HMD Global just launched the Nokia X6 in the Chinese market at a launch event on May 16, 2018. Just hours after the launch, rumors about the next Nokia-branded X-series devices have started surfacing on the internet. According to a report by Nokia Power User, HMD Global may be planning to launch two more X-series devices in the global market, the X5 and the X7. It points out that Nokia X6 is likely to be a China exclusive.

The report speculates that HMD Global may have opted to emulate old Nokia’s strategy of launching devices under the N-series, X-series and the C-series. X-series is supposed to be better than the normal, mainstream device lineup and similar to that the X6 packs a better processor, improved design and dual camera setup on the back when compared to the regular Nokia 6 lineup. HMD Global has not issued any official statement about the rumors about the more X-series devices.
