HMD Global is planning to launch its Nokia X6 outside the Chinese market by launch it in Hong Kong. The company has scheduled the Hong Kong launch for July 19 and it is likely that the company will soon launch it in other countries. According to a report by Mobile Magazine Hong Kong, the company has decided to launch the device in the global market as Nokia 6.1 Plus instead of Nokia X6. The company is expected to make no changes to the specifications of the device except the name change.

This is the first time we have got any confirmation about the global rollout schedule for the Nokia X6 after the company launched the device in the Chinese market back in May. Though it is not surprising as the device was previously spotted on the global Nokia website along with support pages on the Nokia India website hinting that HMD Global was eventually planning to bring the device outside China. HMD Global has not issued any statement about this report. There are no details about when the company is planning to launch the device in the Indian market but it is likely to be soon.
