Reports suggest that the Nokia X6 will be arriving in international markets as the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The smartphone is expected to be released in Hong Kong first. However, we ask our readers to take the news with a pinch of salt as there is currently no update of its arrival on Nokia’s social media channels.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus will have the same specs as its Chinese version. The phone was recently spotted on Geekbench and Google ARCore website.
