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.
