Unveiled on January 8, Nokia 6 is slated to go on sale in China on Wednesday, January 11. During the launch, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) partner HMD Global Oy had announced that there are no immediate plans for making it available outside China.

Now, new evidence (courtesy, Nokia Power User) suggests that the company is secretly readying an international Nokia 6 variant. The device bearing Nokia 6 moniker with model number TA-1003, understood to be the global variant has passed Bluetooth certification and many believe that it might be unveiled at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017. Nokia has already confirmed its participation in the Barcelona event from February 27-March 2. [Note: TA-1000 model is China-region specific model]
