Nokia 6.1 Plus global rollout commences, goes official in Hong Kong with Android One
After it was previously revealed by a report that HMD Global would be releasing the Nokia X6 outside of China this week, the smartphone has today made its first international appearance in Hong Kong and, just as expected, it’s called the Nokia 6.1 Plus.

Remaining essentially identical to the Nokia X6 from China, the 6.1 Plus makes use of a large 5.8-inch display which, following in the footsteps of many other devices, boasts a notch up top that is home to the front-facing 16-megapixel camera. Switching over to the rear, a vertical dual-camera setup that features a main 16-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor is placed in the center of the glass panel, while below this is a circular fingerprint scanner. In terms of the internal details, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 power the device and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. Also, 64GB of internal storage is present, although this can be further expanded via a microSD card of up to 400GB. Lastly, following in the footsteps of HMD Global’s other international devices, the Nokia 6.1 Plus ships with stock Android 8.1 Oreo as part of the Android One program.

Availability wise, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will be available to purchase in Hong Kong starting July 24 for just over $290 and will be offered in both black and white. Outside of this country, the Finnish company is yet to confirm its plans although it has recently teased a launch in Taiwan. Also, various reports claim that India and other Asian markets will receive the smartphone in August, while Europe looks set to see an arrival in September.

Too many phones by Nokia. Hopefully they're not gonna fall into the same problem as Motorola

Too many? I don’t think so. They are launching the 2018 variants of their 2017 counterparts and a plus sized version is all. China always requires specific versions of Android since they don’t use Google Play Services.

Too many phones as many as Motorola. Nokia's lineup is even more confusing.

They don’t have near as many phones out as Motorola, and there is nothing confusing about their lineup. Following numbers isn’t difficult.

Too bad for that ugly notch. I'll stick with my 7+ until they'll release a flagship with inovative camera.
