Back in May this year, HMD Global launched the Nokia X6 smartphone with Snapdragon 636 SoC. It was also the first Nokia smartphone with a notch. Later in July, HMD Global launched the Nokia X5 with Helio P60 SoC.

The display also comes with a notch up top, and helps the smartphone achieve a screen-to-body ratio of 86.5%. Like the Nokia 7.1, the display on the Nokia X7 also comes with HDR support.
