Propelled by the community, Nokia X6 heads to Western markets

Earlier this week, HMD Global officially took the wraps off of the Nokia X6, confirming much of what had previously been rumored. The device was, however, only meant to launch in the Chinese market.

But the general response of the Nokia community was pretty positive towards the device, and Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, launched the poll yesterday on Twitter to let the users decide the fate of the X6 in international markets:

The public vote matched the initial buzz, and an overwhelming 92% of voters said they want to see the device outside of China. The positive response led to a (sort of) announcement by Sarvikas earlier today:

There is no clear indication yet of which specific markets, but it's reasonable to expect the company to launch the device in the markets where previous devices have also been released.

As a reminder, here are the specs of the Nokia X6:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 636
  • 5.8-inch 2280 x 1080 display with a 19:9 ratio
  • Dual-rear cameras (16MP + 5MP) and a 16MP front-facing camera
  • 3,060 mAh battery which charges via USB Type-C
  • 4G LTE

There are also three storage configurations announced for China, but there's no guarantee that all of them will make it to international markets:

  • 32GB of storage + 3GB RAM
  • 64GB of storage + 4GB RAM
  • 64GB of storage + 6GB RAM

There's no word on international pricing yet, but the Chinese prices for the different configurations are roughly equivalent to $204, $235 and $266, respectively. This would put the Nokia X6 very close to the price of the Nokia 6 2018, despite some significantly better hardware.
