Nokia X6 could be launched as Nokia 6.1 plus globally

Nokia 6.1 Plus
Nokia X6 is one of the most exciting products from HMD Global, as it offers great value for money as well as a trendy 19:9 Display with a notch. However, it remained China-exclusive. There were many rumours hinting at the global launch of Nokia X6. Even Juho Sarvikas hinted at a possible global launch of Nokia X6.

We first spotted the Nokia 6.1 plus being listed as an ARCore supported device, but later it was removed from the site as the device has not yet been announced. Now we have a good evidence that Nokia X6 might be launched globally and it might be called as the Nokia 6.1 plus.

In the list of Google Play supported devices, an unannounced Nokia device with the marketing name Nokia 6 plus has been listed. This device has the codename "DRG_sprout". We already know that the codename for Nokia X6 is Dragon (abbreviated as DRG) and all the Android One phones have the codename "sprout". Hence, it is obvious that Nokia 6.1 plus will be the Android One variant of Nokia X6. For comparison, the Chinese variant of Nokia 7 plus is codenamed B2N, whereas, the International Android One variant of Nokia 7 plus is codenamed B2N_sprout. Take a look at this image:





Nokia Mobile might be renaming Nokia X6 as Nokia 6.1 plus for the global markets. As per the report from mobilemagazinehk shared by NokiaCamp, Hong Kong will be one of the first markets to receive Nokia 6.1 plus aka Nokia X6. Nokia 6.1 plus might be launched on 19th July in Hong Kong followed by a wider roll out to other countries like India. However, the pricing will be known only after the official announcement.
