For the past two weeks, several variants of Nokia X6 made their way to international telecom regulatory agency websites ranging from Taiwan in the east to Russia up north and in the west too, giving us telltale signs the company is preparing for the international unveiling event, but we didn't know for sure when. Now, the very Android device made a brief appearance at the Nokia official global website hinting the launch is just around the corner.
Just a few hours ago, Nokia X6 stopped by the company's official Nokia.com, the international English site (not China) and once the word got out in the media, HMD Global Oy took the product page off its website. But, by then many had taken the screen-shot and even got web-cache (courtesy, Nokia Latest blog) confirming the existence of the Nokia X6 global variant.
We believe HMD Global is expected to host a private probably in a few weeks to the official reveal which markets it will release the Nokia X6.
Will Nokia X6 come to India?
Absolutely yes! India is a very important market for the company and HMD Global Oy has been reiterating the same fact in almost all product launch events. India is fastest growing and also second biggest smartphone market in the world and many companies believe, India will be the next big revenue generator as most of the big markets like China, US and Europe have almost saturated. And, most people own smartphones and tend to week phone longer a year. But in India, which has 1.3 billion population, only little over 300 million own smartphones, while the rest are still using keypad-based feature phones and some don't even own a mobile.
Many companies believe India is next big smartphone sale growth generator and it would be beneficially especially for HMD Global Oy, as most users in India are well aware of the Nokia brand. Iconic phones such as Nokia 3310, N95, 5110 are still treasured by users in India.
Even the Nokia X6 is likely found good traction in India provided the company retails the device with an aggressive price similar to rival brand Xiaomi.
