The Nokia X6 is the first smartphone from HMD Global (exclusively available in China) to sport an iPhone X like a notch. This phone also offers a lot of value for money and HMD Global's CPO did a pol on Twitter, where 92% of the users were interested in the Nokia X6.
And now, according to a report from mobilemagazinehk, the Nokia X6 could soon launch in the international market as the Nokia 6.1. In fact, the smartphone was also spotted on the Nokia India website. However, there is a contradictory situation, as Nokia already has a smartphone as the Nokia 6.1 (Nokia 2018) in India and the company might not call it as the Nokia 6.1 at least in India.
The only difference between the Nokia X6 in China and the international version will be in terms of operating system. The Chinese version does not offer Google Play Services, whereas the international model will come with stock Android user interface with Google Play Service support.
