During the past weeks, we've been hearing a lot of data about the Nokia X6, the HMD Global's new phone. At the moment, there is no information provided about the price of the 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM variant. The benchmark listing also indicated that the Nokia X6 will run on Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box and will be powered by SDM636, which stands out to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC. It's due to get a dual-lens rear camera comprising 16- and 5-megapixel sensors, while a 16-megapixel camera with "AI Skills" will adorn the front. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v5, GPS/ A-GPS and USB Type-C. If launched in India, Redmi S2 or the rumoured Redmi Y2 will have the same set of specifications as recently-launched Redmi Note 5.

The battery in the Nokia X6 has a capacity of 3,060 mAh and comes with Quick Charge 3.0, that allegedly delivers a 50% top up in 30 minutes. There should be a 6GB RAM option in the pipeline as well, while Tenaa also hinted at an entry-level 3/32 gigs SKU that's likely to blow our minds with its affordability.
