The Nokia X6 was launched in China in May 2018. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is actually the global variant of Nokia X6 based on the Android One program. It was rumored to launch globally later this year as an Android One device but HMD Global has now announced its global launch. Nokia 6.1 Plus has been made official in Hong Kong. Apart from being an Android One device, all the specifications and design of this Nokia X6 Global variant are the same as the original Nokia X6. The one basic difference between the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia X6 is that there is only one RAM/storage variant. You can only purchase this phone with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
