The notch design we’re seeing on smartphones is here to stay. This is because this isn’t so much a design choice but a necessity. More companies are starting to launch full screen smartphones and because many are trying to eliminate as much bezel as possible, it means that there needs to be a location to house the speaker and front-facing camera amongst other sensors, hence the notch.

Unfortunately it looks like Nokia and HMD Global can’t seem to escape that reality with the launch of the Nokia X6. This is the company’s latest smartphone which features an edge-to-edge display (save for the lip at the bottom) and a notch at the top, although thankfully in this case it does seem to be smaller than some of the other models we’ve seen.

In terms of specs, the Nokia X6 doesn’t appear to be the most powerful smartphone in HMD’s lineup. We’re looking at a 5.8-inch display with a FHD+ resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. However given its design, we suppose it’s actually not too bad or a mid-ranger.

We’re also looking at a dual rear camera setup which combines a 16MP and 5MP camera, a front-facing 16MP camera, and like we said for a mid-ranger it’s not too bad, especially when you consider that it only costs around $205.
