After HMD Global officially launched the Nokia X6 in China, the die hard android enthusiasts were quite fast to express their disappointment mainly because of the fact that the device won’t ever make it outside of China. However, pretty shortly after that, Juho Sarvikas officially made the announcement that the device will surely be hitting the global market, due to such a positive response from Nokia fans all over the world.
Ever since the announcement by Juho Sarvikas, we all have been waiting for the global release of the device, until last week, when a believable report revealed that we can expect the phone to begin its global rollout on July 19th with the first launch being in Hong Kong. Now, a GeekBench listing of the device confirms the launch, again.
As far as we are concerned, the device is most probably be launched under a different name – 6.1 Plus and will also come with pretty identical hardware to its Chinese counterpart, along with the only difference being the software and even though the Chinese X6 variant runs on Nokia’s custom overlay, the 6.1 Plus will come with pure Android, exactly like all the rest of the globally available Nokia phones.
Although, the GeekBench score sheet lists 4GB of RAM, we expect the 6GB model to also step outside of China. Hopefully, the July 19th date for the launch of the device isn’t another rumor, but a real release date, when we will finally get to see the Nokia 6.1 leave Asia.
