Nokia's Upcoming Smartphone Looks Like A Mash-Up Of The iPhone X And Huawei P20

Familiar.

It appears Nokia is jumping on the notch bandwagon too.

Photos of the Finnish company's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Nokia X, has emerged on social media and it looks oddly familiar.

The smartphone is slated to be Nokia's most exciting smartphone ever since HMD Global's takeover of the company in 2016.

The name might strike a chord with die-hard Nokia fans. Back in 2014, the Nokia X range was introduced to the masses. Sadly, due to poor reviews, the entire line was discontinued in less than 6 months. 

With new tech and brains behind the company, Nokia is hoping to give the Nokia X a new lease on life, as revealed by leaked photos making rounds on social media

Based on the images, the Nokia X will have a notch on the display which will house the necessary sensors, an earpiece, and the front-facing camera.

Rumours suggest that the phone will be at a 19:9 aspect ration and around 5.8-inch tall.

Over at the back, we see a dual-lens camera setup with a fingerprint sensor placed below it.

From the images, you can see that the Nokia X is joining the ranks of all the other Android smartphone makers who've already cloned the iPhone X's notch design

With the Nokia branding on the front, the Nokia X actually looks very similar to Huawei's P20 Lite. Here's a side-by-side comparison:
