Nokia 6.1 Plus benchmark listing reveals mid-range hardware, Android 8.1.0 Oreo
If you're waiting for a mid-range Android smartphone with the notched display, you'll probably want to wait a bit longer as HMD Global is readying the Nokia X6 for a global release. The upcoming worldwide variant will be called Nokia 6.1 Plus and it's expected to hit the market on July 19.

From what we know so far, the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia X6 should be similar specs-wise, and a recent listing at Geekbench confirms that. The Nokia X6 is available in three variants 4GB and 6GB RAM/32GB storage, as well as 4GB RAM and 32GB storage.

This particular version of the Nokia 6.1 Plus that has just popped up at Geekbench packs 4GB RAM and runs Android 8.1.0 Oreo, unlike the Nokia X6 model that runs a custom UI for the Chinese market.

The list of partial specs also confirms the global version will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. We're hoping the Nokia 6.1 Plus will indeed come out on July 19 as rumored, but it will probably take some time until it reaches global availability.
