Nokia X6 is the first notched display smartphone that has been exclusively available in China since its launch in April. The rumor mill has been speculating that the handset will be made available outside of China. Finally, HMD Global has confirmed that the global roll out of Nokia X6 will begin on July 19.
The Nokia X6 has introduced the new X series of smartphones. Fresh information reveals that it will be available outside of China as the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The first market to receive it is Hong Kong. Other regions are expected to receive it in the coming weeks. As of this writing, there is no confirmation on the list of regions that will be receiving the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
Apart from the different moniker, Nokia 6.1 Plus will have identical specs and design as the Nokia X6 phone. Hence, it is expected to arrive with a 5.84-inch notched display that carries support for Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio. The Snapdragon 636 is present inside the smartphone as its driving force.
The 32 GB model of the X6 includes 4 GB of RAM. There are two 64 GB storage models of the smartphone in China. The first one features 4 GB of RAM while the other has 6 GB of RAM. It features a microSD card for more storage and it comes loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo. Since it is an Android One phone, it will offer stock Android experience. The Nokia X6 features a selfie camera of 16-megapixel and its rear panel is equipped with 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual camera setup. It receives power from 3,060mAh battery.
The three storage and RAM variants of the Nokia X6 models were introduced with respective pricing of 1,299 Yuan, 1,499 Yuan and 1,699 Yuan. HMD Global is known for selling its phones with affordable pricing in China. Hence, international markets are expected to receive it with slightly higher price tag.
On Wednesday, the company will be unveiling another X series phone named Nokia X5. Probably, China is expected to receive the smartphone with Nokia X5 and the other markets may receive it as Nokia 5.1 Plus. It is speculated that Nokia X7 is the forthcoming X series smartphone. It is likely to feature Snapdragon 710 SoC.
