HMD Global unveiled the Nokia X6 in May but fans outside China were disappointed since the phone wasn’t up for a global release. Acknowledging the official response from its fans, HMD Head Juho Sarvikas confirmed that they’ll soon launch the phone in the global market as the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
Ahead of an official unveiling, the Nokia 6.1 Plus has visited Geekbench and from what’s been revealed, the device bears a lot of resemblance to the Nokia X6. The device comes powered by the same Snapdragon 636 processor with Android 8.1 Oreo, indicating this is another one of HMD’s devices to fall under Google’s Android One programme.
The listing shows the 4GB variant of the device while we also expect a 6GB variant of the phone with up to 64GB of onboard storage. For imaging, it’s likely that the Nokia 6.1 Plus will boast the same setup as the one on the Nokia X6 with a 16MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary monochrome sensor as dual cameras at the back. There will also be a 16MP lens with f/2.0 aperture on the front for selfies and Face Unlock.
According to the listing on Geekbench, the Nokia 6.1 Plus scored 4,903 points on multi-core while single-core tests resulted in 1,332 points. The rebranded Nokia X6 phone is expected to launch in Hong Kong on July 19 as part of its global release.
