Nokia, or HMD rather, is gearing for another launch of its upcoming smartphone in India this coming August 21st. The company’s official Twitter pages have since been hyping handset, and while we do expect a flagship, it will more likely be a midrange. Possibly the Nokia 6.1 Plus, or Nokia X6 in China.
Nokia Mobile’s Indian Twitter page has posted photos it claims to have been taken using the upcoming device. At first look, the photos look good, the edges are somehow crisp and have a good amount of detail. When you zoom in though, it’s a different story. There are some parts that came out blurry (slower lens), the shadow has a good amount of noise, and some parts of photos are also grainy (especially on the hair area). This is something we don’t expect coming from an ultimate flagship. However, it’s kind of early for us to judge the photo as Twitter is known for altering image quality. Nonetheless, we know for sure we’re not looking at a flagship Nokia.
As we all remember, Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer for HMD, has conducted a Twitter poll for the Nokia X6 after it launch in China asking whether they should also bring the X6 to other markets. Over 8,000 people have responded, with 92 percent answered yes.
Getting a lot of traffic on this so let's ask around. Should we bring Nokia X6 to other markets too?

The Nokia 6.1 Plus (X6) features a 5.8-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display, with a notch on top. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Flatform, coupled with 4 or 6GB of RAM. There are two internal memory configurations to choose from, one with 32GB and the other with 64GB. Flipping the phone reveals a dual rear-facing camera. The main sensor is 16MP f/2.0 with PDAF, supplied with a 5MP f/2.4 depth-sensing camera. On the front, it will have the same 16MP f/2.0 sensor, placed inside a notch. Keeping the lights on is a decent 3060mAh of battery, with support for Quick Charge 3.0. The device will be powered by Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with Android One.
