The Nokia X6 is a music-oriented capacitive touchscreen smartphone and portable entertainment device by Nokia.[1] It was announced in early September 2009 during Nokia World 2009 in Germany.

The X6 replaces the Nokia 5800 as Nokia's flagship music-centred model.[2] Both still slot below some high-end touchscreen models like Nokia N97.

The X6 and the Nokia X3-00 are the first devices in newly installed Nokia Xseries. Before the Xseries, Nokia's music-centred devices were branded XpressMusic.

The original X6 includes the Comes With Music program and a licence for unlimited free downloads from the Nokia Music Store.[3] The Comes With Music version shipped in late 2009 for an estimated retail price of £529.99 or €605.

Hardware revisions[edit]

A version without Comes With Music support at €200 less was released on 23 February 2010. This version has 16 GB of on-board storage. Another cheaper variation of the X6 also without Comes With Music support was released by Nokia in mid-2010. This version has 8 GB of on-board storage and was released in Asia and North America. The 32 GB version was not released in India instead the 8 GB and 16 GB versions were provided with Ovi Music Unlimited offer.

Appearance[edit]

The X6 is notable for its slimmer body than the 5800 (13.8 mm) and 35 hours of continuous music playback. For social networking, it supports easy access to Facebook, MySpace, Ovi, Yahoo IM, YouTube, VK, Windows Live and more.
