a look at the specification and features this brilliant Nokia X6 comes with.
Nokia X6 Specification
Nokia X6 features a 5.8-inch display having a Full HD Plus(1080x2280 pixels) resolution. This resolution is best among the mid-range budget phone and is a treat to eyes which offers an amazing experience while watching entertainment content or playing games. The display has a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The most important part of this phone is the aspect ratio of 19:9 and that HMD and Nokia enter into the notch display that makes the phone looks extremely beautiful. It has a metal unibody design and Nokia has never disappointed with the build quality and the same is with Nokia X6.
This phone is powered by the latest sensation Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 as was seen in the Redmi Note 5 Pro(scores 110000 on the Antutu) and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1(scores 116000 on the Antutu). Gone are the days when you will have to spend more than 20000 to look for a powerful phone. With Snapdragon 636, Nokia X6 fuels neck to neck war with Note 5 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro.
It is expected that the phone will be launched in three variants - 4 GB RAM and 32 GB Storage, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage, 6 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage. For this pricing, the performance of Nokia X6 is super smooth and you can easily multitask between multiple application and offers a great gaming experience without any issue.
In the camera, this phone has a vertically stacked dual rear camera with a 16 MP RGB sensor and a secondary 5 MP monochrome sensor which supports bokeh mode, panorama, HDR. The front camera has a 16 MP sensor and both the camera come with AI enabled software features that make the image appear near to the real world when looked with eyes and hence captures the exact beauty.
It has a battery rated at 3060 mAh and has a hybrid microSD Card slot to expand the storage up to 256 GB. The smartphone runs on Android Oreo 8.1 and we believe it would be a stock android as seen in the last few phones.

Nokia X6 Pricing In India
There are 3 variants expected of Nokia X6 to be launched in India. The expected pricing of each of the model is as follows.
|RAM||Storage||Expected Price(in Rs)|
|4 GB||32 GB||14999|
|4 GB||64 GB||16999|
|6 GB||64 GB||18999|
It is important for Nokia to be aggressive with pricing in India because of heavy competition in the under 20000 segment. If the 4GB 64GB variant is priced above 17k, then we won't be seeing stellar sales numbers.
Nokia X6 Launch Date In India
Nokia X6 is expected to be launched in India on 21st August. It is expected to be a Flipkart exclusive smartphone.
Nokia seems to have finally able to crack the question of a perfect phone at a perfect price. Nokia X6 has already done wonders in China where it went out of stock in seconds similar to what we saw for the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. We believe Nokia X6 will deliver with the same impact and become the next best mid-range budget smartphone at least for a while till the competitors look for a dose to beat it.
Overall, looking at what we know about this smartphone, it is surely going to create a solid impact for users looking for smartphones in 15000 to 20000 budget. With a beautiful notch display, solid quality and a top-notch performance make it a top bet for best phones under 15000 and 20000.
