HMD Global could revive Nokia N9 on May 2

Notably, the images confirm recent renders that the Nokia X6 will indeed sport a notch on top of the display and dual rear cameras, among other things.

Images showing the device were already posted on social media in China, and the phone does look like what you'd expect from an HMD-made Nokia phone.

Although we don't have any confirmation about the pricing, the rumor mills indicate that the Nokia X6 will cost CNY 1599 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. The brand's invite poster suggested that it could be unveiling a new Nokia X series smartphone at the event. It's not yet clear if it will make its way beyond China, but we think it likely.

The Nokia 9 screen would be protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 5. Also, unlike the original, which ran a forked version of AOSP software, the new generation Nokia X is expected to be powered by a pure Android, most probably v8.1 Oreo. Finnish site SuomiMobiili recently leaked the Nokia 9 specifications.

But it was too late to save Microsoft's biggest disaster - a year later it was forced to make thousands of redundancies and write off billions on the Nokia acquisition. Well, this won't be the first time when HMD Global would be reviving phones from Nokia's glorious past. We just have to wait for few more hours to know what the company has in store for fans. The front panel of the phone is nearly bezel-less except for small bezels at the bottom that house a Nokia logo. A dual-camera setup centered near the top of the smartphone's rear plate is also part of the package, mounted immediately above a circular fingerprint reader, as revealed by the same source.

Th 4GB RAM model would be an affordable mid-range handset running MediaTek's Helio P60 processor. The processor can be Snapdragon 636 or 660 as it is not confirmed yet. The specifications of the Nokia X6 are quite impressive for a mid-ranger, which just goes to show you how far we have come when it comes to smartphones belonging to a smaller priced category.
