HMD Global is expected to host an event on April 27 in China to unveil a new smartphone. And, the speculations suggest that this device could be the Nokia X. It was back in 2014 that the Nokia X was launched when the company was owned by Microsoft. It carried the credit of being the first Nokia-branded Android smartphone amidst the devices running Windows Phone.
Now GizmoChina reveals that HMD Global, which owns the license to launch Nokia smartphones is all set to unveil the Nokia X later this month. The report reveals the digital signposts with silhouettes of two smartphones crossed to form an X. And, it also tips at the April 27 launch date. The image also reveals a few other details.
Information regarding the upcoming Nokia X comes in as a huge surprise. It remains to be known if this will be a mid-range device or a flagship smartphone. The leaked image has revealed that the smartphone might arrive with a 2.5D curved display and flaunt a metal back, which appears to be curved at the corners.
While nothing else regarding the Nokia X is known for now, we came across a concept video of the smartphone earlier this month. The concept tipped that the smartphone will have a durable and trendy build as the other smartphones from HMD Global.
The concept video showed a futuristic design with a metal and glass build. The smartphone appears to embrace the full-screen design and feature a notch as in the iPhone X. However, the notch was visualized to be positioned at the top left corner instead of being at the center of the screen.
It also seems to flaunt stereo speakers, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and dual cameras at the rear from Zeiss. These two sensors are seen to be positioned horizontally with an LED flash at the middle. The other aspects shown by the concept include a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Leaving the concept video aside, there is no clue if the upcoming smartphone will be called Nokia X (ex) or Nokia X (10). If it happens to be the latter, then it could be the flagship device allegedly dubbed Nokia 10, which surfaced in rumors and speculations earlier. We are quite interested to know what HMD Global has to roll out its sleeve on April 27. But we do not expect a flagship smartphone as there has been no hype surrounding the announcement of such a device lately.
