Nokia X6 16GB Announced

January 26, 2010, By Thomas Antony


The Nokia X6 was Nokia’s first smartphone to sport a capacitive touchscreen as opposed to a resistive touchscreen such as those found in the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. The X6 went on sale with 32GB of internal storage back in November 2009. Now Nokia has started shipping a little brother to the phone in the form of the X6 16GB.

The capacitive touchscreen responds much more precisely and quickly to the input as compared to the pressure-based resistive touchscreens that Nokia seemed to be very fond of sometime ago. The new X6 is very much like its big brother, with a 3.2inch touchscreen display, and is available in four new colors including black, white, white with pink and white with yellow. The smartphone runs on Symbian S60 OS and is claimed to give upto 18 days of standby time and 11.5 hours of talktime.

The device has a 5MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash and also includes the new Ovi Maps navigation service along with preloaded games like Spore and Asphalt4. The original X6 had a pricetag of $676 and this one is sure to cost much lesser than that, but the catch being that, the 16GB version will not come with Nokia’s music service. The exact price is still unknown and the handset will be available this quarter.
