HMD Global to Release Nokia 6.1 Plus For All Fans

After HMD Global released the Nokia X6 in China, pure Android fans were fast to express their disappointment at the fact that the phone won’t make it outside of China. Given the feedback by the brand’s fans, HMD Global has decided to bring the new mid-range in the global market. A few days after the official launch in China, Juho Sarvikas has published a post on Twitter in which he implicitly confirmed the arrival of the handset even in the global market.

Recently, we learned that the Nokia X6 will be released in Europe with another name: Nokia 6.1 Plus. Thanks to a recent leak, we also know that the launch event will be held on July 19. Now, Nokia 6.1 Plus has been spotted on Geekbench with exactly the same hardware side as the X6, definitely confirming its imminent global launch. According to the known benchmarking platform, the device features an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset clocked at 1.61 GHz, but we know that its max frequency is 1.8 GHz.

While the primary 16MP sensor has been coupled with a f/2.0 aperture, the secondary 5MP sensor is coupled with a f/2.2 aperture lens.
