Nokia X launch is expected in China next week on May 16. It is said to be the latest mid-range smartphone from HMD Global and the first one from the company with a notch display. Nokia X has now been spotted on Chinese certification website TENAA and the listing has revealed some key specifications along with certain design elements of the handset.
According to the TENAA listing, the Nokia X model number is Nokia TA-1099. If we talk about specs, it will pack 19:9 display, dual rear cameras and more. Earlier last month, the company has showcased the smartphone at an event in Sanlitun experience store in Beijing confirming the notch on the display with a 19:9 aspect ratio.

As per the listing, the upcoming Nokia X is expected to sport a 5.8-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2280 pixels) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It might feature an aluminum casing with rounded edges and a glass back similar to the Nokia 8 Sirocco. It will run a near-stock version of Android 8.1.0 Oreo.
The phone will be powered by an unnamed octa-core SoC clocked at 1.8GHz, which could be Snapdragon 636 or some MediaTek processor. It will be coupled with 3GB / 4GB / 6GB of RAM. There is expected to be 32GB / 64GB onboard storage, which will be expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card.
