We’ve already had new Nokia phones this year but at least one more is seemingly coming soon, as a handset called the Nokia X has been teased for an April 27 announcement.
The teasers were spotted in China and snapped by ITHome (opens in new tab), and as well as the name and announcement date they contain an image of an X made from the edges of two handsets, though you can’t make out many details, other than the phone looking like it might have slightly curvy metal edges.
VTechgraphy (opens in new tab) notes that according to a user on Baidu (opens in new tab) (a Chinese forum) the Nokia X will apparently launch in both Snapdragon and MediaTek varieties and will be available with 64GB of storage alongside either 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
Not aiming for the iPhone
They add that the name apparently uses the letter X rather than the number 10, so this probably isn’t aimed as an iPhone X competitor. Indeed, if the spec rumors above are accurate then the Nokia X is probably more upper mid-range than high-end.
It’s also worth noting that this new Nokia X probably has nothing to do with the old Nokia X phones launched back in 2014.
There are a lot of things we don’t know about it yet, including what it will cost and whether you’ll even be able to buy it outside China, but we should find out in just a couple of weeks.
And if you were hoping for something higher-end you’re not totally out of luck, as we may still get a Nokia 9 later this year.
