Nokia X is gunning for the iPhone X crown


HMD Global, the company that licenses the Nokia-brand, is reported to have been working on the launch of all new Nokia X in China on April 27. Leaks suggest that the Nokia X will use Snapdragon and MediaTek mobile processors, depending on the phone variant.

Back in January, Nokia officially unveiled an updated version of its Nokia 6, floating the handset up into the mid-range market without significantly increasing the price tag.

No major changes have been made to the design of the device. The first Nokia X was presented as an entry-level smartphone, while the latest one will get heavier specs and features. After the Nokia X, the public can expect another launch later this year with the arrival of the Nokia 9. There is also tapering at the edges which could be a curved screen, but it's tough to tell from the picture. From feature phones like the Nokia 3310 (2017) to low-priced Android smartphones like the Nokia 1 and premium handsets like the Nokia 8 Sirocco, HMD has revived the Nokia brand especially in core Asian markets such as India.

The Nokia X naming is familiar to iPhone X. It's obvious that HMD won't try to compete against Apple. It is expected to have 64GB internal storage alongside either 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
